Transcribed by volunteers from the ZA-IB and ZA-EC Rootsweb mailing lists from digital photographs taken by Sue Mackay, Rowena Wattrus, Tessa King and others at The National Archives in Kew, London.
The original correspondence is filed in order of receipt. Here it has been placed in alphabetical order according to the surname of the writer, with letters by the same writer in chronological order, for ease of reading. Original spelling has been maintained.

Letters were either addressed to Lord BATHURST, Secretary of State for the Colonies, (starting My Lord), or to his deputy Henry GOULBURN (starting Sir).Reference numbers, where given, refer to printed page numbers stamped on the letters and will enable visitors to The National Archives to locate the letter more easily.If a page number is not given then the date of the letter will give a good idea of its whereabouts in the file.

Names in red in the letters actually became 1820 settlers to South Africa, as listed in The Settler Handbook by M.D. Nash, not necessarily with the Party listed here.
