About Antoni Christoffel Steyn

A C Steyn was born in Kroonstad, but was a British subject. When he died in 1965 he was a farmer and an old age pensioner. He had been married in community of property to his wife, whom he had married in Enkeldoorn, Rhodesia in 1916. She had a son of her own Frederick Karel (Charl) Hefer Steyn, who is omitted from the death notice drawn up by Antonie Christoffel Steyn the son of the deceased. He left a will and left movable property not amounting to more than 2000 pounds, but no immovable property. And yet the last place of residence is given as Cashel, Melsetter District , which sounds like a farm? In the instructions on the form, children from different marriages are meant to be listed separately. -------------------- Antoni was on the "Henry - Steyn Trek" of 1895 to Melsetter district in Southern Rhodesia. He lived all his life on Summer vale farm (Penridge) Cashel near Umtali (Mutare) The area is now Government Forestry area, most of the buildings on the other farms have been destroyed but the homestead on Summer vale appears to be still in use [ 19°37'27.00"S 32°49'51.61"E ] Google Earth
