There were obviously also issues about the amount of pension he received which is interesting given what he left in his estate.

George Lamond death certificate: Civil registration (deaths), Natal, 1863-1923 1911 Film # 007736099 image 255

George Lamond, aged 78, a pensioner of 270 Loop St. He had suffered acute gastritis. The death certificate stated he left no property. This was born out by the death notice and probate documents below.

Familysearch Natal Deceased estates, 1846-1950 V. 42/no. 149-251 1911 V. 43/no. 18-151 1911 Film # 007866859 Image 1191

The death notice states he was 78 years and 9 months old, of Scotch descent and born in Gibraltar. It states he married his first wife in community of property and his second by ante nuptial contract. It states he left no moveable or immoveable property and that the estimated gross value of the estate is 708 pounds. The death notice lists his children as follows:

From his first marriage to Barbara Langerman: Guy Bouverie Lamond, Catherine Caroline Bemister, Johanna Jackson, Sophia Maud Sowden

From his second marriage" Hugh Stewart Esme Lamond, Sholto Cloudesley Lamond, Shafto Errol Lamond, Sybil Graham Morton Lamond (minor) 15.1.1892, Marjorie Katherine Lamond (minor) 20.10.1893, Esme Monica Sydney (minor) 16.1.1896

The death notice was signed by his wife Nellie

In his will dated 12 July 1899 he wills everything to his second wife, appoints her as executrix and guardian of their minor children.

The information from the book above that he had 10 children by his first wife Barbara may need more investigation. They were married in February 1856, just a few months before the birth of his first son. She died in June 1862 and her death notice (signed when probate occurred in 1891/2) clearly states there were four minor children when she died. I have found no references to other children in death notice or burials in the churches they may have attended. The children were born fairly close together and it seems almost impossible that another six could have been born during this marriage. Possibly the records of children from his first and second wives were blurred as it seems probable that he could have had at least 10 children with his second wife. Melissa Langerman
