-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lived at Oak Cottage, Mount Road, Rondebosch (land now part of Westerford School).

Henry John and Lucy Elizabeth (Balne) Hart were witnesses to the marriage of Joseph and Margaret.

Death date and offspring from Helen Cock-Collins' records, obtained from MOOC Archives (will) and other sources.

Will dated 9 Dec 1937. Executor Margaret. Signed by S. Hart. 5 Oct 1940. It appears that Marie, David, Samuel, Agnes, Gladys and Julia are named in the will. However it looks as if Marie and David may have died since the will was made? Actual beneficiaries : Samuel, Agnes, Gladys and Julia (£732.4.1 each). 2 children of Robert Hope - Kenneth William and Claude Robert (£204.9.8 each) 3 children of Thomas (Isabelle, Margaret Thomson (b. Hart), Frank (£150.0.0) Marie Charolotte Cook's daughter (£445.14.3) David Jonathan's son (£445.14.3)

Additional note on the same card: Ground expropriated by Admin Cape of Good Hope, 4 June 1955, £4,900 (for Westerford School) - from whoever was living in the house then...

Burial record shows burial at Plumstead Cemetery, 23 Sept 1940, position 42C.

Personal recollection of Gary Hart, great grandson, from his father, that Joseph died at home at Oak Cottage, Mount Road, Rondebosch. Also that Joseph and Margaret had 13 children.
