South Africa / Griqualand board of executors
« on: Tuesday 11 December 12 04:34 GMT (UK)  »
Hi I am trying to trace the following 2 estate records.
GROOM, Claud A   1882   9    M   Blean   Kent
GROOM, Leon J   1884   7    M   Blean   Kent

Both names on NAAIRS have references to the DEPOT McGregor Museum, Kimberley. On clicking on the file I can find no trace of their names amongst the names listed.

I take it that their estates must be lying in the museum. How does one access these records? Can anyone see these 2 names on the list of estates listed? Perhaps I missed them.

Thank You                                           

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / frances groom returning to the UK
« on: Sunday 09 December 12 05:42 GMT (UK)  »
Hi I am looking to see if the following person returned to the UK?
Frances Elizabeth Groom born Wood in 1851 married Henry Groom on the 19th July 1875 at Le Havre in France. In 1892 the 2 of them sailed from Southampton to Durban South Africa. HE Groom was murdered on the 18th December 1900. No further record can be found for his wife which makes me think she returned to the UK.

Can someone check these 2 records as well please?
 Frances E Groom died March 1911, Ref 84  Medway  2a 477 on Free BMD, and  a birth for a Frances E Wood born March 1851, Ref  Brighton  7 344.

Apologies for the wrong heading earlier confused the mother with the daughter.

Hi I wonder if anyone has any info on my uncle Reginald Austin who was the managing director of Union Castle Safmarine in Cape Town. I have some info as follows.
Name : William Reginald Hessett Austin

Place Of Birth : Vryheid, Natal
Wifes Name: Ellen Elizabeth Osborn Evans
Marriage Date : 01 December 1937

In particular I would like to get a copy of his estate which I cannot find on NAAIRS. Both him and his wife died within months of each other in 1978. I know they had a house in Constantia which was sold and I remember him always dealing with Syfrets. Regards Derek
