REID AND PAULSE/Scotland and South Africa
According to his daughter Emma’s birthday book, William George Reid was born in Scotland on 24 March 1850. He emigrated to South Africa before marrying Susan Johanna Paulse, who was classed as ‘coloured’. Susan was born in Paarl, South Africa, in about 1859. Their first child, Susan, was born in 1897.
I can’t find William’s birth in Scotland nor any record of their marriage in South Africa. It’s thought William possibly worked as a railways inspector at Adderley Road (main station) at Salt River. Barbara Hollis, Australia
