Dear Trevor,
Noreen Wright ask me to say hello as she knows some Ferdinands or Connections ,
My maternal grand mother Lena Doral (Widor Of Dr Cyril nicholas ) married in 1953 Fred Newman ,who I think was a Teacher in Taiping ? Malaya.
Fredīs sister, Meta Newman married my īgreat grand uncle Philip van der straaten,
Another Newman , brother David Newman married Eva Ford ,( D/o Imelda da Silva & Albert Ford,)Eva Ford is 1st cousin of my Mother ,these Newmans are children of George Newman & Caroline Toussaints who is a distant relative to my van der straaten side,
Now this Newman Branch are also Cousins of Monica Newman,
Monica Newman īs Aunt Ivy Rose Newman married my grand uncle Mervyn Roy Nicholas, Brother of Dr Cyril Nicholas.
I have distance relatives with the Andree family , too.
You must be related to the Late Rodney Ferdinands , ? His Book "Pride & Prejudice , on burghers is so well sold & yet only 2000 Items ,I have the Luck to purchase a Copy , ,Would More books be Published ?The Nice thing about burghers is most of us are linked/ Related to each otherīs family even when its a connection.or Marriage.Regards Nina.
