South Africa / Re: Josua Benjamin Le Roux UITENHAGE - Dutch Reformed Church Cemetery
« on: Thursday 14 October 21 13:54 BST (UK)  »
I see from his death docs, has was buried at the Dutch reformed church Uitenhage

The death notice says that he was buried at a "Dutch Reformed Burial Ground" (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-95F8-P1T?i=525). I don't necessarily interpret this as a burial right next to the church. It could have been a designated area for Dutch Reformed burials (i.e. part of a larger cemetery or a stand alone cemetery).

I'm not sure how Brighton entered this story as Mrs J B Jamieson was a resident from New Zealand and had embarked in Cape Town (as per the Melbourne version of the Baradine passenger list: https://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/scripts/AutoSearch.asp?O=ID&Number=10366229&i=270).
NB This might be her trip back to NZ: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-62R5-YR?i=13

She is likely to have been Jessie Bayley Jamieson who was married to Thomas Dewes Jamieson.  She is mentioned as follows: https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/ESD19271116.2.124.1?end_date=01-12-1927&items_per_page=10&query=jamieson

I found a text version of that 2020 article. Unfortunately the mystery of the gravestone was not resolved by the writer either.

According to the available SA indexes, Eva Violet POPIEL died on 17 Jun 1988.
Unfortunately I can't tell you anything more as these are pay sites.

I could be wrong, but it looks like 5 to me ...

FYI The parents weren’t married until 1787: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZV-6S7J-T?i=381 & https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-652F-GM?i=60 (bottom right)
I can't see any late 1790's baptisms/births, but there was a son who might have been born shortly  before Florina: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZV-6SQJ-M?i=371

This might be him, shortly before his ordination:

Yes I'd been wondering the same via the actual passenger list, but his age made me doubt myself.

Australia / Re: William Briggs marriage.
« on: Monday 04 October 21 11:16 BST (UK)  »

Once I had figured out that your William BRIGGS had been transported on the England, I could rule out at least 2 of the names:

BRIGGS, William, ship: Speke (3), applied to marry: BURKE, Eliza
BRIGGS, William, ship: Hercules, applied to marry: GARVER, Norah
