Henry Lovemore and his father-in-law Robert Way have been added to the list of Bailie's party for ease of reference, although they separated from the party in England and sailed as independent settlers in different ships. They did not associate themselves with any other party.
Henry Lovemore married 4 times. First marriage was to Sarah Jones on 10 Feb 1803 in St Martins-in-the Field, London, which produced 2 children.Anne Way was his second wife, 8 children.

[undated, but filed with correspondence sent in December 1819]
Having received so great a kindness at your hands before I am quite ashamed to obtrude myself again upon your notice but trust the peculiarity of the favour I have ventured to implore will plead an excuse for the liberty I have taken.
Sir my wife happens to be the only child her father has living, who fancied we were not in earnest in our intention of going to settle at the Cape of Good Hope, but finding we are so, he is greatly distressed at the thought of our going without him.
Sir this is therefore most humbly to intreat your permition to alow him Robert WAY, Charles SHOUBRIDGE and Sarah his wife to accompany us in the Sir George Osborn in which ship Sir you have so kindly alowed myself and family to embark, in doing which you will confer ten thousand favours in one upon Sir
Your verry obliged and verry obedient humble servant
