Edwin's Probate


On 21 December, 1912, Mr E. K. Anniss, a trader, aged 60, arrived in London on the Aberdeen White Star Line's 'Moravian', which sailed to England from Brisbane, Australia. Mr Anniss joined the ship at Durban and gave his 'Last Country of Abode' as Basutoland. A Mr E. K. Anniss died in South Africa, coincidentally, in 1935. So probably not 'our' Edwin.
