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.

SEARLS, Edward, 1820 Settler

National Archives, Kew CO48/45, 1098

[Undated notation by Richard PENN, the name G (or E) SEARLES is pencilled at the top of the page]

Sir James COCKBURN is very desirous that this proposal should be accepted. He knows the man to be a very fit person.

[Transcriber's Note: This list appears in isolation – there does not appear to be an accompanying letter, neither is any date evident, but it is attached to the note above. In the interests of presentation, the list has been tabulated, but in the original the author has made liberal use of curly brackets. The name here is clearly SEARLS. This is probably the settler Edward SEARLE of SEPHTON's Party, even although some details are different from those in The Settler Handbook, as John TALBOT, Thomas YOUNGS and George HOWE were members of that party. Nash lists him as SEARLE and Hockly as SEARL. There was also an Edward SEARLE who sailed on the Duke of Marlborough with DANIELL's Party]
