In Reply to: Re: Yarr family in South Africa by Mary Yarr of 33

My name is Mabel Pretorius. My maiden name is Yarr. My grandfather was William Yarr who married Mabel Evelina[?] Edmeades in Oudtshoorn in South Africa. They had 3 children; Robert, Toi and William Edmeades Yarr. Robert had, I think, 2 daughters by two different marriages. Teh older daughter, Dorothy, was raised by my grandmother [Mabel]. Toi had a son and daughter who are, I think, both in New Zealand. My grandmother, Mabel Edmeades, was disowned by her father for marrying my grandfather, and although his will specifies inheritances for all his [many] children by several marriages, hers bypasses her and went to her children, but then as Dorothy was raised by her, it went to her. I think Dorothy has two daughters, and married JohN[?] Kleynhans.

William {Bill], my father, had two children, Mark John [who is Shaun's father], and me. Shaun, you can fill in you/your brothers' info. I have 3 sons, Andries Etienne, Dean William and Jason Christopher. Etienne has 3 children, Christine, Byron and Monique. Jason has a new baby daughter, Cassidy Aimee.
