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

WENTWORTH, William - Extra Data


(member of CLARK's Party)


(see correspondence of John TAYLOR)


London Metropolitan Archives:


William Potter, son of Mary WENTWORTH, base born St.Dunstan Workhouse, baptised 22 February 1786 in St.Dunstan in the West.


William WENTWORTH, bachelor, married Frances Maria PAICE, spinster, on 1 November 1819 in St.Matthew, Bethnal Green

Both signed their names.

Witnesses: Marianne WILKINSON and Francis LEE


Although this marriage lists William as a bachelor, it seems likely that his son William, aged 13 in The Settler Handbook, was from a previous marriage.
