Hi Springy
A relation ??? . I'm not home so I dont have much to rifle through , I checked the Forsyth Medal Roll , it only lists a Major R.A.Nesbitt , Medal with Clasp 77-78-79 . No other names on the Roll , which seems a little strange ? scratch scratch .
Sorry Mate .

Morning Mate
Yep my Great Grand father. I know he fought in the Boer War and there are a couple of snippets that point him back to being in Natal in mid 1870s. Quite a soldier of fortune but info is scarce so v=im hopping Mr G etc will be able to help me build up the history. Its a personal crusade for a family member.

HIi Springy
I've heard of Nesbitt's Horse but I dont think it's a unit from the AZW ? , possibly more so one of the Boer Wars ?
I dont have the correct books here so cant have a proper look. Hopefully someone will kick in shortly and help out .

Hi Springbok9

I have had a quick look (at work) but have not found anything yet?

Is Allewell the correct spelling of the name?

Hi Graves
Yes it is, born in I think Sibsey Lincolnshire. If as I believe he fought in the Boer war he would Im sure have been awarded the QSA. He comes from a long line of Georges, his father, grandfather and indeed his eldest son were all called George, other children were Fred and Dorothy.

thanks for the assist.

Hi Springbok9

I have found a Allewell Family from Lincolnshire.

Father (George) Born 1842
Son (George) Born 1870

There are not many Allewell's in Lincolnshire, so could this be the right family.

I will have a better look when I return home.

Hi Frank

Here's the QSA entitlement for Nesbitt's Horse. Looks like WSM Rifles and Marshall's Horse are noted in remarks column.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Did you get any more from 1879 Graves, as iv'e got some Lincolnshire stuff but don't want to duplicate?

Hi Springbok9

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
From the 1871 Census showing George & George Allewell
This adds up with a George being born in Sibsey.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
From the 1881 Census
Now I have a problem with the information you have.
As you see both George's are still in the UK in 1881, so have not gone out to SA!
We now have another son.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
From the 1891 Census
Both George's are still in the UK
Now we another son and now a daughter.

1901 Census Missing !!!!
Where did they go?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Now we have 1911 Census
Father George is back but George son is missing.

I have to ask you Springbok9, are we looking at the correct Allewell family and does this information add up with the information you have.

Frank/Graves

I can top and tail it a bit. First the 1851 census, which shows that the older George's father was William.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And the older George's probate record when he died in 1922.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I asked Frank much the same questions as you Graves - doesn't quite fit with what we know so far - but could be.

Graves/Steve
Yes it is the correct family, but confusing as hell.
Im pretty sure the younger George was in South Africa Late 90,s early 1900's. He served in Cape Town then in the Transvaal. The QSA is his. That would account for him not showing on the 1901 census.
George Senior was running/owned a pub/hostelry in the Nottingham area some time around that period.
There are some strange entries. I do know that a Fred Allewell was born around 1901 with another George slightly after and a Dorothy a couple of years before. But according to the records there was a Fred born in 1888 and that I cant fit in.
Thanks for the effort guys really appreciated

Cheers

Hi Frank

In that case, here's a couple more shots. First the Plough Pub at Elloe, where George (the elder) was publican on 1881 census.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And I'm pretty sure these houses next to the Castle Inn Freiston is where George was Blacksmith/Grocer in the 1861 census.

Steve, Graves, Littlehand, impi

Thanks very much for contributing to the research.
This all started when I came across my family name while researching in the Cape Town archives, not something I expected having been born in the Lake District.
The family tree has now been firmly established as far as my branch is concerned and George Allewell finally placed as my Grandfathers Brother.
Interesting and a touch poignant to know that a relative was in Cape Town long before me.



Cheers
