Karel Schoeman is the author of a large number of works of fiction and non-fiction, both in English and Afrikaans, and has won numerous literary awards.

Bailie’s Party: The Old World, 1757‒1819 (Book 1 of 3)

In 1820 John Bailie, a member of an Anglo-Irish landowning family, led a large party of British immigrants to South Africa as part of a group later to be known as the 1820 Settlers.

The present volume, the first of three based on the extensive research of Mrs M.D. Nash, an authority on the Settlers, attempts to trace the European background of both Bailie and the members of the settler groups, and to understand the cultural heritage they brought with them to South Africa.

 

Bailie’s Party: The New Land, 1820–1834 (Book 2 of 3)

In 1820 John Bailie, a member of an Anglo-Irish landowning family and former lieutenant in the Royal Navy, led a large party of British immigrants to South Africa as part of a group later to be known as the 1820 Settlers. His party soon dissolved, but Bailie became extensively involved not only in the affairs of the Eastern Cape, but also those of the Transorange in the early stages of European settlement, and the colony of Natal.

This biography of John Bailie and his family, based on the extensive research of Mrs M.D. Nash, an authority on the British Settlers, tells the story of an adventurous life inextricably linked with the colonial history of South Africa during the first half of the nineteenth century. The present volume, the second of three, deals more specifically with the manner in which the settlers adjusted to their new environment.
