Hi Peter,
Sorry it has taken some time to reply.
I have just returned from Wintering in the UK.
I cannot trace my "dellis" side beyond 1890 - as you are probably aware SA records are a bit of a mess - don't even think about getting a full birth certificate.
My Great great grandfather, also a John, was a captain - settled in the Cape arround 1885 - moved to Durban when his wife came out from Greece. She died in 1905, He remarried a Dutch lady- moved to petermaritzburg 1908. Hence we may have a Boer War connection - keep in touch
regards
john dellis
