From the Cape: Messrs. Charles Cold, Patrick Queen, Heinrich Schlosser, and William and Mary Prendergast, in the steerage.

The San Francisco arrived from Hamburg on Monday, having touched at the Cape of Good Hope in August to land portion of her original passengers, and to load a consignment of cargo for Adelaide. In addition to the passengers and cargo for here she has several of the former and a large proportion of the latter for Melbourne. Daring the voyage no sickness of any importance occurred, but the number of souls on board has been increased by two births. On the 2nd September, in lat 37° 26. long. 32° 6' she spoke the American ship Elvira Owen, bound to Melbourne, with passengers and cargo, but her port of departure was not ascertained. On the arrival of the San Francisco of Glenelg she was boarded by Mr. Robinson (pilot), who conducted her to the anchorage, and as soon as the tide afforded she was towed into harbour. The captain reports that flour was selling high, and a cargo hence per Thomas Brown had arrived, but from the heavy weather experienced at sea it was not without damage, and unfortunately Captain Brown had broken his leg prior to reaching the Cape.

October 25-San Francisco, barque,494 tons, Stortenbecker master, for Melbourne.
Passengers-Messrs. H. Miere and J. Schier from Adelaide, and original passengers from Hamburg and Cape Town.

The Argus, November 1st
San Francisco, Hamburg barque, 404 tons, N. Stortenbecker, from Cape Town 19th August, via Adelaide 27th ult. Twenty passengers. F. Haller and Co., agents.

An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 76 German migrants should have been on the barque San Francisco for Port Adelaide, I have been able to find 76 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
