Additonal Information

This is pre 1820 information mainly taken from actual images of UK parish registers and other primary sources which I have personally researched. Further information about the settlers and their families once they reached the Cape can be found at

Cheshire Archives and Local Studies


Mary daughter of George and Catherine ASHBROOK baptised 22 November 1812 in Rostherne, Cheshire (born 26 October)

Eliza daughter of George and Catherine ASHBROOK, Tanner, Appleton, baptised 11 December 1814 in Grappenhall, Cheshire (born 12 November)



See letter from George ASHBROOK in John STANLEY's 1820 correspondence. It seems clear that George and his family did not sail to the Cape but left the ship in Liverpool.
