About Catherine Mary Lloyd

Catherine aged 9 years old, travelled with her father (Henry Lloyd, 36, a Harness maker), mother (Alicia Mary Whittle, 27) and siblings Francesca Lloyd (6yrs) Henry Lloyd (4yrs) and Samuel Lloyd (2yrs), as part of Willson's party (the ship crew) on the La Belle Alliance, from The Downs, Deal, Kent, England on the 12 Feb 1820. The party was led by Thomas Willson, an architect and commercial agent of Bridge Cottage, Chelsea Water Works, London. Willson was given permission to take out one of the four largest settler parties, consisting of 100 able-bodied men and their families.This was a joint-stock party, recruited by advertisement, and served to absorb the remnants of smaller parties whose applications had been rejected or whose numbers had diminished. Many of these men were London tradesmen.

Although most of the party were 'free' settlers who paid their own deposits, there were not many among them whom their contemporaries would have classed as 'gentlemen'. Several men, however, were sufficiently well-off to take servants with them: the Wilmots employed four servants, as did Collis; Cock, Currie and Willson each employed three; and Bisset, Lloyd, John Smith, Webb and the Rev William Boardman had one servant each.

Deposits were paid for 102 men and their families, and the party boarded La Belle Alliance at Deptford. After more than a month's delay before leaving the ice-bound Thames, the ship sailed from the Downs on 12 February 1820, arriving in Table Bay on 2 May and Simon's Bay three days later.

Possible connection:

'Another Lloyd girl married - Bremner, a banker to Queen Victoria's father. He lived in Piccadilly and persuaded his brothers and sisters-in-law to invest in his bank. The bank failed, but he remained a rich man until his death. Settler Henry Lloyd was a wealthy ship ow ner, but lost most of his money in the Napoleonic wars when five of his ships were captured. He, however, managed to save several thousand pounds which he brought with him. At one time he owned extensive property at Green Point, Cape Town, where he planted a vineyard, but this was a failure. Settler Henry Lloyd's mother had her own fortune, but part of this was lost in Bremner's Bank and part in the bank of Sir Matthew Bloxem. Her husband Col. Samuel Whittle died fro m wounds received in battle, but she was left a wealthy woman. Grandfather Lloyd, presumably the father of the Settler, was private secretary to Lord Mansfield, and at the time of the riots in England he saved some valuable papers, for which he received a pension of £500 a year for life. He never wore a great-coat in his life, nor changed his style of dr ess from his youth, which was knee-breeches, silk stocki ngs, silver buckles on his shoes and a powdered wig - and he lived to the age of 84.
