Brosters et al:-


Good Morning, I am Rod Gebhardt fro Cape Town, South Africa and have been researching my grandmother's family for many years. She was Gwladys Owen BROSTER, born in Queenstown, Cape Province, passed away in Florida, Transvaal, now known as Gauteng.

Her farther was Thomas BROSTER born in Wrexham, Wales where he eventually worked as a clerk for the Post Office. He came out to SA and settled in Queenstown where he was Headmaster at one of the schools there. He was instrumental in starting cricket at the schools. He retired to Bethlehem, Orange Free State, where he passed away at his son's house.

I picked up on all the posts on the KENDRICK/BROSTER connections. This has been one of my brickwalls in connection them to the main BROSTER family.

This is what I have: 

From a handwritten family tree received from Julia Evelyn BROSTER, which I have not yet been able to link to the mainstream BROSTER family:


David Kendrick BROSTER

Born in The Wirral, Cheshire (death notice states David was born in Rock Ferry) in 1889 died at the Railway Offices, Bulawayo on 06 August, 1957 who in Chester on 05 October, 1924 married OCP, Mary Lillian JONES

At the time of his death David Kendrick’s occupation is given as a Clerk and his address as 20 Ringwood Flats, 2nd Avenue, Rhodes Street, Bulawayo.

                                                            Children of David Kendrick and Mary Lillian:

Edward Kendrick BROSTER twin

Born Cheshire in 1926 who married in Bulawayo Lucis HART

In January, 1998 Edward Kendrick was staying at 6 Buhorde Road, Burnside, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe

                                                           Children of Edward Kendrick and Luas:

Another note on the Family Chart is that Maureen HUNTER (daughter of Marjorie HAIRE nee BROSTER) in April, 1998 was staying at 5 Howard Street, Kilmarnock, Scotland 

I would appreciate any assistance in this regard and would be willing to exchange any information I have.

Kind regards,

Rod Gebhardt
