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

There are two baptisms for a Robert STOCK, both on the same page of baptisms for St.Laurence in Thanet. The first is the son of William and Elizabeth STOCK, born 8 January and baptised 5 February 1797. and the other is the son of Robert and Mary STOCK, born 27 April and baptised 28 April 1797. They were presumably cousins.
