According to K-G Olin's book "Afrikafeber" (2000) ISBN:952-9600-10-0, one Mattias Knuts, farmer's son, born 1885 got a passport October 31st 1905 for Africa for five years.

And:

Mattias Knuts, age 20, bought a ticket from Hangö in Finland to Capetown for 340 FIM. He sailed with the Urania November 15th 1905.

There is no data about their families in the book.
