Foy's late wife Marinella, a descendant from the early British settlers and directly from Dugald McPhail who was a founder of the town of Dundee, a survivor from the Battle of Isandhlwana and on the British side in the Anglo Boer War. Marinella founded the Penny Farthing Country House from where the tours are conducted and was in her own right well read and knowledgeable of South African history.
