I have a JAMES SOUNESS that is my ggggrandfather. He was an 1820 BRITISH SETTLER and in Thomas Pringle's Scottish party. The ONLY Scottish party in the British Settler Scheme.
They travelled on the 29th of December 1819 from Leith to London. They departed on the Brig, Brilliant from Gravesend on 15 February 1820 and arrived in South Africa (Algoa Bay) on 15 May 1820.
James was a 19 - 21 year old ploughman and servant of Charles Jervis Buchan-Sydserff. Charles was the younger brother of the Baron of Rucklaw, near Prestonkirk in East Lothian(Haddingtonshire)
James Souness was a substitute when 5 people in the party of 24 decided not to travel to South Africa.
James married Susanna du Preez in South Africa in 1830. She had an illigitimate child by another man. James and Susanna Souness baptised the eldest 3 children in St Georges cathedral (Church of England) in Cape Town. Children 4 - 7 were baptised in the Dutch Reformed Church, Colesberg. They had the following children:
1. Catharina Beatrix - named after maternal grandmother
2. Anna Augusta
3. Jacobus Johannes - named after 2 maternal uncles
4. Johannes Lodewicus - named after maternal uncle
5. Susanna Maria - named after mother & mother's sister
6. Johanna Helena - named after 2 maternal aunts
7.Hendrik Alexander Philippus - Hendrik & Philippus are the names of 2 maternal uncles
The traditional naming pattern was not followed.
I cannot find a Death Notice for James Souness in the archives of Cape Town.
Question 1: Parents, siblings of James Souness
Question 2: where was he baptised/Christened? (What town did he originate from?)
There were Souness emigrating to South Africa, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Name variants: Zones,Zounes,Sones,Sonnes,Sonus,Zoons,Souness(Scottish),Sounness,Soanes,Soans,Sownes,Sonas,Soonius

On 25 Oct 1872 Andrew married at Wedderburn, Dunbar, Helen McGill b 1852 at Prestonkirk d 1929.
They had a son Thomas b 1873 at Co-Path d 1960 at Newcastle.

Hi Jessie,
It certainly looks like Thomas McGill & Helen Pringle were her parents.
Helen seems to have been born around 1821 at Pencaitland.

Hi Mccubbin
My name is Maria Susana Sounes. If you have any extra info I can use on the Sounes family I would appreciate. Currently I dont have much, only James Souness. 1820 British settler. I would love to find other family members in South Africa.
Thanx
