Re: Hassett's in South Africa
Hello, I am interested that you mention the name Harmsworth. One aunt of my great grandfather, George WPK Pheasant, married a Mr Robert Harmsworth. They lived in and around the Natal area around the Boer War time, my g-grandfather fought in the Boer War in his late teens/ early twenties. He married Dorothy Bell in Drillshed Church Pietermaritzburg and they left for NZ around 1903. But the aunts stayed in SA I think although they may have made a trip to NZ. It could have been Sarah Elizabeth Pheasant who married Robert HarmsworthI think. I will look it up if you think there may be a connection with some of their descendants.
Thanks very much
