The LAMMERSHAGEN was built in 1869 by A. Stephen & Sons, Glasgow, for the Hamburg shipowner Robert M. Sloman. It was an iron sailing ship (3 masts, square-rigged), 913 tons gross, 192 ft & the Captain from 1872-1882 was H. T. Pauls

The LAMMERSHAGEN left Hamburg, Germany 1 April 1875, arriving into Wellington, New Zealand 11 July 1875

As there is no passenger list for the 1875 Lammershagen into New Zealand on the web, (as at this date), I needed to make one for j9max who is researching ancestors. The following Passenger Names were taken from FamilySearch and are spelled as found OR changed after research found their descendants have spelt it differently. Many people changed their names after their naturalization, or were anglicised during times of political instability.
If you can help, or would like the spelling of your ancestors changed, please leave a message in the comment box below
The complete passenger list is held in the National Archives, Lower Hutt

Wanganui Herald, 27 May 1875
... Five vessels are now on their way to the Colony with 1762 immigrants on board. Their names are as follows: the Lammershagen, the Collinwood, the Star of China, the Fleming and the Aldegrove

Evening Post, 7 June 1875
... The Lammershagen sailed from Hamburg on the 1st April, with 420 souls

Evening Post, 12 June 1875
... The Lammershagen, with over 400 German immigrants for this port, is now 72 days our from Hamburg

Evening Post, 8 July 1875
... The North German ship R.D.B.G., reported in our Australian telegrams as being spoken on the 1st may, 25 days out from Hanover to Wellington, is, we expect, the ship Lammershagen, which left Hamburg for this port on the 1st April with 420 immigrants. The letters R.D.B.G. are evidently not the name of the ship, but only her distinguishing letters in the Code, and no such letters appear in the latest editions received in the colony, nor are the distinguishing letters of the Lammershagen known here

Evening Post, 12 July 1875
... The German ship Lammershagen from Hamburg and Cuxhaven, arrived yesterday. She experienced fine weather during the passage, which occupied 96 days. She brings immigrants. There were five births and one death, an adult, on the voyage

Evening Post, 13 July 1875
... The Wellington to-day took away 72 adults, passengers by the Lammershagen, and bound for Westland. They will be transhipped at Nelson. 59 adults, destined for Taranaki, were also taken by the Wellington. The remaining immigrants could not be landed to-day, as there was no small steamer in port to convey them ashore. Two more births have occurred on board since the vessel's arrival in harbor. Amongst immigrants are - Poles, Danes, Swedes, Germans and Italians. Among the latter are a party of ten men who worked together as ?? at Mont Cenis Tunnel and the ??. They were anxious to obtain employment in a body, and have been employed by Mr McKirdy, local contractor

Evening Post, 14 July 1875
... A number of the Lammershagen's immigrants were brought over this afternoon by the schooner Florence, and were landed at the Queen's wharf, where they were received by a crowd of their fellow-countrymen

Taranaki Herald, 14 July 1875
... The s.s. Wellington has gone to the ship Lammershagen for the German immigrants for Taranaki, and sails for the North immediately they are taken aboard

New Zealand Herald, 16 July 1875
... The last of the Lammershagen's immigrants were landed to-day. They are a clean and healthy lot - very German looking

Evening Post, 19 July 1875
... The Manawatu, this afternoon, took 67½ immigrants, ex Lammershagen, for Wanganui

Wanganui Herald, 22 July 1875
... The immigrants per the Lammershagen were landed this morning from the Manawatu and accommodated at the Immigration barracks. They comprise in all 90 souls, making 67½ adults, made up of 18 families, 18 single men, and one single girl, and includes Germans, Swedes, Norwegians, Italians and Swiss. The whole of them are totally unacquainted with the English language, so that this may operate as a difficulty in getting them into situations, but, with the view of distributing them as widely as possible about the district, Mr Brewer intends forwarding 25 or more to Marton tomorrow by coach and the balance he expects being able to forward per steamer to Patea. With this view he telegraphed this afternoon to the Government for instructions as to chartering the steamer Egmont, and it is therefore more than probable that they will be forwarded to that district. With such mixed nationalities it is impossible to form any opinion as to whether the immigrants will be found useful in this part of the globe. No doubt they comprise various trades and callings, but the absence of an interpreter renders it difficult to ascertain anything really very tangible on that point, and this fact to some extent shows, that it is very questionable indeed whether in the absence of any regular foreign settlement such immigrants are of that class really required by this Colony. The families in the depot appeared all clean and healthy enough, and may when fairly acclimatized, get on very well, but it will take a very considerable time before much can be expected from them

Evening Post, 9 August 1875
... The ships Lammershagen and Hannibal are still lying in the stream, waiting a change of wind

Wanganui Chronicle, 13 August 1875
... By the Lammershagen, from Hamburg, there were lately despatched to our port (New Plymouth), a number of foreign immigrants, whose condition in a few individual cases, we regret to hear, did not receive that attention of which their necessities or special circumstances caused them to stand urgently in need. No blame can attach, so far as we can ascertain, to the Immigration Agent here, who fulfils the, at times, difficult and arduous duties appertaining to his office, with a conscientious regard to the responsibilities thereof. In the case of the Lammershagen immigrants, there was scarcely one who could speak a word of English, and the difficulty inseparable from yielding satisfaction to new arrivals was trebled and intensified by the greater difficulty, almost amounting to an impossibility, which the Immigration Agent experienced in making the foreigners comprehend the nature of the instruction which he was supposed to communicate. There were one or two cases for which the aid of a doctor had to be called in, and woman's greatest trouble had to be sustained without the necessary assistance and comfort generally considered indispensable to the requirements of her condition. Could not the Benevolent Society be induced to extend its ramifications in this direction. There are frequently cases occurring at the Immigration Depot, where the assistance of a gently, sympathising woman would be invaluable, and would alleviate much suffering, and confer real benefit. The cases to which we now particularly refer, fortunately were made known to a kind, motherly matron, who extended her charity judiciously, and whose well-timed assistance was most gratefully recognised by the recipient thereof. But, in the case of foreigners especially, with whom communication is so difficult to maintain, it is manifestly unfair to the local Immigration Agent, to ask him to undertake unassisted the task of providing for the necessities of the strangers. Their absolutely urgent wants or physical condition he may be unable to ascertain, if acquainted therewith might possibly experience insurmountable difficulties in rendering or procuring the necessary attendance. But were one or two of the lady members of the Benevolent Society to be deputed, while engaging in their visitations, to include the depot in their rounds, more particularly after the arrival of a fresh batch of immigrants, they would find an extensive field for the practical development of their charitable impulses. We are of opinion that a great amount of genuine charity - genuine because dispensed where needed - could this be beneficially applied, and we are sure a hint only is necessary, in order to induce the members of the Society to direct their sympathies towards alleviating the distress of those who have no claim upon our charity beyond the fact that they are in trouble, that they are strangers, and long for sympathy, encouragement, and advice, for the lack of which many a poor neglected creature has been driven to corrupt and abandoned courses

* only Blattner recorded as dying in NZ: Kaipara & Waitemata Echo, 7 August 1919 An old-age pensioner, Charles Blattner (about 70), of Swiss descent, who followed the occupation of gumdigger at "The Peak", near Kaukapakapa, was fatally burned in his whare on Tuesday of last week. It appears that Blattner, who had been in indifferent health, was being cared for by a mate, who had left a pile of scrub near the whare, for the fire, and while he was absent deceased had evidently obtained this and place it on the fire, which blazed and caught his clothes. When found at night he was quite dead, being badly burned about the neck and down one side. Constable Hunt, of Helensville, was communicated with and accompanied by Dr Meinhold, proceeded to the scene of the fatality. An inquest was held on the following day, when a verdict of accidental death from burns was returned. It is stated that deceased had been in the Costley Home, but refused to stay there, as he thought he had not enough freedom

Manawatu Evening Standard, Saturday 13 March 1920
... The funeral at the Palmerston North cemetery yesterday afternoon of the late Mrs A. Rosanowski was largely attended, the service being impressively conducted by the Rev. Father McManus. The late Mrs Rosanowski had resided in New Zealand since 1874, and during the past 44 years had made her home in the Manawatu district, being one of the old residents on this coast, and was highly respected by all with whom she came in contact. She is survived by her husband and a grown-up family of four sons and one daughter. The sons are Messrs:
Michael and John Rosanowski of Palmerston North
Mr Joseph Rosanowski, of Auckland
Mr August Rosanowski of Whangarei
and the daughter, Mrs Devlin, of Taihape (Pauline)
while there are also 25 grandchildren.
Sincere sympathy is felt for the relatives in their affliction
Manawatu Evening Standard, Monday 18 July 1932
... There passed away in Palmerston North, late yesterday afternoon, a very highly esteemed citizen, Mr August Rosanowski, who had lived at this centre practically continuously for 56 years. During his long period of residence he had made a host of friends, and his death has caused much regret. The late Mr Rosanowski was in every sense a pioneer, having witnessed the transformation of Palmerston North from a village to a city. He was 85 years of age. With his wife, the deceased gentleman, who was born in Danzig, arrived in New Zealand in 1874, in response to an appeal made by the British Government for colonists for New Zealand. He arrived on July 17 of that year, and it is a coincidence that his death should have occurred on July 17, 58 years later. Mr and Mrs Rosanowski landed in the South Island at Jackson's Bay, and after two years on the West Coast, came to Palmerston North. Here the deceased gentleman worked for the sawmilling firm of Richter, Nannestad, Jensen and Company for 17 years, during that time helping in the levelling of the bush on the northern side of the town, around where the Hospital now stands and further out to Kelvin Grove. In those days, from Featherston Street to Boundary Road was a swamp. After the bush in this district had been cut out, the firm which employed Mr Rosanowski transferred its horses and material to Tahoraite, and there deceased worked for a couple of years. He then took up farming at Stoney Creek, and returned to Palmerston North six years later, to live in retirement. Though he had never participated in public affairs, the late Mr Rosanowski had led a very useful life as a private citizen. He was one of the earliest members of Court Manawatu Lodge. Until some two years ago he had never suffered a day's illness. Last December he suffered a stroke, however, and was removed to the hospital, and had since been an inmate. The late Mr Rosanowski, who was predeceased by his wife 12 years ago, also by a son and his only daughter, is survived by three sons, Messrs:
August Rosanowski (Kawakawa)
Joseph Rosanowski (Auckland)
Michael Rosanowski (Palmerston North).
There are 25 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.
The deepest sympathy has been extended to the bereaved family. The interment will take place at the Palmerston North cemetery on Wednesday afternoon

VALZ - this entry is my gr gr grandparents Theodor and Wilhelmina Voltz who were on the Lammershagen with their daughters Bertha and Minna, in another passenger list I have seen their surname as Voelz. Voltz was the name used once they had arrived in New Zealand. They settled in Wanganui and their grave is in the old Wanganui cemetery.
