Scope and Content

The following series are arranged in chronological order according to the first deed in each one. Documents which do not fit into a logical category are listed chronologically at B1/5/1D.

Items B1/5/1D/15-18, 20; 17D/1-8; 19D/1-5 and 21D/1-2 were originally in one bundle but do not appear to be related.

B1/5/17D, 19D, 21D and 24D concern properties in Potchefstroom and Mafeking in South Africa. The properties are frequently referred to as erf/ erven which can translate as property/ premises or farm yard. Many of the deeds are in Dutch, which has been indicated in the relevant entries.
