John Campbell Taylor and family


Active member
Near Durban
My great grandfather John Campbell Taylor and family left Scotland for South Africa. Have yet to find the ship they left on, can any one help please?
This is the family
John Campbell Taylor b. 1874 Saltcoats - Occ. dynamite worker
Mary Law Stevely b. 1877 Saltcoats
James Stevely Taylor b. 1899 Saltcoats - son
Archibald Taylor b. 1901 Saltcoats -son
Duncan Tayor b. 1902 Saltcoats -son

It is possible that John Campbell Taylor left with out his family and they joined him later.

A question, I have been looking at the passenger lists for people leaving Southampton. What other places would people leave the UK from? And would they take a round about route, like to America before going to South Africa? Or would it be a direct route?
