Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

ship Skjold, 460 tons, Captain Hans Christian Claussen, from Altona 3rd July 1841, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 27th October 1841

Cabin Passengers: Pastor Daniel Gotthard Fritzsche, 44, from Posen, Mrs. Hillmaur from Hamburg, Nehrlich Hannchen widow, and Johanne Dorothea, 33. . . surgeon, Dr. Simons

The South Australian Register October 30 1841.
The Skjold, Claussen, Master, 460 tons, arrived at the bay on Wednesday last with 213 German emigrants. She left Altona July 3th 1841, but brings no English News. There were 41 deaths on the passage, principally among the children. The disease was dysentery ; the emigrants are all going to Klemzig, SA under the charge of the Reverend Mr. Kavel, until the can obtain employment.

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

additional information: The Skjold was a ship of 460 tons, built at Sundeborg in 1839

Wikipedia:
The Skjold Group - October 1841 In 1840 a letter was sent to the Old Lutherans in Prussia to encourage others to also emigrate. Included in this letter was a request for a second pastor to be sent also. The group set sail for Australia, on 11 July 1841 on the Skjold. On a trip beset with sickness, 55 people, mainly young children and the elderly died. On October 28, 1841, 213 emigrants from Prussia arrived at Port Misery in South Australia. With them was Pastor Gotthard Fritzsche, who had been encouraged to emigrate because of the Prussian government’s requirement for a Pastor to accompany the emigrants. The migrants settled at Lobethal, and Bethenien. In 1842, Langmeil was settled.
