Caldwell family
« on: Monday 27 February 23 09:58 GMT (UK) »
Looking for help please?

The Caldwells sailed in from Ontaria Canada to Durban in the late 1800’s on the Minerva. Robert Caldwell and his family consisted of 3 Two girls and James who settled in Ifafa Natal.

James had a son Norman who had a daughter Patricia Norma and a son Cecil who was a jocky.
James settled on a smallholding in Rosetta as Cecil raced in Pietermaritzburg.

Norman passed on and was buried. Looking for Normans date of death and where he was buried?

The latest baptism for a child of theirs that I can see is 22 Nov 1936.

Petronella died 13 Dec 1953. Death cert says "married" so Norman still alive then.

Thank You. I am wondering if Norman did not go to Rhodesia or back to Canada after his wife died?
