Have you tried familysearch   https://www.familysearch.org/search/hr/search

Sorry I would look for you but those names are not clearly set out.  ;)

I got rather lost among all those names with limited personal data and no indication how every one relates to each other. Maybe it would be better to divide them into bite size pieces eg family groups. Give the information that is already known for one family (parents, place/date of birth, partners etc) in one post ... wait a bit for responses..., and after a while repeat for another group. I'd expect that you would get better results.

eg I assume that this could be the probate for one of the mothers:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C919-3WSD-8?i=719&cc=2517051
Unfortunately I can't be sure as you haven't given this explicit information ... and it would be a waste to spend time on something that is most likely already known.

PS By helping us, you wil help yourself ...!

Rhoda's marriage 1894

I have not looked for anymore  ;)

It may be an idea to look at familysearch to see what you can find then come back to us with what you can't

It seems that my search for the Brotherton is causing to much trouble for you I have got already some info from family search what I really want to close my loose ends are the deaths for these people and these I cannot find on family search thought by putting the topic on South Africa board I may have got some answers,  I am related to the Brotherton through the Landless line and these dates are the only missing info I need, I have spent many years since retirement doing my family tree and I have traced back to 1209 the Landless side.
So I will just have to leave the loose ends.

No it is certainly not causing too much trouble.  Until now you were saying you had not found any information on them when what you are now asking for is their deaths.

I have ancestors in my tree with the surname Brotherton who came from the Nelson/Brierfield area of Lancashire, and emigrated to South Africa and I have been unable to find any records for any of them.


We are trying to help but obviously don't want to spend time looking for information that is freely available and that you may already have.  As I said in my last post let us know what else you can't find and hopefully we will be able to help you find their deaths.

I did post a link to Sarah's death on my last post
