My mother's father was also George but I do not know the name of her mother. I believe that he could be a descendant of Bishop Hugh Latimer who was burnt at the stake in Oxford England for heresy. Their children were Enid, Dorothy, Florence (Flo), George, Norman and my mother Lola.
Many English speaking families in South Africa have their roots in the 1820 Settlers but neither the Kirbys nor the Lattimers were among them and must have left Britain at a later stage.
