Yes.

If that is the right family in 1881 then I can't find a marriage that fits.

Deceased estate notice says born London but that could include nearby counties.

If that is the right family in 1881 then perhaps some of Ethel's siblings also ended up in South Africa.

No real help. A marriage for a William John Smith but no parents listed.
