Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

barque Caesar Goddefroy, 700 / 626 tons, Captain J. Meyer, from Hamburg 5th October 1853, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 2nd January 1854 ... to Sydney N.S.W. 7th January, arrived January 24th 1854

The South Australian Register, Tuesday January 3rd 1854:—
Arrival: Monday January 2nd, the barque Caesar Goddefroy / Caesar Godeffroy, 700 tons, Meyer, Master from Hamburg the 3rd. October 1853.
The Sydney Morning Herald, Wednesday 25 January 1854:—
Arrival: Tuesday January 24th Caesar Goddeffroy, Hamburg barque, 626 tons, Captain Meyer, from Hamburg October 5th, and Adelaide, January 7th. Passengers:- Messrs. Riegethuth, Weekhardt, Wolff, Fessefeld, Bogselmann (2), Hart, and Leibig (2). Haege, and Prell agent.
...Sydney passengers extracted from Mariners and ships in Australian Waters

Passengers for Adelaide 228 Germans, for Sydney, 14 Germans ... this = 242. An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 254 German migrants should have been on the Caesar Goddefroy, I have been able to find 237 as listed below.— 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
