Cape Town is the City
Cape Province is the province. Cape Colony is an older term, historical name
for the area. The borders probably were more limited than the later
province.
Other provinces until recently were Natal, Orange Free State and Transvaal.
Johannesburg was in Transvaal.
Since apartheid died there are many areas with African names.

Hope this helps,

PS I am researching Miller/Maller and see you are quite active on tha
list.

Is Cape Colony the same as Cape Town or is one a part of the other?
