Between 1849 and 1861, 2 brothers Henry and Richard followed John Baxter to South Africa, and a fourth, Robert, went to America, leaving parents John and Elizabeth, and 6 sisters, Johannah Staniforth, Alice Landin, Mary Landin, Elizabeth Brierly, Sophia Barfield and Sarah Brier in Northamptonshire, England.

John's diary and this collection of letters by various family members, gives a glimpse into the hardships and successes experienced during their voyages, the early years in their new countries, and those from Egbert William Baxter and George Easter Baxter in 1900, the impact of the Anglo Boer war on the, by then, extended family.

Thanks to Brig Anthony Baxter, Graham Farrell and all unknown parties who have preserved, transcribed and distributed these documents.
