Son of James and Inez Ravenscroft, of Oudtshoorn, Cape Province, South Africa.
The following persons on the 23 March 1937 were married before the Magistrate:
Jasper Johannes Gideon Ravenscroft & Johanna Catherine Ravenscroft – born van Rensburg.
The marriage was accepted as on 31 March 1937 seen here ecclesiastically
by the undersigned.
(Translates to proper English as to mean - “he marriage was recognised by the church”
Jasper married another Ravenscroft born van Rensburg. Probably a ‘sister in law’ but I have been unable to connect where she fitted into the Ravenscroft Family before this marriage.
