My Great Grandfather was the Charles Daly born Gort, County Galway, Ireland in 1832 on I believe 17Th March. He swam ashore from the Birkenhead wreck as discussed and finally died from an Ox kick to the head aged 71 on 16 April 1903.

He married Harriet Janet Roesch born 21Nov 1842 in Bloemfontein on 28Sep 1865.
His eldest son was Martin George Daly born 9/7/1866 in Bloemfontein.
His youngest son Nimrod Jerome Daly (my Grandfather) was born in Bloemhof on 11/7/1881 and died about 1929. He married Eugenie Thomson in Kimberly on 16/3/1907

My mother Quilimane Daly was his third of ten children. She was born in Mafeking on 14 seep 1911 and  died in Cape Town on 11/ Oct 1974.
I was named with the very Irish first name of my uncle (Hanlon) who died aged about 21years old of a ruptured appendix. He had been schooled at St Andrews.

Family history also confirmed Verbally that Charles' father Did indeed work as Bailiff to the Earl.

Quilimane was named after the then town, now city, in Northern Mozambique which allegedly was "the most beautiful place Charles had seen since leaving Ireland".

"Mane"as she was known married my father Leslie L.J. Chiddy in 1939 in ? Bloemfontein. They were both from Mafeking area, and I have visited the farm " Logageng" as a youngster. they settled in Cape Town.

I now live in Sydney , Australia.
p.s.
are we related ??

This is certainly a slowly-slowly-catchy-monkey hobby!! I am still on the Irish trail of Charles Daly.(South Africa)  I may have made a breakthrough- those in the know will inform me, I'm sure.
We know that his father, Martin 'worked as a bailiff' for Lord Clanricarde. I have found a Tithes Applotment entry for a Martin Daly in 1856. His landlord is Lord Clanricarde and he lives in Rosmore, Parish Ballynakill, Barony of Leitrim. He is Church of Ireland (Charles was married from The Anglican church in South Africa) and listed under the Diocese of Clonfert and Kilmacduagh. Charles' DC says that he was born in Gort. Am I clutching at straws here?? All advice welcome.
