red mail woodward in bathford avon - (Bathford - Somerset)
Two brothers, Robert Blake Woodward and John Deverell Stewart Woodward b 1848 & 1849 Bathford were sons of Richard and Mary (nee Stewart) Woodward. Richard a retired Indian Army man, remarried ca 1858 Harriet (maiden name unknown). Robert B and John D S Woodward became missionaries, went to America then in early 1870s to Natal South Africa where they were ordained into the Anglican Church in 1881. They were ornithologists and wrote the first study of Natal Birds (the title of their book)in 1899. The last reference to the brothers in SA is 1905. It's likely that they returned to England and died there - but where? They had at least one full sister, Rosina, and a half-sister Alice. I particularly need a photograph of the brothers, but any further information on the family or on the brothers' burial place welcomed. I'm not connected to the Woodwards, but am a genealogist and historian working in Natal and attempting to compile what will be the first full chronology of the lives of these two elusive individuals, after whom some Natal bird species are named.
