Hampshire family (Northern Rhodesia)

I'm trying to find more information regarding the Hampshire family who lived in Northern Rhodesia, near the Old Drift and Livingstone, sometime between 1902 - 1920. They had traveled up from Cape Town through Kimberley.

The father's name may have been Alfred Hampshire and his wife Eva. Alfred apparently owned a butcher shop on the opposite side of Victoria Falls Village and was a friend of Percy M. Clark, author of "An Autobiography of an Old Drifter".

At least four of their sons died young, including one named Harold, and were apparently all buried in a pioneer grave in Livingstone among 10 other people. I'm told this event is mentioned in Clark's book but I do not have a copy so I can't say for certain.

After living some years in Northern Rhodesia they eventually moved back to Cape Town.

Any help you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
