BaileyAbeCaptainWas born in Cape Colony in 1864. He is the only son of T Bailey, was educated in England, and proceeded first to Barberton and then to Johannesburg in the early days where he soon acquired large mining interests. He was an active member of the Reform Committee; was tried for high treason against the Govt, of SAR; was imprisoned, and only released on payment of the generally imposed fine of £2,000. At the commencement of the Boer War he served as Intelligence Officer with Lord Roberts, and took a prominent part in the formation and organisation of Roberts' Horse and the SA Light Horse, largely contributing to the expense of their equipment, and afterwards proceeded to the front with the rank of Major as second in command with Gorringe's Flying Column, which he was also partly instrumental in raising. After the war (in Oct, 1902) he was appointed to the command of Kitchener's Fighting Scouts. Mr Bailey entered the arena of Cape Colonial politics in 1902, when he was elected unopposed in the Progressive interest for Barkly West, the only constituency which Cecil Rhodes ever represented in the Cape Legislative Assembly. He was Whip of the Progressive Party, and was re-elected at the general election in Feb, 1904, retiring in 1905 with a view to devoting himself to Transvaal politics. In the summer of 1906 he came to England to lay the views of the Transvaal Progressive party as regards the new Constitution before the British Government. He is a keen patron of all forms of sport, racing in both South Africa and England, and indulges particularly in shooting and cricket. He was elected President of the Wanderers' Club (Johannesburg) in 1902, and is a member of the MCC and many other sporting clubs. He married Caroline, elder daughter of John Paddon, who died in 1902, leaving him with two children: John Milner (godson of Lord Milner) and Cecil Marguerite Sidwell (godchild of Cecil Rhodes).Imperial Yeomanry
