I have a Millie Louisa SEFTON, b. 21 May 1854 on the Island of St. Helena. Her parents were James Martin SEFTON, and Elizabeth HUBBARD SEFTON, both born on the Island as well.
Millie was a School Teacher at Hutt's Gate, St. Helena. She left St. Helena in 1890 with her widowed mother, her married sister Abby PURVIS, and family.
She taught at a Mission School in Rondebosch, and lived in Woodstock, Cape Town. She may have later gone into nursing. She is one of my brick walls.

Hi There- how/where would I be able to find a list of people who left
the island between 1870-1900? I am looking for any Louisa's (first or
second names) who left the island to come to Cape Town around this
time. My great-great-grandmother was Louisa Solomons and she was from
St Helena Island-but we can't seem to find any details on her maiden
surname or family-she married
John Solomons in Cape Town who was a
labourer. They had 4 children: Martha, Harriet, David and John. John
(my great-grandfather) was the youngest born in 1901. Thanx-Crystal
