Re: Weston Families
- 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.

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

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.
