Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

ship Leontine, 758 tons, Captain Wilhelm Ihno Ariaans, from Bremen 10th April 1848, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 1st August 1848

The South Australian Register Wednesday August 2 1848

Tuesday August 1, the Ship Leontine, 758 tons, William Ariaans, Master, from Bremen, 10th April.
Passengers.— Mr. and Mrs Hering and three children, Mr. and Mrs. Schleider and child, Mr. and Mrs. Sutter and four children, Miss Max. Sutter, Mr. and Mrs. Elegeke and five children, Mr. G. Haber, Mr. C. B. Noltenius, Mr. H. T. Isaachsen, Mr. E. Signitz, Mr. R. Laczoin, and Mr. E. Laun in the cabin . . . 262 emigrants in the steerage.
. . . .We have the pleasure to greet the arrival of another large batch of German emigrants by the Bremen ship Leontine, the owner of which Mr Laun, formerly commander of the Heerjeebhoy Rustomjee Patel, has brought a quantity of cargo on his own account, consigned, with the vessel, to H. C. Stakemann, Esq., the German Consul. The Leontine left Bremen on the 10th April, and touching at Rio for water and to refresh the emigrants, stopped there for a week, making the passage thence in 50 days. The total number of emigrants is 262, of whom 28 are cabin passengers, and several of them capitalists, who intend to purchase land. Only one adult and two or three newly-born children died on the passage, and we are assured that the emigrants, several of whom are from Prussia, are, as a body, the finest set of people yet landed here from that part of Europe.

The Bremen ship Leontine was built at Vegesack/Grohn by Johann Lange for the Bremen firm of D. H. Wätjen & Co., and was launched on 19 April 1844.
The Leontine appears to have sailed under the Norwegian flag until 1879. The Weser-Zeitung of 20 January 1879 prints the following report: Vestervig, 17 January. The bark LEONTINE, Gundersen, from and for Tönsberg, from London, in ballast, stranded on the local coast and became a total wreck. The crew was saved.

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
