William Charles HOATEN was a major in the BSAP/military. He married Mabel Mary nee COOKSON, formerly CROMBIE and they had a son Eric Gerald Hoaten. In 1913 they lived in Bulawayo. Both William and Mabel died in Rhodesia and Eric was in South Africa by 1929. If anyone has any information on either of these surnames please contact me.

I am doing reesearch into the HOATEN family, but I know very little about them.

This is what I know:

William Charles Hoaten who was born in Middlesex c. 1879. He
emigrated to Southern Africa and was in Rhodesia by 1903 where he
became a career policeman (BSAP)/military man, retiring as a Major. He
died in Rhodesia. He married my g.g.m Mabel Mary nee Cookson,
formerly Crombie. I think Eric Gerald who was born in Jhb and whose
father on the birth certificate is listed as Alexander Crombie, was
probably the illegitimate son of Mabel and William Hoaten.Eric always
went by the surname Hoaten and William paid for Eric's sons to go to
boarding school in Port Elizabeth. I think Eric Hoaten went to St
Georges College in Salisbury and was probably in Rhodesia until 1929.

I am finding very very little information on the Hoaten family. Other
than my family there are no other Hoatens in South Africa. I have
search on the archives in SA and UK and not found anything. Getting
information from Rhodesia/Zimbabwe is nigh impossible. Hence my email
to you.

Do you perhaps have any information on him/his family? Or any
suggestions where else I can look?
