Hi Coral,

Please tell me what the Morse-Jones Roll is?
I am trying to establish an origin in the UK for the KIDWELL couple, Alex
and Phebe, who sailed from Bristol in the Holder party, which was apparently
organised in Bristol.
The Colonial Office documents held in the Cape Archives shed no light this
query, neither does Nash.
A new (to me) source of information would be more than welcome.

Regards, Brian.

Morse-Jones' Roll of 1820 Settler Part 1 up to 1826 - there is mention of a
George WILKINSON, 1791 - ? (and the narrative:) He led a party of
Settlers sailing in "Amphitrite" in 1819.

Essex by George Wilkinson, a division of five of them being led by John
Morton. They sailed in "Amphitrite" and were located together on the Blaauw
Krantz River, the location being called New Essex. There, John Fournier
directed another division.
