BRU-DE-WOLD

Hilmar Theodor Bru-de-Wold is sometimes mistakenly referred to as a Marburg settler, but in fact he had arrived in Natal much earlier, in 1862, when he was in his twenties. Born in Trondheim he grew up on a farm in Orsta, but had been aboard a Norwegian naval training ship as a cadet when, after an argument with the commander, Bru-de-Wold deserted the vessel when it was about to leave Durban. He decided to stay in Natal.
He found employment as a labourer on an Isipingo sugar estate and later married his employer John Bazley's daughter, Sarah, in 1871 (they had three children); he was at that date manager of a coffee estate.
By the time the Norwegian immigrants arrived to settle on the Umzimkulu in 1882, Bru-de-Wold owned his own farm, Eidswold, in the Umzimkulu area and he was able to be of help and guidance to the Marburg settlers.
In 1865, Bru-de-Wold joined the Alexandra Mounted Rifles and at the time of the Anglo-Zulu War 1879 he was Sergeant-Major, getting a mention in dispatches for his services. He received a commission in 1880.
When the Umzimkulu Mounted Rifles was formed in 1884, largely as a measure of protection for the new Norwegian population in Alfred County, Bru-de-Wold, by that time holding the rank of Captain, became the unit's first (and only) commanding officer.

In 1888, all the volunteer coastal units amalgamated to form the Natal Mounted Rifles, and Bru-de-Wold was appointed second-in-command, as Major. In 1894, the NMR was divided into two corps - NMR and Border Mounted Rifles - and Bru-de-Wold became first commanding officer of the BMR.
His first wife Sarah died in 1892, and he married a daughter of J D Shuter.
When he became District Adjutant for Southern Natal in 1895, he had to resign from the Regiment, but during the Anglo-Boer War served on Col W Royston's staff during the Siege of Ladysmith. Bru-de-Wold was badly wounded in the jaw by shrapnel and reportedly replied to enquiries from his men 'Thanks, boys, I feel damned sick but I would feel much better if I could just speak one good swear, instead of only thinking one or two, at that swine who fired that shell at me'.
For his service during 1899-1902 he was commended by General Sir George White and awarded the C.M.G.
In 1902 after the war he was promoted to Colonel and became Commandant of Natal Volunteers, in which post he served during the 1906 Rebellion. He was awarded the D.S.O. for his part in this campaign.
He retired in 1907, died at Port Shepstone in 1912 and was buried at St Patrick's Church, Umzinto. His only son was KIA at Delville Wood, 1916.
Bru-de-Wold's Zulu name was uWolo.

Because of my interest in the Natal Police, I found that two of Bru-de-Wold's children had links with this force.

His only son, Thorkell Waltham, joined the Natal Police in 1898 and , like his father, he was besieged in Ladysmith. (I have his QSA Medal with 'Defence of Ladysmith' clasp.) He later became a land surveyor and during the 1906 Rebellion he was a Captain in the Mapping Detachment. At the start of World War I he enlisted in Enslin's Horse and served as a Sergeant during the Rebellion in South Africa and later in German South West Africa. He then joined the South African Infantry for service in Europe. He was a 2nd Lieutenant when he was killed in action at Delville Wood during the Battle of the Somme in July 1916. He never married and in South Africa the family name died with him.

T W Bru-de-Wold's sister, Jane Bernadine, was listed as his next-of-kin when he enlisted in World War I, and she was also the heir to his estate. Jane married Sergeant (later Sub-Inspector) A H Borgnis of the Natal Police. After her husband retired, the childless couple settled in Umkomaas on the Natal South Coast, where Jane died in 1939.

I like the way these threads develop. One name is posted and the rest of history follows. Well done to all concerned.

Hi All,
What a splendid job was done in unravelling this one, Thanks.
It is a pity that this family died out because they were the history and the legend.
