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

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 https://www.1820settlers.com/

JARMAN, Thomas (COCK's Party) - Extra Data

 

(member of COCK's Party)

 

Death Notice (Cape Archives) suggests that he was born ca 1791

 

Letters from his mother written in 1821 and 1823 suggest that the family came from the Bishopsgate area of London and that her name was possibly Mary (Ann).
