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

LOVEMORE, Henry - Extra Data


(member of BAILIE's Party)


London Metropolitan Archives


Henry LOVEMORE of this parish married Ann WAY of the parish of St. Paul, Covent Garden by Licence on 14 June 1812 in St.James, Piccadilly.

Both signed their names

Witnesses: Robert WAY and M. WAY


Robert WAY was Henry LOVEMORE's father-in-law (see notes for Robert WAY)


Robert Henry, son of Henry and Anne LOVEMORE, Brewer Street, wine merchant, baptised 26 May 1814 in St.James, Piccadilly

Baptisms in St.Bride's, Fleet:

Ann, daughter of Henry and Ann LOVEMORE, Bride Lane, victualler, baptised 19 February 1817 (appears as Nancy in The Settler Handbook)

Maria, daughter of Henry and Ann LOVEMORE, Bride Lane, victualler, baptised 4 February 1818

Sophia Remnant, daughter of Henry and Ann LOVEMORE, Mabledon Place, Burton Crescent, victualler, baptised 19 December 1819


Although the marriage of Henry LOVEMORE to Ann WAY does not state his condition, it seems likely that he was a widower and that his daughter Eliza LOVEMORE was from a previous marriage.


Henry LOVEMORE, married Sarah JONES on 10 February 1803 in St.Martin in the Fields, Westminster.
