I have no experience in genealogy and am very keen to learn more about my origins.I would like to know if anyone expert / other Heathcote knows where the South African chain of Heathcotes began.I assume that the first South African Heathcote came from the UK. The English involvement in SA started around 1795 (when the Dutch left SA). We also had a large influx of British settlers during the 1820's. Another possibility is the Anglo Boer War,from 1899 to 1902.Does anyone know anything? your help would be greatly appreciated.
