|2nd September 2003||Durnford's Children|
Col Anthony Durnford had three children - two boys and a girl.
Have always believed that the two eldest children died before the Anglo Zulu War, and that he'd blamed the death of his eldest son on his wife.
Can anyone help ?
Had one or two sons died before AZW ?
Can you assist with names of children in particular, or names of those who had died ?

Only notes I have:
1. Infant son buried in Malta 1856
2. Daughter Francis born 1857
3. 2nd daughter - Julia Brabazon died 1860
That's the best I can do.

Edward Charles 1855-1856
Frances E.M. b. 1857
Julia Brabazon 1859-1860
Why do you want to know?
