At some time during the mid to late 1880s a Cornish miner in his early 20s, from a large, probably poor, family, went to South Africa, presumably to work as a miner. He had returned to England by 1899, when he married. When he died in 1903, aged 39, he owned three properties in Cornwall and two in South Africa. Is there any way in which I can trace his mining activity in South Africa? I imagine he was working independently in his own right, although I suspect he ceased once he had made his pile. In 1901 and in South Afican documentation associated with his probate he is described as a farmer.
