In search of Steigenberger's

Journal by SandraGreen

The Steigenberger's came to England from Bavaria in the early 1800's they were industrial chemist's and used to make pigments. They started to make paint in the London area and eventually dropped the "Steigen" from the front of their name and became "Berger" paints.
One of their sons, John, came to Australia and made his home in Rushworth, Victoria and had limited success on the goldfields, he was married to Mary Jane Lapham.
Another son also came to Australia but I can find no trace of him, so he could have been here for a short and left again.
I am interested in finding out more information about the Steigenberger family, I have John's family history since he came to Victoria and I am happy to share with anyone who is also tracing the family tree.
