About Elizabeth Vice, SM/PROG




No. 9 on the Colonial Department list, led by John Henry Dixon, a joiner and cabinetmaker of 8 Mutton Lane, Mile End Road, London. This was a joint-stock party made up of London tradesmen, all married men with families. No recommendation for this party has been traced in Colonial Department records to account for its selection, but Dixon's assurance that he was 'stout made and healthy' is unlikely to have been recommendation enough on its own.

Deposits were paid for 11 men, and the party embarked at Deptford in the regular transport shipOcean, sailing from Portsmouth on New Year's Day 1820, and arriving in Table Bay on 29 March and Algoa Bay on 15 April. Two children were born and two died during the voyage. The party was located at Waaiplaats on the Kaffir Kraal river. George Marsden subsequently attached himself to Dalgairns' party.
