The 1820 Settler Correspondence
 as preserved in the National Archives, Kew
 and edited by Sue Mackay

pre 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.

My Lord,

Having it in contemplation to emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope upon the terms proposed by Government and being informed that by application to your Lordship I might obtain a copy of the circular containing these terms, I beg to inform your Lordship that such copy with any other information it is proper to communicate would much oblige, my Lord

Your Lordhip's most obedient servant
