Return to German Emigrants to South Australia

barque Sophie, 250 tons, Captain A. Decker, from Hamburg 5th May 1851, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 6th August 1851

Sydney Shipping Gazette 23rd August 1851

Arrived at Adelaide.— August 6th, Sophia, barque, 270 tons, Ducken [sic], from Hamburgh, 5th May, 49 passengers.

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
