Donald Garvie and his brother in law Stephen Steyn were already in the area in 1905 during the Nandi Uprisings (R.Meinertzhagen, Kenya Diary). Donald and Cornelia Garvie's daughter Dorothy was born during the Nandi Revolution at Kapsabet on the 18th February 1905. Donald and his family later settled in Nairobi where he died.

Anyone with further information on the Garvies and Steyns of Nandi will be greatly appreciated.
