      Hi Miranda,
      Louisa Broadway (born 1808) is an ancestor of mine. She and Henry Broadway had 11 children, the last of whom (Alice Eleanor Alexander 1852,)was my relative. Her first child, Maud Mary Mitchell (born 1872) was my Grand-mother.
      I've just joined the Group and am finding my way through the maze of names and connections. It's so exciting!
      Unfortunately I don't have any information about Caleb and can't add to any of your facts. However, I'm writing to you as I'm excited to "meet" my distant relative.
      I shall certainly be in touch if I have anything to add to your data. If you have anything to share with me I would love to hear from you.
      Regards,
      Gillian

        Hi Gillian

        Margaret Jane Broadway (1826, St Helena - 1911, Cape Town) daughter of Capt. Henry Broadway and Eliza Cole was my 3rd great grandmother and married John Stavely Ware in 1848.

        I am also a descendant of the Alexander family as Margaret Maria Alexander (1822, St Helena - 1903, London) was also my 3rd great grandmother who married the Hon. Thomas Edmund Fowler in 1849 (1823, St Helena - 1900, St Helena).

        I do not seem to have Alice eleanor Alexander listed as one of Henry Broadway's daughters...are you abel to elaborate a little more.

        I have done a fair amount of reserahc on these families but also have nothing beyond Caleb Broadway.

        You can contact me off list should you wish at kevin.autopilot@....

        Best wishes

            Louisa Broadway (1808 - 1887) was the daughter of Henry Broadway. Louisa married Frederick Augustus Alexander (1811 - 1863) on 11 Dec 1832 and Alice Eleanor Alexander (1852) was their 11th child.
            I hope that information makes everything a bit clearer!

              Hi Miranda
              Frederick Augustus Alexander is my ancestor. I have written a book on the Alexander family on St Helena - you may be interested in my book, which can be previewed, and bought online at http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2268357
               Alice Eleanor Alexander born St Helena 17.05.1852, and married William Mitchell.
              In my book is a picture of Coffee Grove where Alice was born.

                Searching for information about Photographer W. O. Broadway I came across your entry. 
                Many family's left StHelena in 1834 when the British government took over the running of the island, If anyone knows who was W.O.Broadways family According to B.Grant 1883 his business was well described 
                 On the right of this and adjoining the Hussey School is the commodious School of the Benevolent Society erected in 1865, in a line with which are the new Poor House and Lunatic Asylum and the Commissariat stables. Above these is a roofless building called Parade Cottage, formerly the residence of the Commanding Officers of the late St. Helena Regiment, but now converted into a slaughter house, with a date palm in front, and a fine

                tamarind and margossa trees at the left of it. Adjoining this building is the residence and garden of the Photographer, Mr. W. O. BROADWAY. Part of this garden was washed away by the destructive flood of 1878. Here are to be seen two cocoanut trees, a cypress, eucalyptus, mimosa, loquat, pomegranate, fig, plantain, guava, and cotton trees, and neat little flower beds ; and opposite, plantain, margossa, banyan and thorn trees. The Tourist will notice, a few yards above this house, a vine trailing along the hillside ; this is the cactus (night-blooming cereus,) which presents a pleasing sight when in bloom, its handsome, bell-shaped flowers looking extremely beautiful on moonlit evenings and in the early morn ; but after 8 a.m. they fade away. 

                Could anyone tell me where this is?

                  As far as I can tell, Mr. Broadway’s house was/is on Side Path, about six or seven buildings up from where it joins Napoleon Street, on the right hand side going towards Longwood.  The Hussey School was established in 1866 and is noted as being next to the Benevolent Society School at the time.  Jackson also refers to a house called “Varney’s”, owned by Broadway, but this is almost certainly another property altogether.  There is another house, as you may already know, called “Broadway House” in Main Street, Jamestown.

                        there was a comment recently about the Broadway family, wherein there was apparently no record of Broadways before 1877.  The 1825 list of inhabitants of St Helena has two Broadways listed.  they are Ann Broadway, a widow & George who is "Clerk to the register master"   The 1829 list includes Capt. Henry, invalid.  In 1832, George is listed as Company's Clerk.

                            Arnold Chaplin wrote a book about the people on St Helena in the time of Napoleon.  Included are a couple of pages of marriages.  Here are a few that include some of the names above.  The book was written some time later, about 1914, so it might have errors, but the preamble indicated it came from records at the India Office in London.


                            It says:

                                Henry Broadway married Eliza Torbett in 1808

                                John Barnes married Mrs. Seale in 1807

                                G W Janish married Anne Seale in 1823.
