Taken from The Anglo-African Who's Who and Biographical sketch-book (Page 6 of 49):

"Cannell, Cameron Corlett, F.R.G.S., M. R.C.I. of Heatherdene, Bagshot, of Salisbury House, London, E.G., and of the Blenheim, Sunningdale Golf, and other Clubs, was born at Grahamstown, Cape Colony, in 1861, and was educated at Grahamstown and Port Alfred. Mr Cannell was one of the early pioneers of the Rand, where he joined the Johannesburg firm of B.M. Woolan & Co. Coming To England, Mr Cannell took up the London Agency of severeal companies controlled by the Woollan group, and very soon entered his sphere of usefulness, greatly extending interests in the Transvaal and Rhodesia. He is a Director of the Consolidated Rand-Rhodesia Trust, the Bulawayo Estate and Trust, the Elandsfontein Deep, Monastery Diamond Mines, the Euroafrican Corporation, Befast G.M. Co., the Rand Investment Corporation, and the "African Review".

In the early day of the late S.A. War he acted as Hon. Capt., on the H.Q. Staff of the Army Remount Dept. (1899). He is keen on shooting, hunting, and motoring, and married in 1891, Miss Eva Bright.
