Death in Cradock 1853
« on: Tuesday 19 January 16 16:15 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I hoping someone can help me with details of a death.

George Thorne Huxtable was b 1822 in Devon, England. According to family notes he died in Africa, date unknown. I'm assuming they meant South Africa  ;D

He is last seen in the 1841 census with his parents and siblings living in South Molton, Devon.

Yesterday I found an article in the Grahamstown Journal:
"DIED at Cradock on the 29th Aug. 1853, George T. HUXTABLE, after a short illness of four days."

I am hoping that this is my George. Is there anyway I can find/order a death cert?

I would appreciate any leads.

Thanks  :)
