      I see that there has been some more recent activity on the site, including some intriguing mentions of schools run by Mrs Weston and Henry Weston. I am thus re-posting an earlier message in the hope that that some of you might be able to help.

      I am looking for some assistance in tracing my g-grandfather George Weston who married Annie Sim, nee Bagley in 1882 in St John's Church on the Island. He and his children (my grandmother plus her siblings) came to Cape Town in about 1891,but I am looking to connect George - born about 1857 or 1859 to the previous Westons on the Island. Charles Weston was Marshall and Jailer around 1821 at the time of Napoleon's imprisonment and I have traced his descendants for 2 more generations, but which of his descendants was George Weston's father I cannot
      establish at present.

      Hi Chris I have a record of a Joseph Weston in 1823 which is around the time you are asking for. It may not be of any help but he is given as the owner of my

        Hi Chris
        I have a record of a Joseph Weston in 1823 which is around the time you are asking for. It may not be of any help but he is given as the owner of my forebear, William Smith, a slave who was married in St James Church on the island.

        I am going to the island in April next year, leaving from Cape Town, to follow up on a dream of mine, to see where my family came from

          Frederick Samuel George was born on September 29, 1854 and his parents where listed on his death certificate in Providence, Rhode Island as Jacob and Catherine (I assume George was their surname).  I believe these were people of color, mixed mulatto, etc.  Frederick Samuel George immigrated to the US about 1870 and settled in Providence, Rhode Island where he married a woman named Robie Eldridge.  Frederick died May 13, 1919 in Providence, Rhode Island.  I have a copy of his death certificate certified from the Rhode Island State Archives. 
           
          I am looking to see if I can find a marriage of his parents, and any siblings possibly born to a Jacob and Catherine.  I'm unfamiliar as to any census records that may have been taken on the island and would like some help from the list or recommendations on ships' records, immigration records, etc. to help me complete this puzzle.  Thank you.

            Hi Chris
            In going through the archives I came across your 2009 query. Not sure if you have found George Ormby Weston b 28 Mar 1812 who married Clarissa Penelope Seal 25 Apr 1860. George was son of Charles and Sarah Weston and had a brother Henry Yates Weston who married Sarah Margaret Alexander on 17 Dec 1831. I am linked to their sister Julia b 3 Apr 1806 who married george Whalley Melliss 13 may 1827.

                  On line there is a book by Chaplin that covers a St Helena Who's Who during the time of Napoleon.  In the book there is a list of marriage and the Weston - Yates marriage is included and stated as having occurred in 1803.
