Surname HOOD

First Name Thomas Samuel

Notes1820 British Settler who emigrated to the Eastern Cape area of South Africa

SourceThe Settlers Handbook by MD Nash

The first traces I found is his marriage with Mary Ann Hockley in 1828 in Albany/Grahamstown. Anybody who has information confirming him being a 1820 Settler?
He was sent by the Londen Mission Society to SA as a schoolmaster later becoming a missionary.

I am trying to find information about Edwin Hood (born approx 1885 in the Cape Province) who married Frances Gilstain in the Eastern Cape and I think he may be related to Thomas Samuel Hood

A Thomas Samuel Hood was an 1820 Settler on the ship Brilliant with the Gush Party - he was shown to be a fruiterer and was born in 1799

Thanks Debbie, I came across the fruiterer as well. Any relationship between him and Thomas Samuel
(Rev. Thomas Samuel Hood, SV/PROG)
must still be determined.
I also found another Thomas Hood in the Cape Town Archives. He was a chemist in Worcester.

Thanks Alastair, I subsequently found lots of information about him in the London Mission Society journals, but still lacks arrival information which I will pursue now.

The Settler Handbook by Marjorie Diane (Dee) Nash indicated T S Hood as a fruiterer
South African Settlers Resource Site gives his occupation as missionary.
He is my wife's second great grandfather and our information is that he was a schoolmaster working for the London Mission Society and was only ordained later in his life while working at Avontuur ( souces all listed under 'About me")
Both sources Hood was born in 1799.
Are they different Hoods or the same person?
Any ideas about the conflicting occupations i.e. fruiterer and schoolmaster?
