William Brown was listed as embarking and disembarking. He was a gardener aged 22 ie born 1797.
Possibly the man baptised 25.7.1797 at Old Swinford, Worcestershire, the son of William and Elizabeth Brown (4.7 miles from Dudley)

He does not show up in any of the possible South African sources online such as Destination Albany,
the registers of St George’s Cathedral Grahamstown (checked up to about 1840),
the registers of St Johns, Bathurst and King Williamstown and the Winterberg,
the Probate records for the Cape, NAAIRS records for all of the Provinces.
He is also conspicuously absent from any attempt by descendants to create records on for example Geni,
where quite a number of 1820 Settler entries have been created.
The impression is that it is possible that these are more examples of men who decided at the last moment to drop out.
Men using their names certainly embarked and disembarked at the Cape.
