Hi Richard

Stellawood Cemetery, Durban

Photos : Google : graves-at-eggsa

Since they are buried in Durban, I assume they lived there. There is no online census data in South Africa to my knowledge.
However, if you do a search online including their names and perhaps Durban or Natal, you are quite likely to find something like marriage information etc.

Also SA National Archives NAAIRS. Search under Winton. I noticed that some spelling seems to be Cullan. These documents would need a researcher to obtain a copy if you require. I love too far from Durban to help !

Regards
Adrian

Hi, I'm the great-granddaughter of David Gullan Winton.

He had two sons, my grandfather Alan Beaton Winton (d.1963) who lived in Johannesburg, married (and divorced from) Pauline Miriam "May" Beitz, and great uncle Patrick Winton (d. 1976) who lived in Durban, and was married twice, first to auntie Nan (Agnes) and then remarried, after she passed away, to Olive. My late father Ian Alistair Winton was his only child. I have two brothers.

Anyhow, I don't have a copy of his book and didn't know about it, so thanks for that.

Hello Tracy, how wonderful to hear from one of the South African Wintons after 121 years! My younger (of two) sons is very interested in military history, and will be happy to hear about this contact. I have been researching family history for 30 years, and have a great deal of information on the Wintons, going back to 1686 in Scotland. If you or your brothers are interested, I will be happy to send to you. You can reach me at mlwinton at Hotmail dot com. I was grateful for the information you sent. I just began this year to try to trace the families of David Gullan Winton in South Africa, and of two great-uncles of my sons, who went to New Zealand, Alan Seton Winton (1907-1992) and his brother Douglas Murray Winton (b.1904).
I found a marriage record for David Gullan Winton to Jessie Evelyn Gorton 16 Nov 1915 at St Pauls, Durban. Do you know if there is a website where one can access South African civil records? David Gullan Winton was named for his grandmother Helen Gullan Winton, and her father David Gullan. They were a family of cabinetmakers who lived on the coast just south of Edinburgh, and we know from a sketch that David Gullan had red hair! Anyway, I can scan and send a family pedigree if you wish, but I would need your email also. I do have a few more questions as I'd love to fill in some blanks......do hope you will contact me. All best wishes, Marilyn Winton Totten

Hi Marilyn, I'm very excited to connect with you. Thanks for writing back with so much wonderful information. I'm amazed that you've traced us back to 1686!
I'm on Facebook - not sure if you are, but I'm going to email you so we can stay connected.
I'm not sure about websites for records and I live in Toronto Canada so I can't go through actual records in South Africa.
All the best,
Tracey
