Old Colonists of the Cape Colony and Orange River Colony.

This collector’s item is an important retrospective biographical biography of 1200 prominent men in South Africa from a rising generation in the faculties of Law, Religion, Science, Art, Sport and Commerce, while many of the most memorable deceased men also find a place in these pages. We hope that these simple and un-ambiguous sketches my prove both interesting and useful to family historian and genealogists and among those have either personal, official or commercial associations with the Cape Colony.
