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.

16 July 1819


I am by profession a miller and farmer aged 30 with a wife and two children wishing to emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope, or the dependent settlements proposed, I should be happy to avail myself of any assistance His Majesty's Government may be pleased to afford.

I am Sir your humble obedient servant

William KNOLD
