After completing his engineering apprenticeship, Richard Paver emigrated to the Eastern Cape in 1843. He worked on the watermills at Sidbury and Glenthorn before entering into an agreement with Sir Andries Stockenstrom to erect a mill at Maasstroom. His reminiscences, written about forty years later, deal largely with his experiences during the Frontier wars which ensued. In 1846 he was a member of the burgher force which, under Stockenstrom's command, cleared the Amatolas before striking out across the Kei River. After war had broken out again at the end of 1850, he and his brother Henry remained at Maasstrom, attempting to defend the position until it was destroyed by fire eight months later. Paver's reminiscences provide vivid insight into a little-known and contentious phase in the history of the Eastern Cape frontier.
