dc.description.abstract This thesis sets out to examine the important role of the Xhosa in the development of King William's Town during a crucial period. The local Xhosa community and the nearby Arna Ntinde tribe under Chief Jan Tzatzoe obviously made a major contribution to the history of British Kaffraria's capital in this era (1854-1861), but there were many other external forces. The interaction between cultures in and around King William's Town affected the Xhosa at all levels. This process of acculturation was hastened by many of Sir George Grey's administrative measures. He established several institutions in the Kaffrarian capital for the benefit of the Xhosa population as a whole and some aspects of his "native policy" are still applied on a national basis. Grey's administration therefore forms one of the central issues. en_ZA
