F.F.5 - Freemantle Family - Richard(2nd)'s Afrikaaner Descendants.
F1/2. Richard Freemantle*(2nd)'s children were:
(From the first marriage:)
F3/3) William [ Richard?] Freemantle (1827-1868). See separate sections FF.1 and FF.2 for direct descent.
Very little has been traced regarding the other four children; that is those from the second marriage of F1/2.Richard (2nd) Freemantle and his second wife, Elizabeth Hannah Freemantle nee Hall, except the actual genealogical line of his son, F5/3.4 George Richard Freemantle (1st), most of whom are Afrikaans speaking. However, what is known about their children is as follows
F5/3.1 Ellen Ann Freemantle, (1838- ?) was the first child of the marriage between Richard Freemantle and Elizabeth Hannah Freemantle nee Hall. She was born on 5th August,1838 in Port Elizabeth and she married (1st) Henry Walker, who was a soldier, in KingWilliamsTown on 16.4.1866 and she married (2nd) Dr. ?(?) Lamb, [according to family members] probably in the United Kingdom and that is where she died.
[Recorded in the British Census, 1881 there was an Ellen Ann Lamb of Cape of Good Hope - born 1842, aged 39, married Alfred Lamb and he was born 1841, aged 40, born at West Bromwich, Stafford, England and residing at 70, Rea Street, Birmingham, Warwick, England. However, he was designated as a labourer and head of the household,, so perhaps the title given above from family recollection of 'Doctor' is in error or this is not the Ellen Ann Freemantle in question.]
F5/3.2 Frances Elizabeth Freemantle, (1840- ?) She was born on 10.2.1840 in Port Elizabeth and she married ??(?) Pos.(or Posse ?) Nothing more has been traced but it seems that they had a child, Richard Pos, who was born at the Little Fish River.
F5/3.3 Robert John Freemantle, who was possibly born in 1841 in Port Elizabeth, but this is unconfirmed and no other information has been traced.
