Thanks for that item.
A bit of background about the mark my line has left on the planet. My g-father John, his two brothers Samson and Tom, and sister Mary (all descendants of Samson Banfield - Uny Lelant/St Ives, Cornwall) emigrated from Liverpool to South Africa at various times between 1910 and 1915. They settled in Durban on the East Coast.G-uncle Samson was one of the first residential landowners in a new suburb, Puntans Hill, that was developed shortly after they arrived. I am not certain how he achieved it, but one of the streets in this neighbourhood was named after him - Banfield Crescent. Perhaps he had other business dealings with (I think) Major Puntan who was the developer who offered him this perk. Will try to trace the storey from other family members.
