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 http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/

Benjamin's correspondence mentions 10 children, but only four are listed in The Settler Handbook, confirmed by the muster roll of HMS Weymouth (ADM37/6145 National Archives, Kew). Nash speculates in The Settler Handbook that “Joseph RICHARDS” was actually a son of Benjamin, in which case “Sally” (3) and “Phillis” (1) could be the two youngest siblings. There is no Susanna OSLER listed on the muster roll but Nash supposes that “Sally RICHARDS” is in fact Susannah OSLER. There is a Submitted IGI entry for a Susanna OSLER, daughter of Benjamin and Jane, born 15 November 1799 in Falmouth. Julia may have died in infancy.
