James Kirby I have only just begun research into my family and have at this point in time very little infomation except the following: My paternal grandfather was George Alfred Kirby and he married Gertrude Ferreira in South Africa in the late 1800s. They had three sons ... Clarence who died in the 1940s after his appendix burst, Aubrey (Dick) and my father Vernon (Vic) James. Clarence married Vera (surname unknown to me) and they had a daughter Maureen. Aubrey married Kay (surname also unknown) who was a nurse and my father married Lola Doreen Lattimer.
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.
