Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

barque Dockenhuden, 388 tons, Captain J.H.O. Meyer, from Hamburg 4th November 1848, via Rio de Janeiro 5th February 1849, via Melbourne 21st March 1849, (dep. 4th May) arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 21st May 1849

Melbourne Daily News, April 23rd 1849:— Arrival: Dockenhuden, barque, 388 tons, Meyer, from Hamburgh the 4th November. Passengers. Mr. G.B. Schmidt, Mr. J. Ench, and ninety-seven in the steerage. . . . The Dockenhuden left Hamburgh on the 4th November, was three weeks in the Elbe, 12 days in the channel, and put into Rio de Janeiro on the 5th February for water and provisions, and sailed again on the 16th. The emigrants are a very respectable class, having nearly all paid their own passages. They consist of farm overseers, architects, joiners, carpenters &c. She spoke no vessels on the voyage. She proceeds to Adelaide in a few days.

The South Australian Register Wednesday May 23rd 1849

Monday May 21st:— The barque Dockenhuden, 388 tons, Meyers master, from Melbourne. Passenger Julius Enet, and David Kay, in the cabin. . . .
The "Dockenhuden"
This German emigrant ship arrived here from Port Phillip on Monday evening , after having landed the larger proportion of the passengers at Melbourne — where the payment of their own passages seems to have been, and very justly, no small recommendation. Those who have arrived here are two gentlemen in the cabin, and twenty-seven of those who are equally welcome in the steerage.

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).
