I have a typed letter from my Great,Great Grandmother Esther Rose dated October 9th 1859 in tribute to her son Henry Rose.
A ship was run aground off Cape Towm( it is not clear where) but they were living close to Wynberg.
Henry and my Great,Great Grandfather went to see if they could assist.Henry took his horse to the ship and all were rescued but he drowned with the horse on the last run back to shore.
I do not see this documented but It was also told to me by my late father.
