Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

barque Helene, 294 tons, Captain J.F.W. Boster, from Hamburg 18th October 1855, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 23rd January 1856 ... departed Adelaide 10th February, arrived Melbourne 20th February 1856

The South Australian Register, Thursday January 24th 1856:—
Wednesday January 23— The barque Helene, 294 tons W. Boster, Master, from Hamburg, October 18th. Cabin passengers as listed below, and the remainder in the steerage.
The Age, Thursday February 21st 1856:—
Arrival: February 20th, the barque Helene, from Hamburg, 294 tons, J.F.W. Boster from Hamburg 18th October via Adelaide 12th inst. Passengers: Mr. and Mrs Bohn [sic] and Child ; Messrs Unkirck ; Windmiler ; Ziebell (2) ; C. Brinkner, and 60 in the steerage ...
The Argus, Thursday February 21st 1856:—
Arrival: February 20th, the barque Helene, from Hamburg, 294 tons, J.F.W. Boster from Hamburg 18th October via Adelaide 10th inst. Passenger in the cabin: Mr and Mrs. Bohn [sic] and child ; Messrs Unkrick (2) ; P Windlmiller ; C. Zeibel ; C. Brinkner, and flfty-nine in the intermediate and steerage. Neuhauss Woolley, and Co., agents...

Using the figures provided, 145 into Port Adelaide, with 68 for Melbourne, should equal 77 for Adelaide ; the original Hamburg passenger list lists 14 cabin and 131 steerage, for a total of 145 passengers embarked.

An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 145 German migrants should have been on the Helene, I have been able to find 145 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
