circa 1777-1850
William Simpson 1
surgeon 2
born 2 February 1809, Larne, County Antrim 3
died 21 November 1863, Tulbagh 4
The dates of birth, his, his wife's and the those of the children, come
from family information collected by Ada Ethel Simpson (1874 - 1953)
and supplied by the late Andrew McMurray. The other information
comes from their death notices, Cape Archives.

At the census of 1841 the family was living at no 110 Guildford Street,
Holborn. Agnes Simpson, aged 20, born Ireland was with them, and
two children William, aged 6 and John aged 6 months.

According to the family story that their youngest daughter, Elizabeth,
was born at sea (3rd November 1849), during a storm off the Cape of
Good Hope while her parents were in transit with their family to the
Cape, gives a date for the family's arrival at the Cape.
