Charles Caney with his brothers Val and Gus, owned one of the first retail jewellery stores in Durban, founded by his father in 1860. Charlie and his brothers were born in the three story building in West Street where the "Caneys" jeweller thrived for over a hundred years, celebrating its Centenary in November 1960. The top story was removed after a time as it was found to sway in the wind and was pronounced dangerous. Charles's wife, Helen was claimed to be the first woman driver in Durban.
