A further note ... This passenger list was transcribed from the newspaper of the day, because of the absence of an original list. Many names are included in the BISA, as having arrived via this ship, however, in the absence of any supporting data they have not been included in this list. Regards Robert, Adelaide

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

note: where maiden name of wife is indicated, it has been included in the given name column within ( ) ; the passenger list comprises two sections arranged alphabetically, i families, ii single men ; transcriber notes in italics
