A keen observer, Edward Bushnan Rose in his notebook records everything of interest, including an interview with General Smuts when the Boer forces were about to surrender. He included a number of photographs, which he must have obtained from the Barnett's shop in Johannesburg, which was by then run by David Barnett after the death of his brother Joseph.

Maria Stella Petronilla (Chiappini) Freifrau von Ungern Sternberg, Manuscript

  • ZA HPRA A125
  • Fonds
  • 1838

'Maria Stella, ou echange criminel d'une demoiselle du plus haut rang, contre un garcon de la condition la plus vile. A Paris et dans les departements chez les principaux libraires, 1838'.

Maria Stella was the daughter of Lorenzo Chiappini. Her first husband was Thomas Wynn, who became Baron Newborough, and after the latter's death, she married Baron Edward Ungern Sternberg, a Russian. Maria claimed to be the legitimate daughter of Louis Philippe, duke of Orleans, and to have been exchanged at birth for a male child afterwards Louis Philippe, King of France. A. Castelot in his Philippe Egalite, 1950 has finally demolished the legend. Maria's brother Antonio settled at the Cape and is the founder of the family Chiappini at the Cape.
