LEONTINE
last modified 2 February 2006

The Leontine, a three masted ship of 758 tons (nm) was built at Vagesak for D.H. Wtjen & Co. (ownership attributed to K Laun of Bremen in 1848 newspaper reports) and launched on 19 April 1844. She was initially engaged in the packet trade between Bremen and America.

The Leontine is known to have made two voyages to Australia.

Under the command of Wilhelm Johann Ariaans, she departed Bremen on 10th April 1848, stopped at Rio de Janiero and arrived in South Australia on 1st August 1848. She departed on 17 Oct 1848 for Batavia.

The Leontine made a second voyage to SA under the command of captain Ariaans in 1850, leaving Bremen on 10 May 1850 and arriving in Port Adelaide on 13 Aug 1850.

Passenger List

No official passenger list has been located for the Leontine and only cabin passengers are listed in newspaper reports. The list below is based on two lists obtained from the Lutheran Archives, Adelaide, SA [1] and updated lists that appear in the Koenig [8] and Traeger [5] family histories. All are believed to be based on the research undertaken by Carl Heyne. Some ammendments have been made where necessiated by recent information and are noted below [10]. Additional information comes from South Australians 1836-1885[6 ].


The following extract is from Because of their Beliefs[7] (p 62):

"On 20 March 1848 E Delius dispatched the Leontine under Captain Laun from Bremen to South Australia; this ship belonged to the shipowner Watjeu & Co and took fifty people of the Silesian emigration society at Peterswaldau in the administrative region of Breslau. Delius also seems to have dispatched another group in the autumn of 1848, according to the above-mentioned dispute with Hartig. No further details are known of either group."

"The German immigrant ship "Leontine" from Bremen

We have the pleasure to greet the arrival of another large batch of German emigrants by the Bremen ship Leontine, the owner of which Mr Laun, formerly commander of the Heerjeebhoy Rustomjee Patel, has brought a quantity of cargo on his own account, consigned, with the vessel, to H. C. Stakemann, Esq., the German Consul. The Leontine left Bremen on the 10th April, and touching at Rio for water and to refresh the emigrants, stopped there for a week, making the passage thence in 50 days. The total number of emigrants is 262, of whom 28 are cabin passengers, and several of them capitalists, who intend to purchase land. Only one adult and two or three newly-born children died on the passage, and we are assured that the emigrants, several of whom are from Prussia, are, as a body, the finest set of people yet landed here from that part of Europe."
