About Emma Louisa Frances Andrews (Povey)

There is a record of an Emma Povey of the correct age arriving in 1859.

Povey, Emma 18 House servant Mrs Wiley,Roodebloem,CT Hampshire Burlington July 59

The Cape and Natal News 1862 1 January - June reported the marriage in Fort Beaufort between William Andrews jnr of Kroome and Emma Louisa Frances Povey youngest daughter of the late Alfred Povey of Southhampton. This ties in with Permit R573/P540 Aided Immigration from Britian to SA 1857 to 1867 which permitted an Emma Povey aged 18 years to travel from Hampshire to South Africa on the ship 'Burlington' to become a house servant to Mrs Wiley of Roodebloem, Cape Town in July 1859. It is not recorded how she came to Fort Beaufort but at her wedding her address is given as Yellowwoods..

Her English birth certificate identifies her parents as Alfred and Frances (nee Foot) Povey who lived in Southhampton.

In the 1841 English Census her parents, Alfred and Frances and two sons, Henry and Alfred, lived in St John's Buildings, Southhampton, with 44 others. This appears to have been a workhouse. Ten years later in the 1851 Census Emma and an older sister, Fanny, were living in the same place with their mother who was remarried to Edward Legg. It seems that in the interim her father had died and also her three small brothers, two Alfred Johns and one Henry Edward. She now also had a half sister Caroline Legg.

She was only 37 when she died having given birth to 11 children. Violet Virginia, one of her youngest children was only about 5 when her mother died. She is buried on the farm Endwell.
