Wilfred Schreiner

Wilfred Schreiner was the son of Fred Schreiner and his wife Emma. Olive Schreiner spent some considerable time with Wilfred when she was living in Britain in the 1880s, with him often staying with her. He also later visited her in South Africa. Financially indulged by his father, Wilfred was a rather ‘unsteady’ and financially feckless young man and made what his parents thought was an improvident marriage. Wilfred and his wife died in early 1901 in a short time of each other during an influenza epidemic. It is highly likely that some letters were exchanged between Schreiner and Wilfred Schreiner, although none have been traced.
