Can any of you South Africans let me know if you have ever come across a husband and wife surnamed Broomhead, living in Natal (or possibly the Cape) in January 1879, with perhaps a connection to the British Army - either in the way of boarding army wives and children or running a hostel/hotel for them or in the nature of a local church minister & his wife or responsible concerned citizens dealing with army families' welfare in some way.
All my own searches in docs and newspapers and an admittedly limited number of settler/immigration websites thus far have come to naught and I think I'd benefit from some local knowledge.
All help gratefully received and will be acknowledged.

Frank Broomhead connected with Government service in the Transvaal around 1896

J Broomhead farmed on the Natal Free State Border, probably close to Ladysmith in 1901.

Unfortunatly both of the those files are 'up country' and out of my reach

Thanks. I think my Broomheads are going to be located in PMB, Durban or KWT in 1879 or even Cape Town - near a barracks. The later 1896 and 1901 dates mean it could be them in a later existence or it could be their son.
When you say 'up country', I'm not sure where you live so I'm not sure where you mean the relevant files are located. Do you mean coastal direction or inland?

I'm in Cape Town. The first two references are located in the Transvaal and Free State. I can have a look at the archives at some point for Margaret. The main Barrack area way back then was Wynberg.

PS have a look under my name, shows my location. Very Happy

Some more circumstantial evidence for the name and location. Southampton outgoing passenger list Jan 1891, Mr Broomhead destination Cape Town returning February age 35. Mr G Broomhead incoming Southampton from Cape Town Feb 1912. Finally, Private 4937 J Broomhead Natal Field Force died of wounds Ladysmith 13 Dec 1899. The later with the Rifle Brigade so I suspect not South African.

For what it's worth.

This might prove useful for researching people. Original Church registers Natal. You can also go back a level to get other SA locations.

Thanks. Wynberg might be a possibility.
I didn't think of looking for your location under your name!!
Rusteze
The 1891 Broomhead is a bit late and is travelling out and back from the UK - a bit of a long shot!
Yes, I agree with you that the 1899 Broomhead would not be my man.
Thanks for the link - I'll check it out.

Julian,

Sorry I am a little late with this. I see there was an Arthur Broomhead, Number 35358, Pte, Cape Colony Cyclists Corps who served during 1899-1902 War. His previous unit had been Uitenhage Volunteer Rifles, no rank, but Number 697. Also served with Scott's Railway Guards, again no rank, but Number 6767. There were a total of eight Broomheads' who served in 1899-1902 War, but he was the only one not from mainland UK. Do not know if this helps at all? I have a good friend, Ken Broomhead from Stockport, who does a little genealogy.

Regards

Jim

Thanks anyway but it really needs to be 1879 - I think anyone alive then would have been too old to serve in the 2nd Boer War so it can't be the same person though he might come from the same family.
