-------------------- Thomas Shone and Ann Hiscock weren't married but they had 2 children. This was after the death of Thomas's wife Sarah.

Ann (nee HUNT) and James HISCOCK were living apart at the time of her affair with Thomas SHONE. It seems it started with him helping her with things on the farm, making shoes for her children and she would mend or wash his clothes in return. In his diaries, he would make a special mark whenever he stayed the night with her!! After his death the diaries were with Henry and Caroline, because Thomas had moved with them to Kaffraria. They (diaries) were later divided up among Henry's children and somewhere along the line one or more notebooks were destroyed (either by Caroline who disapproved of the affair (and the illegitimate in-laws?), or by another descendant whose principles were offended). John S SHONE later traced and retrieved the various surviving copies and his wife Heather typed them out. Penny Silva used these transcripts as the basis of her thesis and for the publication of The JOurnals of Thomas Shone (in the Grahamstown series).

The 2 illegitimate children were William (Billy) SHONE born 15.11.1840 (he didn't marry and he was possibly 'simple-minded') Sarah Elizabeth SHONE born 4.3.1844 married Charles WEST.
