About Catherine Slaughter

Catherine Cronk whose family went to South Africa as part of Gurney's Party on the Settler Ship Weymouth.

On the Shoulders of Giants

"Among the 1820 settlers of South Africa, in the group from the English county of Kent, were John Cronk, his wife, Anna Burry, and three children, Mary Ann, John, and Frances. A fourth child, Catherine, age 13, remained in England.

In 1832, Catherine Cronk married a young Kentish tanner, Edward Slaughter. By 1840, Edward and Catherine had followed Catherine’s family to South Africa, where in that year a son, Samuel Nathaniel Slaughter was born to 33 year old Edward and 34 year old Catherine Cronk Slaughter in the little town of Uitenhage, about twenty miles inland from Port Elizabeth. During the next twelve years, three daughters were added to Edward and Catherine’s family. By 1854, the Slaughter family had moved to Port Elizabeth, where Edward worked in a tannery."
