James Heenan was a Trooper who served in the Boer War. He was a local from Cumberland Street, the son of a settler, Mr Denis Heenan, who came to Otago on the Mary in 1849 (followed by his parents, Denis and Joanna, and his eleven siblings who arrived in 1850 aboard the Mariner).
James was occupied as a clerk before he enlisted in the Fourth Contingent and left for Africa in March of 1900. This contingent was raised and paid for by Dunedin citizens and was known as the ‘Rough Riders’, a collection of marksmen and good horsemen.
