baie dankie vir die inligting op hierdie blad. Waardeer julle moeite!

Julle het nie dalk nog inligting oor Charles James Spiller en Catherine Rebecca Madden se ouers onderskeidelik nie?

Vriendelike groete,

Hi, Just wanted to thank you for an incredible resource. Although not an 1820 descendant, I have family members who married into Settler families.

Thanks Paul. Great site. I am still working through it. No Settler family but I am trying to find a family for a friend and think their Progenitor may well be a Settler. He is Andrew Wilson and wife Mary Ann.
Kind regards and best wishes for 2021.

Please advise before Logging In how we can register on your site.

I have had to stop visitors to the website requesting user accounts, as there have been a lot of visitors abusing the process, particularly in the last month. I have also had many requests where the applicant did not respond to “ I will reject any request where I cannot see in the comments any connection to a Settler family, so tell me your connection, and who you really are!” If there was no suitable comment, then I rejected the request.

With a person logging in, it only gave me the benefit of knowing who had logged in and what pages they were visiting, it did not give the user any more information to view than what a normal visitor could see. It also did not allow a logged in user to change or add to the information. Remember, I do this as a hobby, and reserve the right to reject information that falls outside the scope of my hobby. I am also limited by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations on what data I can keep and show. For example, I am not supposed to show any information for any living persons, other than their name, and sometimes that has been questioned as well.

Sorry, but there are some out there who have possibly spoilt it for others.

If you want to update any info, send it to me in an email, and I will add it as before.

Thank you for such an interesting and informative website. I have found a branch of my Lepine (Leppan) family here and it is fascinating to discover that they were among the 1820 settlers.

Fantastic page. Am interested in the family of Arthur Barker and Sarah August. Am trying to prove, or dis-prove connection with a Richard Barker of VDL. Both may hail from Waterford, Ireland. Both were living in London in early 1800's. Arthur Barker was a Malster (Brewer). An Arthur Barker was partners in a brewery in London, with a John Henry Cawthorn (Richard Barker's brother-in-law). Have more connections, but that is the basis. Would love if they were connected. Cheers.

Hi Cat. I read your post. Have you had any feedback on Arthur Barker. I am still trying to ascertain who Arthur's parents were.

Dear Sir
Ref Reed family, Baillee's party.
I have pictures of Sarah Eliza Reed's grave in St Leonards Churchyard, Streatham, London.
She was the wife of Capt John Milbank and died in 1823, aged only 24. So sad.
