I am trying to find information about Percy John Dunstan (born 1908) who married Olive Gwendoline Smith and had a child called Gwen Mills Dunstan in South Africa.

Thank you and regards,


Percy's full names were Percy John Mills Dunstan and his was born on 25/7/1908 to Alfred Pearce Dunstan and Elizabeth Sophia nee Mills.  Elizabeth died on 2/8/1919 and her estate file is on family search.

There is a facebook page for the Eastern Province Child and Youth Care Centre - established in the late 1800's. Perhaps contact them. Maybe they would have some information or could tell you who to get hold of.

I have been unable to trace a marriage or divorce between Harry and Ida.  What record do you have for his year of birth being 1922?

Are you perhaps referring to the village of Rhodes in the Eastern Cape, as there is no town Rhodeshia. Do you perhaps know any more details on Harry such as the name of his wife, children he had, and possibly where he passed away?

I suggest that you look on family search, catalogue, Sierra Leone and then civil births. There are well over 2,000 births registered under Lewis.

I have just checked the marriage of Dirkie - her mother was born on 14/2/1901 - whereas her marriage gives a year of about 1897.

Which of the daughters is your relative?  Perhaps it is worth starting from the beginning again!

With respect, I think that your friend was incorrect.  Easy to do as there are a number of people with the same name.

Are you sure of the date of death?  Dirk, on his marriage certificate is a farmer, whereas the Dirk on the death is a herdsman.

The one who died in 1932 did not leave an estate that I can find - being a farmer that would be a bit odd I think.

Where did you get the birth and baptism dates from for your Dirk?  The only baptism with those details is that of the son of Petrus Benjamin.  Looking at his marriage to Margaretha his year of birth was about 1897.
