St James 5 Star BB Cape Town | Vancouver Suite - Classic ± 70M2

The Manor was originally part of a large property called ‘The Mearns’, granted to Philip Morgenrood in April 1880. He subdivided the erf and in 1883 sold a part measuring 1 morgen 14 square roods and 28 square feet to William Torbet.

St James 5 Star B&B Cape Town | Gentry Suite - Deluxe ± 60M2

Captain Gentry was born in 1874 in England and died in 1938 in St James. Known as the ‘doyen of hotel proprietors’, he came to South Africa in 1908 and bought the Seahurst Hotel in St James from Jessie Miller. In 1915 he joined the St James Hotel, which he took ownership of in 1925 for £20 000, and sold the Seahurst.

His friendly ways and extrovert mannerisms made him a favourite with the locals and the overseas visitors. He served on the Kalk Bay-Muizenberg Municipality as a Councillor from 1911 and was a City Councillor from 1913 until 1933. His portfolio for Kalk Bay-Muizenberg dealt with Leisure and Entertainment while for Cape Town he worked on the Improvements and Parks Committee.

St James 5 Star B&B Cape Town | Boyes Suite - Deluxe ± 60M2

George Boyes, born 1863 in Cape Town, joined the Civil Service as a clerk in 1883. In 1892, he was appointed Chief Commissioner and Resident Magistrate of Mafikeng. In 1904, he became Resident Magistrate, Collector of Customs and Port Captain at Simon’s Town, the Royal Navy’s main base in the southern hemisphere. It was here he developed his interest in the South Peninsula and its road network. He extended the road from Miller’s Point to Smitswinkel Bay, the old Red Hill Rd to Klaasjagersberg, and the high-level road from Muizenberg to Kalk Bay, named ‘Boyes Drive’ in his honour. This was his finest contribution to the ‘All Round the Cape Peninsula Road Project’. In 1916 he left for Queenstown, returned in 1919 as Chief Magistrate until his retirement in 1923 and became a City Councillor, but suddenly took ill in 1924 and passed away at home.

At the outbreak of war in 1939 she was active in the South Peninsula and founded the SA Voluntary Service to the Armed Forces and to channel gifts from SA to Britain.

Henry Rudd, born 1868 in Cape Town, was the son of Charles Rudd who was friends and partners with Cecil John Rhodes from 1872, working diamonds in Kimberley, and so on. Between 1873 and 1881, Rhodes intermittently attended college in England while Charles managed their interests. By 1880 they’d become wealthy men and, with others, formed De Beers. Henry Rudd joined the board as a Director in 1902. He married Mabel Blythe in 1893 then moved to St James in 1929 having purchased ‘Blencathra’ (40 Main Rd) and ‘Rocklands’ (38 Main Rd). In 1933, he was remarried to Emilie Poole of France – the former companion to Mabel. It was under his ownership, until his death in 1963, that both homes received a serious overhaul.
