Mingay History Web Pages (MHWP)








I received an e-mail from a very helpful lady who kindly supplied the following information. I would be very pleased to expand on this if anyone has further information.


On a recent visit to South Africa, I photographed some Mingay gravestones in a churchyard at Bulwer, Kwazulu-Natal. I believe there are still Mingays living in the area.

If you would like the photos for your website, please let me know. As far as I know I have no connection to these Mingays, but the name struck me as I have a distant link by marriage with a Mingay in my grandmother's family tree and was in touch with you (or perhaps some other Mingay researcher?) some years ago.

Hope these will help someone make connections. Bulwer is a small place in a beautiful region of Kwazulu-Natal, near Ixopo. The church was built in the 1880s from hand-sawn yellowwood, hence its nickname. Unfortunately, it was closed when we were there so we didn't see the inside, but there is a photo on line.

Best wishes
Marjorie Robbins.
