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.

TUDOR, Charles, 1820 Settler

National Archives, Kew CO48/46, 119

7 Circus Street

Liverpool

Sept 22 1819

My Lord,

I take the liberty of addressing your Lordship on the subject of inquiry respecting the manner in which I am to proceed in placing the deposit money in the hands of a proper agent as Mr. WHITLEY in this town wants £1:0:0 per head over the stated sum of which I should pay before departure. And I would consider it a great favour if your Lordship in answer would let me know whether he (Mr.W) is the agent of Government in this town, as he does not inform us who we are to pay the deposit money to, nor in whose hands to place it, but the £1:0:0 above stated he wants for himself. He styles himself Messrs WHITLEY & Co No. 3 School Lane Liverpool and a petty public house where he is to be seen or resides.

I am my Lord

Your Lordship's most obedient and very humble servant

Charles TUDOR
