My grandfather is Robert "Penn" Harvey born 29 September 1900 in Redruth, Cornwall. His father was John Eden Harvey and his father was also a John Harvey. John Eden was married to Lilie Jeffery (apparently also from Cornwall). They emigrated to South Africa in the early 1900's. It might only be a coincidence, but I think the "Penn" might just be a connection. Please contact me at my e-mail.

Looking forward to a reply.
