The Recollections of Elizabeth Rolland. (1803-1901)


Born in England in 1803, Elizabeth Rolland was brought to South Africa as an infant school teacher by Dr. John Pillip in 1829,and spent the remainder of her long life in this country.While giving a full account of her English backgrownd,her recollections,written in the 1870’s,are especially valuable for the information on Beersheba,the mission station in the present Orange Free State which she and her husband, the Revd.Samuel Rolland, founder in 1835 and which was destroyed in the first Sotho-Free State War of 1858.
