Thanks so much.

Yeah I was hoping we were related to Sir George Cory who it was named after. That would be an interesting story. :)

My father and his brother are convinced their dad was from Wales or his Grandfather was. So I have been trying to look for people who arrived in Algao Bay either with sons or alone but still be old/young enough to have a son in 1914. That was a rabbit hole of note.

But I take that with a pitch of salt as they argue whether there was a Granny Blue or Brown or Black.....they know its a colour. Now that I found  Marguerite Brown they convinced their is an Aunty Blue....sigh.

Have you seen this on Wikitree https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cory-941

I have yes. Des Lynch came from my Moms side so it stops at Kenneth....AGAIN. :)

Funnily enough I used to clean that grave as a youngster for my dad. Marguerite my gran and Dennis my uncle are right next to it. All three in a row. Its kinda what put me on this path a few years ago. But gave up after we could not go past Kenneth. I know of 3 other cousins who started and gave up. :( But I am not this time.

Looks like Hilton moved to Joburg where his second wife died.

Well when I showed this to my dad he said "Oh yes she committed suicide." Seems that she jumped off a building in Joburg.

Edit: It would really be nice if he told me these things upfront. :)

After a fair amount of Googling and maps I found the house that Trevor Clifford lived in with my Great Gran. I did a Deeds search and found it has been owned by the Church since 1962. I know it was owned by our family in the early 50's so hoping they owned it up till then. I am currently digging to see if we can go further back.

All the contact details for the various Provincial Archives are listed here http://www.national.archives.gov.za/naairs.htm

The archives in SA are partially closed at the moment so it may take time. The estate file listed earlier in this thread will not be on-line as it is in the Kimberley range and that range is only on-line till the mid 1930's

The other document types are not on-line

Well it seems Kenneths mom was Elizabeth Lauder or Louder and she died in PE in 1954. So gives me a start.
