About Grace Thomas Owen

Grandmother Grace Thomas Owen Burnell came to South Africa  as  a Registered SRN U.K.   She spent a great deal of her years in Cape Town as a District Nurse & Midwife'  delivering many  babies to  the poor and needy, as well as those  of means.    She  also  Nursed alongside of the Drs and other Nurses during the Plague which hit Cape Town in the early 1900's - confining her own family to their home during this period.  She was a remarkably strong woman in characterr and did her best to ensure that her famiy of four were well educated at good schools, ie  he son Charles Burnell was educated at St. Georges Grammer School, and her daughters went to the  sister school  in the Gardens Cape Town.   She also  saved and was able to purchase  properties - a house in Ramsay Road, Green Point, together with plots of  land at Fish Hoek, St. James, Sunnynoek, and also a plot in Glengarriff Road, Three Anchor Bay, Cape Town   :   She also took her family back to the UK  on   4 occasions by ship,  at various stages of their growing up years in order for them to meet  their relatives in England.  Quite an   amazing feat, I only wish I could have met her.  (Note written by her Grandaughter Heather Marsh / Burnell Mabel Burnell's daughter. 28th March, 2013
