Hi everyone

A big ask here with very little information but I know how fabulous Chatters are at finding things so thought I would ask anyway.

From a Death Notice found in a South African archive, John PENDER was born about 1871.  No place other than Great Britian.  His age is deduced by his age at the date of death.  He died in 1911 and was 40.  He married a South African woman so no help there.  The only other bit of information is that he was a blacksmith.

From a baptism certificate (which I have not seen personally) and a letter to John, it states his father is Frederick or John (so maybe Frederick John or John Frederick) and mother is perhaps Mary Rogers.

I have looked at the 1881 Census but can't seem to see anything that will fit.

I have checked emigration records but can't see anyone fitting exactly.

Can anyone find something that I am overlooking?
