Summary of Thornhill's Party

The leader of the party was Christopher THORNHILL from Durham. He had 16 men under him, and sailed on the ship Zoroaster, which embarked in DEC 1819, then left Gravesend, then left Downs on 12 FEB 1820 for South Africa. The ship reached Simon's Bay on 30 APR 1820.

The ship also carried the parties DYASON and WAIT and was chartered to sail to Simon's Bay only; therefore the settlers had to be transshipped via the ship Albury to Algoa Bay which they reached on 15 MAY 1820.

THORNHILL and his party were located between the Kowie and Rufane Rivers and named the settlement Thornhill.

William BROOKS and his family arrived with the THORNHILL party in Algoa Bay.
