Newpaper Cuttings: Last of the Settlers

Newspaper cuttings from the Eastern Cape. Newspaper unknown. 4 September 1967


Rosa Mary PIKE (Mrs CAWOOD) was born on July 13, 1815, at Nottingham and came to South Africa with her parents, William and Mary PIKE in the ship, Albury. She, too, died in 1906, and was survived by her settler brother, Elijah PIKE of Clumber. Elijah died in August the following year at the age of 94 years. Probably the very last of the band of British settlers were Mrs. Sarah BATES, of Uitenhage, Mrs. John LAKE, Mrs. Mary PAINTER, Mr. John Lowne FROST and a man named PALMER. Mrs. Sarah BATES died at her home in Durban Street, Uitenhage during April, 1907, in her 92nd year. Unfortunately the death notice did not give her maiden name. Mrs. John LAKE of Somerset East died in Durban in September in her 98th year. She had been a Miss GRIFFIN, and since she emigrated in the Chapman, she was probably the daughter of Mr. Thomas GRIFFIN and his wife Sarah.
