HMS Weymouth - Log and Muster

HMS Weymouth

The Weymouth was used to transport 11 parties of 1820 settlers from Portsmouth to Algoa Bay (Port Elizabeth). Such passenger lists as remain are in the Cape Archives but listings taken from their holdings, as well as a lot of background information on the emigration scheme and further details about many of the settlers, can be found in ‘The Settler Handbook’ by M.D.Nash, Chameleon Press 1987(ISBN 0 620 10940 8), available from the Albany Museum, Somerset Street, Grahamstown 6139, South Africa. The National Archives at Kew, London, hold the captain’s log (ADM51/3543) and the second master’s log (ADM52/4655) as well as the ship’s muster roll. At first sight the two logs seem identical but there are subtle differences in the information they contain. Below are transcriptions of the captain’s log (ADM51/3543) and the muster roll for 1820 (ADM37/6146)

The National Archives, Kew, London

The following is a transcript of the muster roll for HMS Weymouth taken from ADM37/6146 at the National Archives, Kew, London. Names appear in the same order as on the list, ie not alphabetically but presumably as they lined up to have their names taken. Most first names were abbreviated using a superscript, but I have used an inverted comma to precede any superscript letter(s).

D=discharged
DD=discharged dead
