WOLF, GEORGE GARCIA:

South-African merchant, and member of the Cape Parliament; born at Great Yarmouth 1838; died in London March 18, 1899. He commenced business as an apprentice in Manchester, but soon emigrated to Montreal, where he became a general merchant. In 1860 he went to Kimberley, where he opened a general store. He then became associated with the leading men of the diamond fields, and in 1882 was elected representative for Kimberley in the Cape Parliament. He was presented by his constituents with a gold casket containing 500 guineas and accompanied by an illuminated address. Wolf held several other public offices in Kimberley for some years, until his return to England.
