COROMANDEL VALLEY cemetery ONKAPARINGA - South Australia ... 1 - 146

Journal by ngairedith

the CITY of ONKAPARINGA is located on the southern fringe of Adelaide, South Australia.
It is named after the Onkaparinga River, whose name comes from Ngangkiparinga, a Kaurna word meaning "The Women's River"

Kaurna Yerta (Kaurna country)

Bukkibukkiunangko Kaurna meyunna yaintya pangkarilla tikketti
(Since ancient times Kaurna people have occupied this country)

The Kaurna Aboriginal people were traditional owners of the land called Ngangkiparringa (city of Onkaparinga) for at least 40,000 years before the arrival of Europeans. For a map outlining their perception of the land, their relationship to it and some of the names they used, click here.

Linked to the land by spiritual and cultural bonds, their knowledge has been handed from generation to generation in stories and memories. The Dreaming contains many of these tales and describes the creation of the world by god-like, heroic beings. The Kaurna see themselves as steward of the environmenta world alive with social and spiritual meaning.

Before Europeans arrived, they moved through their land as the seasons and their tradition allowed. They traded in karko (ochre) and met together at significant places. Clothed in cured hidesoften prepared at a site near Rekarung (the Aldinga Scrub)they lived in wodli which were simple summer housings of branch and leaf and more substantial winter structures moulded of grass and earth. Their diet was rich and diverse, built from the flora and fauna surrounding them.

Revering their ancestors and having virtually no contact with the world beyond their own, the Kaurna people were forced to meet head-on the culture of the first Europeans who arrived on their land in the early 1800s.

* COROMANDEL VALLEY is a south-eastern suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. Part is in the City of Mitcham and the City of Onkaparinga with the Sturt River being the boundary between the two council areas.

Coromandel Valley (situated in the Adelaide Hills about eighteen kilometres from the Capital City) and its neighbouring suburb, Coromandel East, gained their name from the 662 tons, three-masted ship, the Coromandel, which arrived in Holdfast Bay from London on 17 January 1837 with 156 English settlers.
Amongst her mainly young married passengers were several who would become well known in the new colony during their time and are still well known today. Some of these were Charles MANN, James CHAMBERS and his wife Catherine and Robert NORTON and his wife Mary MARSH. They became pioneer settlers of Norton Summit where both are buried.

Others passengers included Edward STEPHENS and his wife Emma, the HOBBS family, Dr T.Y. COTTER and his wife Jane and Johannes MENGE. After disembarking at Holdfast Bay most of the passengers lived for some time at 'Coromandel Village', next to Buffalo Row.

After the ship reached the shore, some of its sailors deserted, intending to remain behind in South Australia and took refuge in the hills in the Coromandel Valley region.
Without a sufficient crew, Captain CHESSER was granted a warrant on 31 January for the arrest of his sailors. They included:
James BARRETT, John CONEND, Robert CRANSON, Richard JONES, James MARSHALL, John PARSONS, James POWELL, Edward REED and John WILLIAMS. None of them were apprehended but all, except Cranson, surrendered on 13 March. They were remanded for 3 days after which all were discharged. (read a lot more at the ship link above)

The Coromandel Valley Primary School, established in 1877, is one of the oldest in South Australia. Adjacent to the school is the original St John's Anglican Church, built with local stone.

The parish at various times in the last century included the rural areas from Meadows in the South to Belair in the north.
