Arthur George Hulme Tyndale was born in London in 1848.

He emigrated to the Cape Colony and eventually settled at East London where he took over the firm J Stroyan & Company, landing and shipping agents, wool pressers and produce agents.

He was elected to the Town Council in February 1890 for Ward 2 but resigned in September that year on account of ill-health.

Tyndale died of cancer of the oesophagus and gastronomy on 14 December 1890 while in London. He was 42 years old.
