|Settler Handbook Content:||No. 5 on the Colonial Department list, led by Charles Gurney, a druggist of Brewers Street, Deal, Kent. This was a joint-stock party originally made up almost entirely of young single men, boatmen of Deal, who were 'desirous of being settled near the sea coast' in order to combine fishing with farming. As the party was finally constituted, however, it included men of a variety of trades, three of them married men with their wives.
