GSSAThe 1820 Settler Correspondence
 as preserved in the National Archives, Kew
 and edited by Sue Mackay

Additonal Information

This is pre 1820 information mainly taken from actual images of parish registers held at the London Metropolitan Archives, Westminster Archives, West Yorkshire Archives, Manchester Central Library, non-conformist registers at the National Archives at Kew (RG4), online parish registers at CityArk or from original images at Family Search. I have also included some information from original images of Scottish old parish registers and English parish records which I have personally researched. Where reference is made to the London Gazette, the full version can be downloaded from

FINAUGHTY, Lucy - Extra Data


(member of WAIT's Party)


Lucy emigrated as the wife of Henry ULYATE. Her maiden name was MOULS/MOLES and she was married to William FINAUGHTY, a London greengrocer. Three of their children sailed to the Cape as the stepchildren of Henry ULYATE. It looks as if William was still alive when she had children with Henry ULYATE, as no marriage has been found and their children were baptised with the surname FINAUGHTY and the middle name ULYATE.
