Custodial history

Scope and content

The Kantor family originated from Shavl (Šiauliai) Lithuania. Abram Zelik Kantor was a well to do town dweller and a merchant. One of his sons was Vulf Kantor and a daughter was Musha Reuvid (nee Kantor). Vulf and his wife Faiga Kantor had 8 children, of whom 7 emigrated to South Africa. They included Louisa Rapeport formerly Ettin, Charlotte Kantor, Fredericka Ettin, Abraham Kantor, Maurice Kantor, Gabriel Kantor and Rose Saltman. Family members of Vulf’s sister, Musha Reuvid (nee Kantor) also emigrated to South Africa.

During the Anglo Boer War, the Kantor family members had different allegiances. Abraham Kantor fought with the Boers against the British. Charlotte’s husband, Robert was the manager of Ohlsson’s Breweries and supplied the British (Imperial) Military Railways army with provisions. Gabriel Kantor and Harris Saltman were war refugees and left the Transvaal Republic for the Cape Colony.
