Miscellaneous Shipping

This ship, of and from Hamburg, arrived on Monday, the 17th instant, via Cape Town, into which port she put to disembark about 40 of her passengers. Her voyage has been over the average time, caused by light winds and a detention in Table Bay. She left Hamburg ou the 7th May, and the Cape of Good Hope on the 14th August, and brings a mail fiom the latter place, but no loose papers. As portion of her cargo, she has 80 rams, consigned to various gentlemen in this colony.

The Caesar Godeffroy sailed from Hamburg on the 7th May, having taken on board at that port a full complement of passengers and cargo for Cape Town, Adelaide, and Melbourne. She made a favourable passage to Cape Town, where the passengers and cargo for that place were landed, and several additional persons embarked for the Australian colonies. She is a fine vessel of 600 tons register, of modern proportions and mould, and is evidently a fast ship in favourable weather.

The Argus, Wednesday 10 October 1860
Tuesday 9th October 1860: —Caesar Godeffroy, Hamburg ship, 621 tons, T. Fruchtenicht, from Hamburg, via Cape Town and Adelaide, 3rd inst. Passengers cabin: Mr. and Mrs. Hay and child, Mr. R. Jones. F. Haller and Co., agents.

An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 48 German migrants should have been on the ship Caesar Godeffroy, I have been able to find 48 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
