      Crystal, Not sure if this will help but a few years ago I looked up all the St HelenaSolomons’in the India Office library. They are as shown below.  The wording is exactly as written on the card and I have no further information.


      You should also check out this website




      There was also a book published called ‘Saul Solomon - The Member for Capetown  not sure if there is any relation. The book is available on www.abebooks.com for under $10


      Hope this helps

      i am trying to trace details/family of my great-great grandparents who
      came to
      Cape Town from st helena island late 1800's. their names were
      john and louisa solomons.some of their children were named:
      martha,harriet,john, richard, david.  there was also a hanna and maria-
      but we not sure if they were siblings or children of martha. john (my
      great-grandfather) was born in
      cape town in 1901-his sister martha (one
      of the eldest) was born on st helena island. my mother vaguely
      remembers my great-grandfather telling her that his name was spelt
      different-either his first name John could be Jan/Jon or surname was
      spelt different Solomons could have been Semolon/Somolon-if any of this
      rings a bell-please let me know-Thanx-Crystal Williams-I can also be
      mailed at crystal@...
