I'm searching for a member of our family who disappeared between 1901 & 1910. His name was James Mitchell Stewart. Born in Crieff Perthshire, Scotland in 1882. The only address I have is Mombasa, Kenya. Any help or advice much appreciated.


Brian Connell <brian@nici.co.za>

 

What a great site! I was educated in Kenya, attending Duke of York in early sixties. My nickname was "Fuzzy" on account of totally out of control curly hair! I was a day scholar at DOY, lived in Karen near the Westwood Park Hotel and was a keen and successful athlete. At the risk of total embarrassment, I had a massive crush on Beverly Meaden (and to a lesser extent, her sister: Andrea) and have often wondered what became of them. I have led an active and fulfilling life as a wildlife and nature photographer, but am now getting a bit too old to go traipsing through African bush in search of animals to photograph. I now live in New Germany, South Africa.

If anyone remembers me, I would be deliriously happy to hear from them.

 

Brian died in May 2016.

I went to Kenya in 1946 at the age of 9 to join my Father who was in the British Army recently arrived from the North African Campaign. I went to Nairobi Primary School, St Mary's School for a short while then Prince of Wales. I joined Kenya Police in 1956 until 1964 when I left to join the British Army which I retired from in 1980 as a Major. I then joined police force in Papua New Guinea for 6 years, finally starting a security company there with which I was involved until 2005. I am now living in Queensland Australia and spend my time traveling the world.

Hello, lovely to find this website. My father was in the Army and this took us to Kenya around 1955/56. He was stationed at Kahaway Camp and we resided first of all in the Spread Eagle Hotel. From there we moved across the road to a rondavel owned by the Mustows who had a farm. I was at school at the Loretto Convent, Valley Road. Our next move was to Nanyuki where we lived in a small bungalow down a road called 4th Avenue and then in a bungalow owned by Miss Thring who ran a riding school. I was at School at the Beehive and we returned to the UK late 1958.

 

WEBMASTER: My mother, Edna Burdette, was a teacher at the Beehive in 1930. PH.

Arrived in Kenya 1950 aged 2. My folks posted as DCO in Kisii for Nyanza District. Grew up with no shoes on - wonderful. Moved to Nairobi aged 7. Went on St. Marys where my two brothers attended. My Father, Joe Reynolds, worked for Education Ministry, then appointed to teach at Delamere School. Become headmaster around 1961. I was sent to boarding school in Dublin in 1962. I came home three times but then my folks left for UK in 1966. I am grateful for the childhood I had. Unmatchable. I hope some of the Delamere and St Marys folks connect.

Jennifer Grace McGinlay <darcraven@mac.com>

 

I grew up in Kenya in Kericho/Nyeri/Eldoret (Hill School) and Kenya High School (Boma) graduating in '69. I married Mike Lorenzi (ex EAA who had run in with Uganda president!) and we went to Gulf Air. Now live in USA but am trying to do some research on my mother's first husband whose name was Aubrey George Randall (British) born in Kijabe in 1928. Would like to try and find his relatives, father was Albert Calvin Randall and was a sub farm manager in Arusha and Thika and mother Florence Maud Randall nee Randall. He is supposed to be buried at the Nairobi Cemetery but good luck trying to find information on that unless someone has had some luck. Would like to fill in this mystery in our family. Any help would be good. Assume at age of 21 years he would have been part of the Kenya Regiment as most Kenya guys were?

We moved to Kenya when things folded, my brother Rory was born in 1957, and I attended St George's Primary from 1955 to 1960. Brigid was at Loreto Convent, Valley Rd.Then for me, five years of boarding school in N. Ireland. I now live in Queensland and would like to hear from anybody who knew us back in the Colonial days.

I grew up in Guernsey, then emigrated to Kenya in 1954, working as an Assistant Manager for Wil Powys at Kisima Farms, near Timau, high up on Mt. Kenya. I became a KPR Tracker Team leader against the Mau Mau gangs in the Mt. Kenya Crown Forest with a particular assignment to get Dedan Kimathi (believed to live in the caves above the bamboo line). Wil Powys's daughter Rose married a White Hunter, and they both live at Borana Lodge, on land further down the mountain from Kisima Farm. Does anyone remember that part of Kenya and my times there?
