Aug 1819 - Dec 1819 Richardson's party application & Boarding 'Stentor'

On 18 August 1819 Jas. Richardson wrote to Lord Sidmouth, Secretary of State for the Home Department, asking for passages to South Africa for himself and family and for others, of whom Richard was one, on the ship 'Stentor'.

"James Richardson - Corndealer aged 25 Sarah 29 Elizth 12 Martha 8 Emma 3 James 8 John 4 Richd. Hully - Farmer 34 Ann 33 Richard 9 Frances 1 Ann 6 Sarah 4 William Clayton - Farmer 32 Judith 30 John 7 Ann 5 Elizth 3 George Clayton - Farmer 29 Elizabeth 30 William Denton Labourer 26 Mary 26 William 1 Charles Denton Labourer 38 Hannah 39 Ann 13 Next page F682 rev Luke Welch Farmer 25 Mary 30 Jonathan Kenedy Farmer 24 Joshua Mosly Cutler 20 John Bradshaw Cutler 24 Richard Noon Farmer 21 The above Named Persons are now on Board the Stentor. I Remain your Lordship Most Obedient Humble Servant J. Richardson December 25th 1819."

The following information, and extracts, from G.E.Cory's 'Rise of South Africa', Vol II, enables us to follow their progress. "In July , 1819, the House of Commons granted a sum of £50 000 for the purpose of enabling the Government to assist persons who were disposed to settle at the Cape....'the Colonial Office was deluged with applications for further information.'

On 18th August, 1819, Jas. Richardson wrote from Heartshead, Sheffield, to Lord Sidmouth, Secretary of State for the Home Department, asking for a passage for himself, his wife, and four children. 'In answer to these applications a printed circular was sent. It specified the conditions under which free passages to South Africa would be granted. 'The following are excerpts: 'the government have determined to confine the application of the money recently voted...to those persons who possessing means will engage to carry out at the least ten able-bodied individuals above eighteen years of age, with or without families...A grant of land ...shall be made to him at the rate of One Hundred Acres for every such person or Family whom he takes out. '

Jas. Richardson would have thus had to find at least 8 other adults to join himself and his wife, and his second letter acknowledged reply to his first, and gave a further list of emigrants. (Some heads of parties were men of means who took out indentured labourers, while others were simply the first in their area to apply and gathered others of their group through personal contact or by advertising a meeting for those interested. It is not known to which type Jas. Richardson belonged.) Altogether 57 parties of settlers were formed, mainly from the south of England, while others were from the north of England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.

'A number of small vessels of about 500 tons were chartered by the Navy Board, and for the greater convenience of the emigrants were arranged to be at ports which were as near as possible to the parts of the country from which the greater numbers came. Eight ships sailed from Deptford in the Thames, three from Portsmouth, one from Bristol, two from Cork in Ireland, and at Liverpool three ships, the Stentor, the John and the Albury took emigrants from the north of England and Wales.

Jas. Richardson's third letter from Liverpool, dated December 1819, stated that several men had not come forward and requested to substitute others on the Stentor, enclosing a complete list of his party of 11 men, 8 women, 17 children, (36 in all) that included Richard Hulley, aged 34, his wife Ann, aged 33, and 4 children, Richard, 9; Ann, 6; Sarah, 4; and Francis 1 year. Thus apart form the Richardson family and the Hulley family there were 9 men, 6 women and 9 children, indicating 6 other families and 3 single men who may have been sons over the age of 18. This was one of the 20 or so smaller parties of emigrants.

The parties who sailed on the Stentor were: Richardson's (Yorkshire) 11 men, 8 women 17children, total 36 Lt Griffiths (Wales) 22 9 10 41 Neaves 12 4 3 19 Smith, G. (Lancashire) 21 15 35 71 White (Nottingham) 12 4 11 27 194 On the John were: Hayhurst's (Lancs) 34 23 50 107 Liversage's (Staffs) 11 8 39 48 Mouncey's (Yorks) 12 11 18 41 Stanley (Lancs) 11 6 15 32 Wainwright (Yorks) 11 4 9 24 252 On the Albury were: Dr Carlton's (Notts) 60 34 73 167 ('In Nottinghamshire the Duke of Newcastle moved enthusiastically on behalf of the poor of that county...a committee was formed and contributions raised. In honour of the Duke this party was afterwards known as the Clumber or Nottingham party')."

13 Jan 1820 - 15 May 1820 Sailed to Algoa Bay

Richardson's Party, sailed aboard the Stentor from Liverpool on 13 January 1820 and arrived in Table Bay three months later on 19 April 1820 and then transferred to the HM Store Ship Weymouth and arrived at Algoa Bay on 15 May 1820.

from G.E.Cory's 'Rise of South Africa', Vol II: "Beyond a vague intention of dispatching these vessels in pairs with about a week or a fortnight intervening between each departure, there do not appear to have been any definite dates fixed for the sailing if any of them. This created considerable inconvenience and trouble to the emigrants. In some cases people arrived on board before provision had been made to receive them, and on account of the severity of the weather, experienced great discomfort. When Stanley's party, for instance, embarked on the John at Liverpool, there was no bedding or blankets and a week elapsed before these necessities could be provided. During that time the men had to make themselves as comfortable as they could on the bare boards with the thermometer 14 degrees below freezing point, while the women and children (three of whom were ill) had to find shelter and food on shore at Mr Stanley's expense.' There was much delay in dispatching the vessels after all were on board and anxious to start. In some cases parties had to spend weeks on the anchored ship before the final preparations to sail were made. (Partly due to very bad weather - the Thames was blocked with ice). The Nautilus was the first ship to sail, from Deptford on Dec 5th, followed by the Chapman on 9th Dec. During the ensuing six weeks, all the vessels sailed. (The date of sailing of the Stentor is not given, but the Stentor and the John arrived on the same day at the Cape, four weeks after the Chapman. It is possible therefore, that they sailed together from Liverpool on about the 7th January.) The Albury arrived at the Cape 12 days after the Stentor and the John, so may have sailed later.

The ships that sailed in December and early January experienced very stormy weather until after the Bay of Biscay, when the weather became calm and sunny. Some ships called at the Cape Verde islands for water, fruit and vegetables, and all may have done so. There was considerable sickness on most of the transports, with measles and whooping cough prevalent on most.

The Chapman arrived in Simon's Bay at the Cape on March 17th, after a voyage of three months and 7 days, and the Stentor and the John arrived on 19th April, followed by the Albury on May 1st. The ships took on provisions and water, although only the heads of parties were allowed ashore.


The Stentor was withdrawn from service while at Simon's Bay, and the emigrants transshipped into the Weymouth, which was the next ship to arrive in Simon's Bay on April 26th, with 299 emigrants from Portsmouth. The reason for this withdrawal of the Stentor was probably the fact that three parties on board her, and one party from the Weymouth, landed in Simon's Bay, for Sir Rufane Donkin decided to send some of the newcomers to the Zonder End River, about 70 miles from Cape Town in the direction of Swellendam. The parties for the Zonder End were: Major T.C. White (Notts) from the Stentor 27 persons Lt Griffiths (Wales) “ “ “ 41 persons Mr Neave “ “ “ 19 persons Capt D. Campbell (Hants) “ “ Weymouth? 28 persons (The parties at the Zonder End were later resettled in the Eastern Province, as there was not enough land available for their grants).

The remaining 107 persons on the Stentor joined the 271 left on the Weymouth for the voyage to Algoa Bay. Description of the Weymouth store ship, from Cmdt. Holden Bowker by T. Mitford Barberton: 'She had seen better days and had been a frigate, but had been taken out of the fleet and turned into a transport or troop ship. She was, however, commanded by a set of Regular Officers and crew, but in reduced number. She still had some few guns on board and looked like a ship of war.' The Weymouth arrived in Algoa Bay on 10th May, 1820, after what must have been a voyage of about 7 days from Simon's Bay. Quotation from Thomas Pringle, in the Brilliant: 'Coasting in this manner, we at length doubled Cape Recife on the 15th (May) and late in the afternoon came to an anchor in Algoa Bay, in the midst of a little fleet of vessels, which had just landed or were engaged in landing, their respective bands of settlers. The Menai sloop of war and the Weymouth storeship were moored beside the transports, and their crews, together with a party of military on shore, were employed in assisting the debarkation.'

May 1820 Ox wagon Journey to Albany

Wagons then conveyed them to their allocated location on the right bank of the George River in Albany, Cape Province. Richard & Anne settled in the Clumber area of the Albany District on the farm "Claxton", near Grahamstown. Five more children were born in SA.

from G.E.Cory's 'Rise of South Africa', Vol II: 'The convoy (of ox-wagons), which included the Bowkers and other parties from the Weymouth , travelled through Jager's Drift on the Bushman's River, Paarde Drift on the Kariega, via the Mission Station at Theopolis, and Rietfontein (corrupted by the settlers to Redverteen) and on to the mouth of the Kowie River. When the settler convoys crossed the Kowie it was wide and shallow, with two or three sandbanks...' (from Comdt. Holden Bowker).

Extracts from the 'Lower Albany Chronicle' compiled by E. Morse Jones (1964) : 19.06.20: Miles Bowker and William Menzies moved over the Kariega River into Lower Albany by Paarde Drift and down to Theopolis Mission. 30.06.20: Bowker's party was on its location next above Richardson's.

It had been originally suggested that 'the Parties arriving from the three parts of the United Kingdom should be located separately to guard against all interference and dispute...' (Cory). Because of the transshipment to the Weymouth, Richardson's Yorkshire group and G. Smith's Lancashire group were located next to the Bowker's, Rymans and Fords from the Weymouth and must have travelled in the same wagon convoy from Algoa Bay. However, when Richard Hulley got title in 1847 to a piece of land 'Caxton', it was situated next to the parties of Wainwright and Mouncey, both from Yorkshire, who travelled out in the John. The location of Richardson's party was bounded on the east by the George (Riet) River, and the southern boundary was about one mile from the sea, being the next inland to Geo. Smith's location on the coast."

  • Extract from the Title deeds granted to Richard, the settler.‘I do hereby grant unto Richard Hulley a piece of land, containing six hundred and ninety four morgen situated in the Division of Albany, being a portion of the location of Cawood’s party bounded on the North east by the Cap River, South by Wainwright’s, Mauncey’s and Mandy’s Party, and in the North West by David Cawood’s, William Gradwell and Robert Kilbrook’s.’ 23rd day of June 1847 (Signed by) Sir Henry Pottinger, Governor of the Cape of Good Hope [Kap River Co-ordinates approximate -33.419226, 26.981977 Sharon April 2017]

Received title on the farm 'Caxton' to which he got title on 23 June 1847. - Depot: Cory Library for Historical Research Type: Manuscript Ref: MS6644 Description: Richard Hulley. Remarks: 2 items. MS + Printed (Photocopy) + TS. Summary: + Title deeds to land on his location in Cawood's party.

His son Joseph was managing the farm and eventually took it over, with his father living with him. Charlotte Ann Miskin, born Hulley, wrote to me saying “our home was his home, where as a child I remember him being dressed as an English gentleman. From us he spent years with his daughter Sarah - Mrs William Cawood - in Cradock

1854 Second attempts to get money out of estate in Chancery

Richard was alleged to be no businessman or workman. He found providing for his increasing family hard. He returned to England twice, the second time in 1854, to get hold of his legendary fortune in Chancery, but without success. The last time, it is said, on the eve of his departure, at a farewell party, his lawyers handed him a letter concerning the entitled estate, which he casually slipped into his coat pocket. This was only discovered, still unopened, some six months later, on his return to South Africa.

The late Mrs D du Toit stated that she heard from her mother, Mrs Daniel Hulley, who followed the family history carefully about the entailed estate; In her early days she knew that a solicitor wrote to Richard concerning the estate and offering to secure it on condition that the entail was broken and the solicitor got half the estate. Nothing was done in this matter. Later Richard Brangan the eldest son of Richard approached his own eldest and his grandson Ernest, who by this time was 21, to agree to break the entail but one or other refused and nothing was done. Richard (Chum) Hulley writes: I know that Richard B. during the latter years of his life received a letter from a firm of lawyers offering their services to obtain the release of the property from Chancery. Richard passed this letter on to his eventual heir, William, but nothing came of it. The name of the property entailed was “Essex”. The first farm Richard B. owned was given the same name. It was situated in Mount Frere district of the Transkei. It was held by the family until the death of the last owner, who was an old maid daughter of William. It later fell into the Native Area demarcation imposed by the Native Land Act of 1913 and its amendments. Years later Ernest Hulley called on his uncle Daniel Hulley for advice on how to proceed to obtain possession of the entailed property but Daniel was not in a position to offer any constructive advice. There the matter rested. Afterwards Samuel Hulley of Barberton, not to be beaten, the third son of Joseph and of that Group, offered to go to England to attempt recovery of the entailed property. If successful the recovered estate was to be divided amongst the six sons of Richard or their heirs. By this time William had died and Ernest’s eldest son was not of age so nothing could be done.

A letter written by William Hulley of Holmsfield, Sheffield in 1911 establishes that one Joseph Hulley of Sheffield had a brother who went to South Africa around 1916/1917 and that this brother, Richard indicated, visited England in 1854 when William saw him and Richard tried to persuade him, William, to accompany him to South Africa but William preferred to remain in England.

Another assertion in a letter asserts that Richard. had an only brother Christopher, who died in 1849 without children. This man is alleged to have left a valuable estate which his widow inherited. She is alleged to have married again, and very well too, which meant the estate went with her.

There are uncorroborated references to two alleged sisters of Richard, they being Lady Lydia Rich and Tamson MacNamara. Their names are recorded in case they should be authenticated later.

Lived with daughter Sarah Cawood at Cradock where he died aged 99 years 10 months and was buried in the local cemetery by the Rev E. Gedys on 12th March, 1880.” On his tombstone was engraved his crest, the 'Crossed Rose Leaves'
