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

BALL, William - Extra Data


(member of BAILIE's Party)


London Metropolitan Archives


William son of William and Martha BALL was baptised on 30 November 1788 in St.Ann, Blackfriars (actually St.Andrew by the Wardrobe)


From "Bailie's Party of 1820 Settlers" by M.D.Nash.

A single man from London with an army pension of 5d per day, BALL emigrated as an indentured servant to J.C. CHASE, and was located with BAILIE's subdivision of the party at The Hope. He left CHASE's service in September 1821 and applied for permission to return to England on grounds of ill-health.
