Irish Settlers to the Cape

Author : Graham B Dickason
Publisher : A A Balkema, Cape Town
First Published : 1973
Hard Cover pages
ISBN :

Summary: A History of the Clanwilliam Settlers from Cork Harbour. The 1820 Irish parties of Parker, Butler, Ingram, & Synnot were diverted from the Eastern Cape by acting governor Sir Rufane Shaw Donkin on account of the number of settlers arriving vastly exceeding those expected and provided for. Arrangements were made to settle the Irish parties in Clanwilliam in the Western Cape. This led to a crisis of confidence in the settler leadership, contributing to the collapse of the Clanwilliam settlement and the dispersion of the settlers. Some regrouped and moved to the intended destination of Albany. Preliminary chapters on the situation pertaining in Ireland, England, & Europe prior to emigration and another of the emigration scheme and assembly of the four parties.
Brief outline biographies of the settlers, amended lists of settlers, and appendix on the author's settler forebear, Robert Dickason, and his children.
