|Settler Handbook Content:||No. 9 on the Colonial Department list, led by John Henry Dixon, a joiner and cabinetmaker of 8 Mutton Lane, Mile End Road, London. This was a joint-stock party made up of London tradesmen, all married men with families. No recommendation for this party has been traced in Colonial Department records to account for its selection, but Dixon's assurance that he was 'stout made and healthy' is unlikely to have been recommendation enough on its own.
