Santa Clara Blue Plaque - Heritage Portal - 2014

This is the site of the house built for Rowland Albermarle Arthur Bettington, a stockbroker, who raised “Bettington’s Horse” in 1895 and rode out to support Dr Jameson’s abortive invasion of the Transvaal. In 1899 Bettington with his four sons volunteered. He joined Thorneycroft’s Mounted Infantry with the rank of captain and fought in the Natal campaign until he was wounded at Spionkop.
