Private settler parties
● Duke of Marlborough
...arrived on the same day as the Sir George Osborne - 18 Jun 1820, which Nash says was the last of the ships to arrive. Generally those that fell outside the terms of the government emigration scheme (those on the Salisbury, for example,) were financed by party heads who undertook to pay their own expenses and see to the maintenance of the settlers in their parties) still received grants of land. Nash only lists one party, DANIELL's, on the Duke of Marlboro: no Wentworth is mentioned. Rootsweb reference
- Dr. Charles Augustus Wentworth who sailed on The Duke of Marlborough, from Portsmouth as an 'individual settler' to be the House Surgeon to Lord Charles Somerset after the departure of Dr James Barry
M.D. Nash 1987 - Settler Handbook
"Led by Lieut Richard Daniell of Sidbury, Devon, an officer of the Royal Navy on half-pay. This was not a government-assisted party and it fell outside the terms of the emigration scheme. No deposits were paid and no free passages provided, but the party obtained a grant of land in the proportion of 100 acres for each able-bodied man. On his arrival in the colony, Lieut Daniell applied for an additional grant 500 acres as an officer on half-pay, and this was later extended.
Lieut Daniell emigrated in partnership with his brother James Daniell, a farmer of Sidbury, and Thomas Handfield, a farmer of Ulcombe, Kent. They were accompanied by James Daniell's wife and family and a maidservant; Thomas Handfield's sister (who married Richard Daniell in Cape Town on 5 July 1820); and four menservants.
The party sailed in the Duke of Marlborough which left Portsmouth on 30 March 1820 and arrived in Table bay on 18 June. Daniell was located in Albany at Sweet Milk Fountain on the Buffels Kloof stream, to the west of the other settler locations. The location was named Sidbury Park.
The partnership was dissolved in January 1821, and the two Daniell brothers and Handfield continued to farm independently in the Sidbury area".
