Gold was discovered at Barberton in 1885 and it became a large mining centre, populated predominantly by ‘Uitlanders’.  After the declaration of war, many Uitlanders fled and Barberton was held by the Boers until it was captured by the British on 13 September 1900. 

The Barberton Town Guard were called out for active service on 8 December 1900 and was disbanded on 21 December 1901.
