List of Persons Qualified to Vote at the Election of Councillors for the Borough of Durban, District of Natal, for the Year commencing 15th July 1856 and ending 4th July 1857
From Pat Smith:
This appears in Vol 5 of British Settlers to Natal on page 193 and reads:
In a list of debtors of the baker Robert Forsyth* dated early 1873, and filed with his estate papers, Arnold appears as a wagoner of West Street, Durban.
Source: Insolvent Estates 1/17 no.77
There is a copy of Arnold's will (20 Dec. 1859) preserved among the notarial protocols of Harry Escombe. Here his wife's surname looks like Tinten.
Source: Notarial Protocols of all notaries who started practising before the 1890's have been consulted. IV/5/3 no. 329ab
Dr. C.M. Adridge's* ledger records the vaccination in May 1863 of the Arnolds' son George aged seven months, at which time they were resident at the Halfway House on the Durban/Pietermaritzburg road. This is surprising as they already had a son George Thomas then aged eleven years.
