Synopsis

The Genealogy of the Purchase Family in Britain and Southern Africa: the Ancestors of Harvey Spurgeon Purchase (1906 - 1968) and the Descendants of James Purchase (1689/91 - 1723/4) by Nancy R. Purchase, H. Graham Purchase

A fascinating book covering fourteen generations of the extended Purchase family. The Purchase ancestors from England were related to Rev. Charles Haddon Spurgeon from London and were missionaries to Southern Africa. They settled in Northern Rhodesia and raised their families under very primitive conditions. In addition to instilling Christian principles into local Africans, they taught them common farming and building skills. The descriptions of confrontations with wild animals and interactions with native Africans are at times riveting. Successive generations of Purchases spread out all over the world.
