Hello Mark
Thankyou for this information, but some parts have me stumped. This Otto Simon Henry Harcourt is I believe the eldest son of George Harcourt's second marriage to a Gertrude Charlotte Lucas married abt 1846.

From what I have been told is that Otto Simon Henry Harcourt married a Muriel Ascroft abt 1892 and they had a son named Charles Walmer Harcourt b abt 1895. This son later used his mothers name Ascroft to enable him to inherit a gold mine in Magliesburg, Africa.

I also am led to believe Charles Walmer Harcourt (Ascroft) married in 1912 a Cecil Violet Enid Greville at Pietermaritzburg, Natal, Africa.

Is there any confirmation as to this person Charles and did he have siblings.

Thankyou
