The WANDRAHM, from Hamburg, arrived at an early hour on Thursday morning. She is a very fine vessel of the Goddefroy line, and landed a large number of passengers at the Cape. From thence she made a very quick passage, being but 20 days to the anchorage. She is commanded by Captain Meyer, who has earned the reputation of being one of the regular traders, having several times made favorable passages in the same employ. He has brought Cape papers to February 12, and if he had arrived two days before, would have furnished later English intelligence.

An index from the State Library South Australia (SLSA) shows that 32 German migrants should have been on the Wandrahm for Port Adelaide, I have been able to find 36 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
