A FamilySearch tree for Edward George LANDELLS -
https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/L1J9-H5G
collates some of the information of his occupation and residences over time, obtained from the images of birth records of his children.
Also recorded there is his marriage on 22 March 1900 at Holy Trinity Church, Kalk Bay, Cape Town to Elizabeth Cutting.
Occupation: 1901 - stone mason; 1905 - stone cutter; 1909 - Police constable
Residences: 22 Mar 1900 - Kalk Bay, Cape Town; 1909 - Diep River, Cape Town

Not on that tree, but available on the images of the birth register for the children (at FamilySearch), are witness names that include Landells and Cutting.

Hi ladies!(Westernwombat and anicalouw). I have been following all of the posts on this thread with great interest. My opinion is that Edward is the Eddie noted by his mother on his sibling's birth registration AND the absconder who left his illegitimate child and his mother in the lurch. This is not unusual and he was young! The irony is that he later became a policeman! 😊 Although his brother-in-law (Vera's husband Martheze) was also a policeman. His son and 2 son-in-laws also became policemen.
