It is believed that Trooper Kincade was the last survivor of the terrible Isandlwana massacre to die. He passed away in Addington Hospital, Durban, aged nearly 80.

"The Glamour and Tragedy of the Zulu War" by WH Clements, Trooper Charles Montague Sparks tells how he met Kincade sitting on the bank of a river after the Isandlwana Battle with his field boots in hand. He asked Kincade if he did not realise the danger he was in from the Zulus who were in hot pursuit. Kincade's replies were incoherent as if he either did not know or realise his peril or was dazed from the fight for his life in the river, where he too had lost his horse. Kincade then found a horse in the neighbourhood that had managed to swim across and land on the bank minus its rider. Sparks and Kincade then mounted horses and rode as fast as possible to the town of Helpmekaar. Two days later Kincade’s name was posted at the Helpmekaar Base Camp as a known survivor. At that stage the British thought that only 44 men had survived. That figure later grew to 55.

PostSubject: Update on Trooper Kincade   Trooper Robert J Kincade EmptySun Mar 21, 2010 1:15 am

We have found a copy of the book by Clement, Glamour and Tragedy of the Zulu War, it's on its way from a bookshop in the UK. We've also gotten a link to some sources in South Africa, and we're pursuing that to gather additional information.

We're still amazed at all of this. My father is a collector of miniature lead soldiers and has been for most of his life (he turns 80 this year). Thirty years ago, he wrote a set of British Colonial wargame rules called "The Sword and The Flame", one of the periods featured in the set is of the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. These rules are still selling like crazy global-wide. As a child, my father took me and my sister to see "Zulu" for the first time in 1963 at the Carolina Theatre in Greensboro North Carolina (where we're originally from). So call this kismet, serendipity, fate, or genetic (smile)...whatever, we are thoroughly enjoying it all and will keep this board posted.

Have a great day/evening.

Ancestor Trooper Robert Kincade

Hello....been awhile since I've posted about our ancestor who was a survivor of the Battle of Isandlwana, he was with the Natal Mounted Police, Trooper Robert Kincade. Our research about him is progressing thanks in part to ancestry.com Trooper Kincade also fought in the second Boer War. We've purchased some books on the Zulu War, notably one by author Ian Knight. While we continue to do research (fascinating thusfar), we're hoping to track down a photo of Trooper Kincade. We're sure there is one out there, it's just a matter of FINDING it.

Thanks for the wonderful posts on this forum, LOTS of information to take in, and the vintage photos are just brilliant!

Can you confirm that his name was only Robert? Did he have a second name? Tarant for instance?
Also do you have his date of death?

Hello,

WOW, that was quick. His full name was Robert James Montague Kincade, we have a file on him and I can't seem to find the short obituary that my sister printed off. He died in Durbai (sp?) South Africa somewhere between 1938 and 1940.

Here's the link about the medal he won: http://hendrik.atspace.com/hall/Hal-Kincade.html

Thanks so much!

Hi All
Can't help with Kincaide other then his DoD being 1935.
However another interesting one in Durban is
Richard Wyatt Vause Natal Native Horse and Isandlwana survivour, Died 1926, and is buried in St Thomas Church Cemetery Durban.

Hello Rai,

Believe me, you've helped enormously by giving us Kincade's DoD as 1935. My sister may be able to find more information on him at ancestry.com since we now have a DoD. Thank you so much!

Hello,

I wish we knew where Trooper Kincade's final resting place is, he was, indeed, at the Addington Hospital when he died. He was 80 years old. If by 100% luck you find it, it would be just fantastic if you'd take a photo and post it here for ALL to see.

Thanks if advance for your efforts!

"MASSACRE HERO DEAD DURBAN, Eng., U.R) A man believed to be the last, survivor of the Isandhlwana massacre of British soldiers during the Zulu War in 1879, died in Addington Hospital here. He was Robert J. M. Kincade."

Haven't got time to read the whole thread. Did we know he passed away Addington Hospital. Does that narrow it down?

A good start would be his religion. Sad to say that if its Catholic there were a lot of double burials that took place over the years at Emmanuels St Josephs and West street cemeteries. John Cantwells grave was lost as a result of that.
Protestant , Jewish COE there is a better chance.

If you have time in Durban go to the Killie Campbell Museum reading room. They have the Mercury and Witness on microfilm so getting to the 1935 ( and further back ) should be pretty easy. Once you can locate those dates of burial and potential grave yards the staff there will certainly be of huge help.
Must warn you though once you get stuck into those archives you get hooked ! Be prepared to spend a long time discovering things. You need to study mo You need to study mo You need to study mo You need to study mo You need to study mo Salute

Hi Springy
Very Happy Yes I know what you mean , I was hoping to get there , but I want to go to the Durban Natural History museum and go through their AZW Files , as I went there last year and ran out of time , which unfortunately will happen again , I only have two days in Durban , and I want to spend a day in and out of the oldish book shops as well , I might'nt even get the time to chase up Sparks , Kincade & Vause . The more I can find out where they are buried , before I get there , will give me more time to actually locate their resting places .

Hi Springy
I doubt the missus will go for that , as this trip is 16 days as it is ! . I need the couple days in Durban to recover from the flight , I can never sleep on planes , it takes about 27 hrs to get to Durban , via Dubai , which is the best way to go . I've emailed Ken Gillings , hopefully , he may know their whereabouts . agree

unfortunately for them they can add 4 hrs , I remember talking to someone last year on the flight , and they said the flight originated in NZ , you have no idea how glad I was that I wasnt coming from NZ ! .

Littlehand you posted Sparks is buried in Durban , how do you know this , or are you assuming he is , because he died there ? .
Unless , of course , I've missed something scratch

Thanks Graves , I may need to pull out Clements tomorrow and look through it . I've just sent an email to St Thomas Church in Durban , asking if they know of the grave of Richard Wyatt Vause , and those of Kincade & Sparks , it would be to much to believe I'll get the right answers , let alone an answer I expect No Suspect Suspect I think there are several cemeteries in Durban , so I doubt , I'll be so lucky , as to have the three of them in the one place . Miracles to happen ! Shocked Shocked Very Happy

Hi 90th,
As many of the NMP were interred with their OC in the NMP  section of the Commercial Road Cemetery in Pietermaritzburg, you may save boot leather by looking there first. 
Other possibilities in Durban are ;
Stellawood
Old Fort
St Thomas Road.

regards

barry

PS :Fort Napier in the capital is an unlikely option

Hi Barry
I have a feeling Stellawood was set up for the WW1 men and later WW2. Commercial Rd would be good bet though.

Cheers

Hi Springy
Very Happy  Yes I know what you mean , I was hoping to get there , but I want to go to the Durban Natural History museum and go through their AZW Files , as I went there last year and ran out of time , which unfortunately will happen again , I only have two days in Durban , and I want to spend a day in and out of the oldish book shops as well , I might'nt even get the time to chase up Sparks , Kincade & Vause . The more I can find out where they are buried , before I get there , will give me more time to actually locate their resting places .
90th  Shocked


How nice it would be to have the ability to 'click my heels' like Dorothy did in "The Wizard of Oz" and say, "there's no place like Durban, there's no place like Durban".....and, VOILA, I'd be there!! Alas, that's not the case. I'll feel like I've WON the VC if the resting places of Sparks, Kincade & Vause are found by you chaps...thank you so much!

Have a pleasant day/evening everyone!!

Dad's family is Irish, they are Protestant who immigrated into Ireland from Scotland. We don't know about Trooper Kincade.

Hi All,
If all else fails in finding the graves, the hard way, it is suggested that you make contact with Mr Steve Watt in Pietermaritzburg, who will tell you which of his published Natal grave directories to consult for the information.

Robert Kinkade also appears on the Queen's South Africa Medal roll (Boer War) as a Constable Guard, Natal Police, with clasp "Natal".
You will find it on Ancestry.

Thank you one and all for your quick and excellent help . I've contacted St Thomas Church about Vause , from Tim's post , it seems , the grave will most likely be known , by those at the Church , which is a bonus , I also asked them about Sparks & Kincade , it will be to good to be true if the three are in the one cemetery ! . Again , Thanks to all who have tried to help , much appreciated . Very Happy

I've heard back from St Thomas Church in Durban , they don't know the whereabouts of R.W.Vause's grave location. They dont have a record of Sparks or Kincade either . They have kindly passed along my plea for help to another , who , is a well versed in the geneology of Durban , fingers crossed Salute Very Happy .

Oh my gosh, this is great to read. Another relative is trying to find information about an 'ancestor' too. Imagine being a great,great,great niece of a survivor of Isandlwana. And Claire, the relative, was lucky in that a photo of Trooper Sparks was, indeed, found. Aside from the obvious fact that my sister and I are related to Trooper Kincade via our father's mother's family....that's as far as we've gotten thus far. Sis and I may be a great,great,great niece too. Who knows?! Our best to Trooper Sparks' great,great,great niece, Claire.
