Abstract
Although John Bardwell Ebden was actively involved in almost every branch of colonial life during the period 1806 - 1849, this is the first detailed study of his role in and contribution to the development of the Cape Colony during that long period. In addition to a wide range of secondary sources which gave a general indication of Ebden's activities, primary sources in the Cape Archives Depot, Cape Town, such as the archives of the Governor, Colonial Office,Legislative Council, Wine Taster, Notarial Deeds and papers of the Cape Town Commercial Exchange and Chamber of Commerce and of the Anti-Convict Association, supplied the necessary details which enabled a full-scale reconstruction to be made of his contributions in a variety of fields. All archival sources mentioned in this thesis are housed in the Cape Archives Depot except where otherwise indicated.
