My Mum ( Eleanor ) always told us that her Grandad Gill was in South Africa, prospecting for gold....and it was there he was murdered for his riches by an 'acquaintance'. That same person was reported to have returned to England ... "a wealthier person !!"

We first see Edward in the 1851 Census as a 2 year old. In 1881, he is shown as an Iron Miner that fits with the gold mining story!
