Nottinghamshire 1820 Settlers
Rob Smith has donated transcriptions made of correspondence to, about and from settlers in the Nottinghamshire contingent of the 1820 settlers which he has gathered while researching for his book Nottinghamshire Settlers and Locations in the Eastern Cape of Good Hope (Footprint Press, Hermanus, Western Cape).
Most of the correspondence was addressed to Edward Smith GODFREY, Clerk of the Peace for Nottinghamshire, who was in charge of the selection of the Nottinghamshire settlers on the emigration scheme. He was assisted by the Rev. J.T. BECHER of Southwell.
These are now available on the 1820 Settlers section of the eGGSA web site.
