An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 106 German migrants should have been on the August, I have been able to find 156 as listed below. It's very hard to get an accurate number of migrants that landed in Adelaide with the conflict of numbers shown above.— Regards Robert.

note.— There are very few surviving original lists of German passengers, so the data below has been compiled from a variety of sources, such as contemporary newspaper(s), internet sources, input from descendants and the South Australian Heraldry Genealogy society, (SAGHS).
I know the list is incomplete and may contain errors, so any feedback with additions or corrections, will be most appreciated. Please contact me using the link above. Regards Robert, Adelaide
