General Information:

Ian Stewart-Koster - KGF - George Herbert Pedler and Hendrina Johanna Glas were my great grandparents. I have an old newsclipping of their golden wedding anniversary. They went to Kenya, and then to South Africa. The story about how they met is quite interesting, she being Dutch (a Boer therefore) and he an Englishman, while the Boer War was in action. George died around 1969 from memory ……….. George had a son Richard George (Dick) Pedler who married Brenda Raper, daughter of Fred Raper ….. Dick settled in Durban
