James Brelsford in South Africa


Active member
Hello everyone,

I’m looking for information about James Brelsford born 1899 in Rhayader, Wales. I have all the 1901 and 1911 census information. I’m interested to discover who he married and if there were children.

My understanding is that he left England for South Africa, (I don’t have a date) and all I have is an incoming passenger list for Southampton from Durban in 1953 that names James aged 53 and wife Florence Brelsford aged 60. They each gave a proposed address and I am familiar with the address in Wales that James gave.

I’d like to know if James and Florence (surname unknown) married in SA or in the UK and if they had children either in SA or the UK.

Hoping someone can help. I've been searching for James for ages.

Thank you
