While Francis Burgess' Death Notice states that Elizabeth Slade was his last wife, "Suid-Afrikaanse geslagregisters" maintains she was his first and that at the very least Jane was their daughter:
"Richard John Quinton * Nottinghamshire, England c. 1819, a. 1843 t Willowmore 13.11.1891 x George c. 1848 Elizabeth Jane BURGESS from Birmingham t c. 1893 do Francis Burgess and Elizabeth Slade"
More likely, Jane Quinton nee Burgess and Elizabeth Swanepoel nee Burgess are the daughters of a third unknown wife, Francis' first wife who he married in England.
Elizabeth Burgess nee Slade's Death Notice makes no mention of any daughters, only one son, William Slade Burgess.
