Hi All,
The names given by the Zulus to  this illustrious Natal family and the meanings, will be of some interest and also amusement;

Henrique :  Gabuza a warrior who attacks with slashing, thrusting upper cuts like a fighting bull, but was none of these who in nature being in a gentle inoffensive man.

William  : Unsonkonsokwana ; the tall thin and stately one.

Offy : Mhlakuvana ,  the little castor oil plant, forever going of pop like the seeds of this plant when expelled on ripening  from the plant.

Alice : Ntombhazi, after Ntombhazi the mother of the Nxumalo Zulu chief, Zwide.

Arthur : Ummango a long steep incline , meaning that he was a man of determination, prepared to meet and overcome any difficulty. Ntabeni, or hill has a similar meaning.

Florence : Nozinyathi, or "Miss Buffalo", because of her plumpness she was like a young buffalo cow.

Walter :Khanda, the man with brains

regards

Barry,

Whilst we are on the subject of Zulu names, I have a meeting with the great-great-grandson of Sobantu this coming week.

Hi John,
Nice hearing from you.
Most interesting , I trust you are referring to the Colenso family here and "Galloping Jack's" progeny?
Where are you going to meet?

regards

Barry,

It is the Bishop's descendant, and appropriately enough we are meeting outside Lambeth Palace.

I am returning some Colenso correspondence to the family, which will then be donated to the Library of Rhodes College, Oxford where there is a Colenso archive.

Regards,

John Y.
