This is an informal history of both the Kelland and Street families. The Kelland family in South Africa seem to have originated from one immigrant in the late 1880's, and the Street family from the Derbyshire area, immigrated to South Africa in the late 1960's. Stories and photos make up the history of our past!
It isn't complete, and will continue to be added to as new information, especially of the family history, comes to light.
Both the Kelland and the Street families have ancestors who came from the North West Lancashire county of England, viz the Crossleys on the Kelland side and the Ashforth's on the Street side, and both families had something to do with the cotton industry.
Maybe you'll enjoy some of the family writings. Grandfathers Ash & Hawley wrote some poems, Dad Street wrote some books, Mum Street has written some poems and even I've written some poems and short stories, and my daughter studied Creative Writing and has written a whole host of stuff!

Philip Edmond Francis Kelland 1917-1980. His boys learned to play golf from when they were very young. This is one of the very few pics we have of him - doing his favourite thing at Clovelly Country Club Golf Course, Western Cape, South Africa.
Albert Douglas Street (known as Doug) 1920-2002 I really love this pic of my Dad taken somewhere around the 1960's! He's got such a mischievous smile!
