A small town in KwaZulu Nata. Founded in 1887 after the annexation of Zululand and named after Sir Melmoth Osborn, resident cimmissioner.

During the Boer War, Melmoth furnished a Rifle Association and the Melmoth Reserves in 1906.

Rory's biography of Robert McAlister of the Melmoth Rifle Association is definitely a good read.
