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.

TAYLOR, Charles

My Lord,

The writer of the following lines is a young man of respectability who wishes to emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope and would feel himself particularly obliged if your Lordship would inform him the particulars.

I remain your Lordship's obedient humble servant

Charles TAYLOR
