Marriage Notes for Oswald Hilton P BARRAUD\Hilda May KNIBBS:

I found a reference to them being married in the Church of the Holy Trinity, King Williams Town. Oswald's name was given as BarraNd.

Notes for Oswald Hilton P BARRAUD:

Also known as: Barand

Interestingly, I see there was a photographer's studio under the name of Barraud Bros. in Grahamstown in the 1890's/1900's, at the same sort of time there was a J Knibbs photographer (who I believe was Hilda's brother John) in King William's Town.

Oswald was a member of the British Commonwealth Ex-Servicemen's League (BCESL), and a war veteran.

Our gratitude goes to the members and volunteers at the eGGSA Branch of The Genealogical Society of South African for recording the details on their web site in memory of Oswald and his wife Hilda.

Notes for Hilda May KNIBBS:

John Edward Knibbs' death notice confirms that Hilda married "Barrand". Uncertainty as to whether it is "Barrand" or "Barraud".
