Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

ship Solway, 337 tons, Captain R. Pearson, from Hamburg 9th June 1837, arrived at Port Adelaide (via Kangaroo Island), South Australia

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 Solway was a wooden ship built at Monkswearmouthshore, Sunderland in 1829. On the 21st of December 1837, she broke moorings and was wrecked during a storm in Rosetta Harbour, Encounter Bay.
