I was contacted by the SA State Library recently, with some information on some old photos they have. They are photos of ‘Old Colonists’, ie, the first European settlers in SA. The list they spoke of is of women, and among the photos are two photos of ancestors of mine.
The first photo is of Elizabeth Barreau (nee Hamilton). She married Alexander Barreau in 1845.
Elizabeth came from England (Kent) to SA in 1837 with her parents Richard Hamilton and Ann Hamilton (nee Holmes). The second photo is of Ann Hamilton.
The photos were taken in the 1870s.
