Biography* Mary Florence LAMB was born 14 August 1875 in Meadowbank, South Leith, Scotland. She was a very attractive & feisty young woman who frequently chaffed at the restrictions her parents imposed on her. When this happened she would be sent/or went to an Aunt who lived on the South Coast of England at Herne Bay. However after a while she would quarrel with the Aunt in Herne Bay & return to her parents in Edinburgh. Apparently one day she quarreled with both aunt & parents & decided to take herself off to America, a not inconsiderable feat in those days for a young woman of less than 20 years old.2

    On my father (Philip Nicholas Coleper)'s birth certificate, the age of his father, George Kopper Colepeper, was given as 42 (he registered the birth by the way). This would mean he was born in 1865. This conflicts with the information hat his birth was 29th Sept 1862 & his baptism was Jan 1863.The birth certificate also says that George & Mary Lamb were married in Durban on 16th June 1896.
