'The Mighty Umzimvubu' - by Jean Coulter
One of the greatest rivers along the coast of Pondoland is near the township of Port St. John's. In the early days the crossing of this river, the Umzimvubu, was made by pont...
On another occasion, Claude Stanford left Lusikisiki accompanied by his sister, Maude, and another attorney by the name of Kottick. They were on their way to Port St John's to attend the circuit court.
Due to the heavy summer storms the river was in flood and the pont was not working. Claude Stanford had been in this predicament before and knew of an African who ferried people across the river in a rowing boat, taking off higher up stream beyond the bend in the river.
Although at the time in question, Claude Stanford mentioned to the ferryman that the boat should start even higher upstream because of the swiftly running current, his suggestion went unheeded. He decided to leave it to the boatman, whom he reasoned had so much previous experience at his task.
They had hardly drawn away from the bank when a mass of water struck the boat and capsized it, throwing the occupants into the swirling, turbulent muddy water.
Claude Stanford shouted to his sister to make every effort to clutch the pont cables, which at normal times hung loosely from one bank to the other, but because of the height of the swollen river and the drag of the pont, now stretched tautly on the surface of the rushing waters. This she was able to do and they were both helped ashore and once again the house on the Lusikisiki side of the river was a place of refuge.
"Mr Kottick was swept downstream for quite some distance, but managed to get ashore on the beach near the mouth of the river. The ferryman lost his boat, but by clinging to the pont, also reached safety"..

Walter Stanford lived at Buckkraal until his father's death in 1856 after which he, his mother and brothers went to live with his uncle, Joseph Cox Warner and wife, Matilda Warner nee Stanford at Glen Grey. In 1860 after a few years of home teaching by his maiden aunt, Mary Stanford, he was sent to Lovedale College near Alice, Cape, but returned to Glen Grey in July 1863 as a junior clerk to assist his uncle, who was the Tambookie Agent (that is Her Majesty's representative to an independent African Tribe - to quote from the introduction to his Reminiscences). On 31st October 1869 after six years of employment at sixty pounds per annum, 'the country', he dryly notes,' could no longer afford to retain my services'. For several months he was employed in private business as a bookkeeper and then returned to the Department at the greatly enhanced salary of one-hundred-and-twenty pounds per annum. The next few years were spent mainly in Queenstown and East London, E.P.
He became a Government officer at Glen Grey in 1874 and magistrate with Dalasile, chief of the Ama-Qwati tribe in 1874. The following year he was also Captain of Native Levies. Then followed the Gcaleka War (1877-79) and the war of 1880, when he escaped from Engobo to Dordrecht. In 1881 he was promoted to Commandant and sat on the Commision for Native Laws and Customs. In 1884 he became Chief Magistrate of Griqueland East and in 1902 Chief Magistrate of Tembuland. He was also appointed Under Secretary for Native Affairs and reformed this department. In 1908, on Dr. Jameson's advice, he stood for Tembuland and was returned as their Member of Parliament. He also beca,e a member of the Senate. His active political career ended in July 1919 and his services were recognised with a K.B.E., which was gazetted at the same time as the D.S.O. awarded to his son, Arthur, for services in France in the Royal Field Artillary. In 1920 he helped found the 1820 Memorial Settler's Association and was Chairman of the Community Chest of Cape Town.

From: 'Where Rainbows Call' - Basil Holt
...That the annexation of Pondoland to the Colony in 1894 was bloodless was largely due to the wisdom and tact of two great magistrates. These were Major Henry Elliot of Umtata, Chief Magistrate of Tembuland and Walter Stanford, Chief Magistrate of East Griqueland, who resided in Kokstad.
...Stanford, too, went on to honours. In 1902 when Elliot retired from the Chief Magistracy of Tembuland and the Transkei, it was decided not to replace him, but instead combine his territory with those under Stanford - Walter Stanford thus became the first Chief Magistrate of the united Transkeian Territories embracing all the region between the Kei and Natal and between the Drakensberg mountains and the sea. His two brothers R.W.Stanford and A.H.Stanford became his two assistant Chief Magistrates at Kokstad and Umtata respectively. He afterwards became Secretary of Native Affairs in Cape Town and a member of the Senate in Parliament. In 1919, he was knighted and in 1933 he died at 83 years of age.
