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,

I am a Clergyman, twenty five years of age, of good family & am provided with the highest testimonials for morality and ability as a preacher; an unhappy domestic calamity has made me desirous of leaving England for some years, and I make this application to your Lordship to solicit a clerical appointment in that Colony.

I have the honour to be your Lordship's humble servant

Revd Nathaniel H. ARTHY
