1820 Settler Farm allocations

1820 Settler Allocated Farms

The map below gives a very close indication of the Land that was allocated to each settler party, based on the size of the party and number of 'men' per 100 acres.
Unfortunately I have no co-ordinate information on the locations of Pringle's party at Baviaan's River or the Clanwilliam allocations, so they are not included at this time.

The farms are outlined in various colours, and their positions are based on various other maps and books. Numbering of the first 55 is based on The Settler Handbook, page 10, and the Colonial Department list. Numbers 56 onwards are in no particular order, other than how I created the outlines.
Hovering your mouse over them will pop-up a description. You can also zoom, as this is based on Google Maps.
Switch between Map and Satellite views to get an idea of the terrain! Scroll the map around to cover all areas.

Use the Print link (top right next to Bookmark) to be able to print or save what is on screen to a pdf for later printing.
The Blue pins indicate towns or places of interest. Hovering on the Pin will give a description of that location.
