Locations of the 1820 British settler farms in the Albany districtNotes: Most forts remain today as ruins in various degrees of restoration. Fort Peddie is a blockhouse, built after the 1820 agreement that formed the neutral zone. Fort Brown was much enlarged after the sixth frontier war, became a police post in 1873 and was declared a national monument in 1938. Military villages such as Woburn, Auckland, Ely, Juanasberg, Kempt and Fredericksburg were established in the vicinity of the forts. Alice was a Presbyterian missionary centre which grew around Fort Hare's military encampment. Adelaide, a Scottish settlement near the current town, became a transit camp for troops during the War of Mlanjeni. King Williams Town started as a military camp and mission station and became the base from which Sir Harry Smith controlled the tribal areas. The small village Sidbury was established by settler Richard Daniel, c. 1832. The farming districts of Albany and eastern Uitenhage were also collectively known as the 'Zuurveld'. The Kat River Settlement was a homeland for displaced Khoi-khoi where they occupied land tenures for the mission stations.
