About Richard David Claringbould


Richard (aged 23) arrived at the South African coast on HM Store Ship Weymouth, which left Portsmouth on 7 January 1820. At their own request, Gurney's people were embarked at the Downs. The Weymouth reached Table Bay on 26 April and Algoa Bay on 15 May. The party was located near Port Elizabeth, west of the Zwartkops River mouth, and named the location New Deal (today an industrial area).

Richard and another settler John Darby was granted free passage back to England at the end of 1820 to fetch three whale boats for a fishery to be established at Port Elizabeth.
