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

POLLARD, George - Extra Data


(member of BIGGAR's Party)


Death Notice (Cape Archives) of son George says he was born in Fowey, Cornwall to George POLLARD and Ann WILLINGTON


Cornwall Online Parish Clerk


Possible baptism: George son of George and Susanna POLLARD baptised 21 September 1783 in Mawgan in Meneage, Cornwall.

He was probably related to Elizabeth POLLARD, wife of Henry PEDLAR of Biggar's Party, who was baptised on 17 September 1784 in St.Ive, Cornwall, daughter of John and Mary POLLARD


George POLLARD of Tywardreath married Ann WILLINGTON by Licence on 11 April 1811 in Fowey, Cornwall


Westminster Archives


Mary Ann POLLARD dau of George by Ann baptised 27 May 1812 in St.Margaret's, Westminster (born 1 June 1811)


Death Notice (Cape Archives) of son Thomas Stanhope POLLARD says he was born in London ca August 1813


Cornwall FHS Transcriptions


Lucy Stanhope POLLARD, daughter of George and Ann baptised 19 June 1818 in Fowey, Cornwall

The transcriptions also list a "George Lucy Lane POLLARD", son of George and Ann, also baptised in Fowey on 19 June 1818. I wonder if in fact there were three children, George, Lucy and Jane, baptised together. I haven't been able to view the original.
