Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

The South Australian Register, Tuesday January 2nd 1855:—

Passengers:— F.W.A. Bock, Johannes Harges, Maria Ahrens, and Emele Schoneberg in the cabin.......
An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 268 German migrants should have been on the Johann Caesar, I have been able to find 269 as listed below.— Regards Robert.

The Argus, Monday January 8th 1855
Arrival of the Johan Caesar — After a passage of eighty-four days from Hamburg, this fast-sailing vessel anchored off the lightship yesterday. She has brought out two hunderd and fifty four Germans and Prussian immigrants, which consisted chiefly of mechanics and labourers with their families. During the voyage there were four deaths and one birth.
The Hamburg bark JOHANN CESAR was built at Reiherstieg, Hamburg, by Johann Cesar Godeffroy & Sohn, Hamburg, for their own account, in 1852 ; Bielbrief [certificate of registry] 3 September 1852. 182 Commerzlasten / 390 tons; 37,9 x 8,1 x 5,12 meters (length x beam x depth of hold). In 1867, the JOHANN CESAR was acquired from Goddefroy by her then master, H. D. A. Brück, but was re-acquired by Godeffroy in 1872.

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).
