The details of Elizabeth Hosking being an orphan and coming from Redruth
to South Africa fits the handed down information from family members.
Another part of this information is that her few close relatives went to
Amerce leaving her alone in Cornwall so she accepted an invitation to stay
with relatives in South Africa. Henry Hosking was the relative and he met
her at the boat when she landed but I cannot trace the connection. His
descendants cannot help me either.
I have tried to find the baptismal records of all members of the family
mentioned as being in Camborne in 1871 and have been unsuccessful.
It has been quite frustrating.
