FerreiraIgnatiusHe was born in Pretoria and spent some of his life in Kimberley. He was one of the first pioneers of the Johannesburg gold fields in 1886. A Colonel in 1886 he was Boer general at the start of the Boer War. He succeeded C J Wessels on 1 Jan 1900. He was accidentally killed at Paardeberg. De Wet said of him “It was while I was engaged in my efforts to relieve Cronje, that a gun accident occurred in which General Ferreira was fatally wounded. Not only his own family, but the whole nation, lost in him a man whom they can never forget. I received the sad news the day after his death, and, although the place of his burial was not more than two hours' ride from my camp, I was too much occupied with my own affairs to be able to attend his funeral.”Boer Forces

GregorowskiJudgeFormerly a Judge of the OFS, was in 1896 State Attorney to that Republic when invited to preside over the trial of the Reform prisoners at Pretoria, although having no status in the Transvaal. He was accordingly provisionally appointed to a seat on the Transvaal Bench. He was noted for the peculiar severity of his sentences of all except Boers, and it is asserted that he came to the trial of the Reformers with the full intent of stretching the law to its utmost against the prisoners. In summing up he stated that he held the signatories of the letter of invitation to Dr Jameson to be directly responsible for the shedding of the burghers' blood at Doornkop. Notwithstanding that the Committee had offered to guarantee with their persons that if the Govt, would allow Dr Jameson to come into Johannesburg unmolested, he would leave again peacefully as soon as possible, and setting aside the special statutes of the State, he passed the death sentence upon them under Roman Dutch law. The Judge then passed sentence on the other prisoners, the rank and file of the Reform Committee, condemning them to two years' imprisonment, to pay fines of £2,000 each, or as an alternative to suffer another year's imprisonment, and thereafter to be banished from the State for a period of three years. Mr Gregorowski resigned his judgeship to fill the post of State Attorney vacated by Dr Coster. When a law was passed (No. 1 of 1897) empowering the Govt, to exact assurances from the judges that they would respect all resolutions of the Volksraad as having the force of law and declare themselves not entitled to test the validity of a law by its agreement or conflict with the Constitution, and empowering the President to summarily dismiss the judges Mr Gregorowski emphatically stated that no honourable man could possibly sit upon the Transvaal Bench so long as that law remained upon the Statute Book. Nevertheless, on having to decide the question of costs which was referred to him in the case of Brown v. the State, he gave a judgment which practically brought the case under the operation of the obnoxious law. Furthermore, when Chief Justice Kotze was dismissed by the President under the summary powers of Law 1 of 1897, Mr Gregorowski did not find it inconsistent to accept the office of Chief Justice.
