Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

ship Europa, 622 tons, Captain S. Volger, from Hamburg 15th March via the Downs, 25th March 1856, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 25th June 1856 ... departed Adelaide 22nd July, arrived Melbourne 31st July 1856

The Melbourne Argus, Friday August 1st. 1856:—
Thursday July 31— Europa, Hamburg ship, 622 tons, A. Vogler, from Hamburg via Adelaide 22nd ult. with forty-six passengers.

.....with regards to the figures provided, 46 of the 62 passengers were destined for Victoria per this vessel. This would have only left 16 disembarking at Adelaide, however, those passengers below, with a * notation in the remarks column, were known to have arrived in Melbourne, which equals 36 passengers for Melbourne, from Hamburg via Adelaide. The difference of 10 passengers is accounted for by the one listed passenger who did not sail, and the five members of the Wood family and the four members of the Kennedy family, who had embarked at Adelaide for the voyage to Melbourne. This accounting should conclude that there were 24 passengers who disembarked at Adelaide.

The imports for this voyage were fantastic, from dried fruit, barrels of beans, cask of cheese, Candles, apples, 2 pianos, 1 box Billiard balls, 4 cases pianoforts, 31 cases matches, 800 spririts, 238 cases Firkins butter, 25 barrels pork, and right at the bottom of the list the following, 205 cases of glass, 1,197 deals, and 828 flooring boards.

An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 62 German migrants should have been on the Europa, I have been able to find 62 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
