Wesleyan Missionaries in South Africa
« on: Sunday 04 January 09 11:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I'm trying to find my gg grandmother's family.  They were missionaries in South Africa, in Namaqualand.  Her name was Sarah Dean and she would have been born around 1845.  She married George Cooke in South Africa. 
Her parents may have been Wesleyan missionaries.  Can't seem to find any info about them despite looking on various missionary sites.
There are just too many Sarah Deans in Britain (IGI) at the time - and don't have dates for when they went to SA.  Don't know who her parents were and by finding missionary info am hoping to unlock this information.

Could anyone please point me in the right direction?

Thank you
 :D

Hi  I'll send you a private message - I have Wesleyan missionary contacts - but only e-mail addresses which I'm not sure I should transmit here.  One of my family went out to South Africa as a Wesleyan Missionary, and I had a lot of help from these people.
