Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

barque Bengalee, 354 tons, Captain Thomas Hamlin, from Hamburg 10th July 1838, arrived at Kangaroo Island, 9th November, Holdfast Bay, 16th November & Port Adelaide, South Australia 19th November 1838

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

additional information: The Bengalee was a barque built at Dumbarton, Scotland, in 1837.
