|Settler Handbook Content:||No. 26 on the Colonial Department list, led by John Ingram, a merchant of 10 Grand Parade, Cork, Ireland. This was a proprietary party, recruited in Cork; the men were articled to Ingram for three years, and each was to receive 10 acres of land or £10 in money at the termination of his service. Ingram undertook to provide food for his men and their families and to pay a cash wage of 6d a day for a labourer and 1 shilling a day for a mechanic or skilled worker. (Pierce, Agnew, Foster, Gerald Begley, Bennett, Coffee, Crowley, Callaghan and Reardon came into the latter category.) In submitting his application, Ingram was supported by Admiral Sir J Colpoy of St. James Place, London, and named as additional references his relation Sir Benjamin Bloomfield (the Prince Regent's private secretary), the Bishop of Ferns and the Member of Parliament for Cork, Sir Nicholas Colthurst. Ingram claimed that he was a man of good education who had inherited considerable capital but ruined himself by working for Sir Nicholas' election in order to keep out the Catholic parliamentary candidate; the inhabitants of Cork had since boycotted his business because of his strong anti-Papist views.
