About This Item

(Victoria, Australia: the author, 2014) 9780980755046. 240 x 180 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. (ii) + vi + 218, incl. index; liberally illustrated with contemporary photographs, artwork and facsimiles; map. Near-fine condition. "William Edward Moore was expected to follow his father into military service but his life turned upside down at the age of nine when his father died. He was taken under the wing of the Chief Justice of the Cape, Sir John Wylde, who encouraged the young boy to pursue a careeer in law. Moore repaid the generosity of his benefactor by having an outstanding legal career that was to last for sixty-four years. Having settled in the tiny hamlet of Papendorp, he became passionately involved in its welfare and development. He was the driving force that saw Papendorp later become the municipality of Woodstock and he was its first mayor. ... The Father of Woodstock traces the settlement of the Cape from its 17th century beginnings under Dutch rule through the 19th century when the British assumed power and into the early 20th century. The story of WE Moore, his activities, achievements and busy life are set within the context of the ever-changing and fascinating history of the new colony." .
