  • Notes 
    • Later moved to Kingwilliamstown, then to Kimberley, sold his share, half of what became the Kimberley Diamond mines (for 3,000 pounds) moved to Bechuanaland Protectorate and pioneered the opening of a small settlement at Papani. Purchased several farms and stocked them with 4,000 head of cattle. The cattle industry was ruined in 1896-97 when rinderpest swept through the B.P.
