My grandfather Hugh Hosking from Hayle, Cornwall came to South Africa in 1894, he went back to the UK where he married Elizabeth Martin in Stithians, Cornwall. Hugh was a mining engineer from the Camborne School of Mines. My father was their third son, born 18 JUL 1907 in Boksburg, SA, his father Hugh, died in 1915. Hugh was a Mason & I have followed in his footsteps & am a Mason here in South Africa. My mother Doreen Mary Hosking (nee Prisk) was born in Benoni, SA, both of her parents were from Camborne, Cornwall.

I enjoy fly fishing, pubs (I have a full English pub at home), genealogy & travelling.
