1820 Settler Correspondence before emigration

ALL the 1819 correspondence from CO48/41 through CO48/46 has been transcribed whether or not the writers emigrated to the Cape. Those written by people who did become settlers, as listed in "The Settler Handbook" by M.D. Nash (Chameleon Press 1987), are labelled 1820 Settler and the names of actual settlers in the text appear in red.

20 August 1819

The Rev. Dr. GOODWIN (curate of the Parish of Ewhurst) begs leave very respectfully to ask for such information as may concern regular and respectable clergymen inclined to retire to the Cape of Good Hope. Dr. G wishes to learn what encouragement would be given to emigrating clergymen? What accommodation and emoluments? What stipends, houses for residence &c&c

The favour of reply would very much oblige

The Rev.Dr. GOODWIN
