thank you Pampoen. Sadly, this is not my people. Frustratingly similar names. Thank you for looking and posting.

Amelia and John George apparently arrived in SA in January 1874 from England. I don't know where they arrived bit the came from Liverpool in England.

The two ports of arrival at the time would have been either Cape Town or Durban.  It is possible they landed at Durban as it appears he may have had his passage sponsored and they would have travelled inland from there.

Have you tried to find out which vessel they arrived on?  That would give the port that they disembarked.

Find My Past has passenger lists that are online and searchable, but it is a pay site.

My apologies, have your thread mixed up with another one :-[ :-[

They would likely have landed at Cape Town, it was the port that most ships stopped and then onto Durban.

Will have a look and see what I can find, but you can post a query and perhaps someone will be able to track them down for you.

Regarding John George White's death on 17 May 1892 and burial. I appreciate what you said re gravestone records, but are there any church records in local archives in Bolotwa or Queenstown?

Church records were held by the individual churches themselves.   There are some available on Family Search

The oldest one apparently is a Wesleyan Methodist Church, a lot of the early settlers seemed to have been married/baptised/buried by the Wesleyan Church

Methodist and English Registers are held by the Cory Library in Grahamstown
