Hoole Gallery 1820

The Chapman, the ship on which the Hoole family travelled from Gravesend to Algoa (Port Elisabeth) in 1819-20
Settlers going ashore in 1820, in rough conditions.  Note the "tented village" on the shore, which awaited the arrival of the first group, from the sailing ship "Chapman."
