From the Death Notice of Richard BOWLES born 10 May 1822 at
Albany District, Richard died at the home of Mr C POULTON of
from the wounds he sustained at Woest Hill during the Eighth Frontier War by
a gang of Amaxhosa and Hottentot raiders armed with muskets and assegais.

HOWARD at St. George's Anglican Church, Grahamstown. So something isn't
Again, I started this email on the 28th Oct and have just found it in my
Drafts folder. I was still looking at things, but have now lost the plot!!
