Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886 or German Emigrants to South Australia

barque Victoria, 390 tons, Captain J.H.O. Meyer, from Hamburg, Germany 15th June 1848, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 6th November 1848

South Australian Register Tuesday 7th November 1848

Monday November 06-the barque Victoria 390 tons, J.H.O. Meyer from Hamburg, 15th June & Rio de Janeiro 31st August.
Passengers: cabin.— S. A. Butefish ; H. W. Gravenhorst ; T. Landmann ; Maurice Whyle ; Alice Whyle ; Henry Abrahams ; Benjamin Amsberg ; Rose Amsberg ; Frederick Amsberg and Hermann Behr, surgeon.
Passengers: steerage.— 9 carpenters ; 6 clerks ; 35 agriculturalists ; 4 shoemakers ; 2 shepherds ; 2 cabinetmakers ; 2 mechanics ; 2 smiths ; 2 tailors ; 1 house servant ; 1 turner ; 1 schoolmaster ; 1 organist ; 1 millwright ; 1 tanner ; 1 baker ; 1 vintner ; 1 jeweller ; 1 druggist ; 1 upholterer ; 1 pastor ; 1 weaver ; 1 saddler ; 1 missionary ; 1 soap boiler ; 56 females ; 71 [children]

The following note was on the bottom last page of one part of the passenger list.

Some of the steerage parties are under engagement to Mrs. Godfrey Mon to furnish working hands to redeem the arrears of passage moneys. It would materially promote the interest of the colony, if these parties can be received by landowners, and their wages be retained to the amount of 10/- per week for each working hand, for account of the ship owners till the said arrears be paid. As Mr. Stackmann has declined the business of collecting the of the said arrears as it takes to much of his time, I am very much at a loss, how to dispose of them-and request Mr. M. Laren to propose to Mr Giles, to step into the contracts, which Capt. Myer will endorse to him, whereby not only the parties themselves will be located on the lands of the South Australian Co. but also, those who will follow with means, and all will become valuable tenants being a religious and hard working people. The "Victoria" touching at Rio, the present notice will be in time to make arrangments for the reception of the passengers, and in hope that some of the gentlemen of the board will also kindly entertain this application for their private lands, and afford me the opportunity of disposing of the contract in question.
This list was completed to this point with a lot of assistance from several sources, one of these was work out of the South Australian Heraldry and Genealogy (SAGHS) Library compiled by Dulcie Love, long time convener of The Germanic Special Interest Group. This was used for cross checking only. Not all the facts came from the Original Passenger list from the State Library South Australia (SLSA), they were obtained from the BDM indexes and the Biographical Index South Australia. There are a lot of gaps on this list, from researching passenger lists I have noted that a lot of German Settlers moved on from South Australia, either to Victoria or Queensland. Any Correction or addition to this list would be gladly accepted. Regards Robert.
