Seminar - Verulam, Natal – St Albans’ own colonisation programme
January 19, 2023 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM at Zoom
Speaker – Kate Morris
The city of Verulam in Natal was founded in 1849 by William Josiah and Theophilus Irons from St Albans. Three ships brought Wesleyan emigrants to the site near Port Natal, now Durban, which Theophilus had claimed for the new town. The population today is 59 per cent Indian, 39 per cent black and just 2 per cent classed as coloured or white. Kate explores the city’s origins and history.
