(Port Elizabeth: the author, 2010) 9780620467230, 2010. Sub-title reads: "A review of the life and contribution of Sir George Morris Sutton (KCMG) to the Colony of Natal based on his personal diaries (1872-1898). It also covers the period of his life in Natal until his death in 1913". 238 x 160 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. 372, incl. index; endpaper map; liberally illustrated. New. "George Sutton and his family arrived in Colonial Natal in 1872. He acquired farmland near Howick and soon made his mark in agricultural circles and in the political arena. It is fortuitous that he left behind a most valuable set of diaries covering the period 1874 to 1898. These, together with other reference works, enabled the author to review his contribution to the development of the Colony up to the time of Union in 1910. He pressed for technological advancement among farmers and played a leadership role in the wattle bark industry. He tirelessly fought to see Responsible Government granted to Natal in 1893. George Sutton became Prime Minister of Natal in 1903 and was knighted (KCMG) in the following year. The book provides insight into conditions prevailing in the Colony, especially in the Midlands of Natal at that time. The names of many prominent personalities are noted. Apart from political issues the book reveals details of family matters, farming operations, social contacts, church affairs and the hardships and joys faced over a period of 41 years. No complete biography has been written on Sir George and this book does not purport to take the place of a full biography. This attempt aims to give recognition to issues thus far neglected and to summarise his Diaries.". Seller Inventory # 6727
