Martin's older brother, Johann, came to Victoria, Australia a couple of years earlier than his brother and parents, with an uncle. He did not go to South Australia. He died in Hamilton, Victoria in 1914.
Johann krause and Marie Kies had their last child in 1865 at Lyndoch, S.A. so could have been in Victoria anytime from there. Marie's death cert in 1911 indicates they went to Victoria in about 1900. But Martin was married in Victoria in 1886 so you would think Johann and Marie were in Vic. at that time. death cert information is never reliable, only as good as informant's knowledge.

I made a mistake on comment re: when Marie Krause nee Kies'death certificate states she was in Victoria from 1900 - it was actually from 1860. This is not the right date either as they were still in S.A. in 1865.

My recent research indicates that Johann may well have arrived earlier than his parents and brother Martin.
The Biographical Index of South Australians 1836-1885 only shows one Hans Krause arriving on the Wandrahm. Up until I recieved your advice I was thinking that this may have been the young Hans with the father coming over ealier! Then sending word for the other members of his family to come over!

The index shows KRAUSE Hans arr: 1862 WANDRAHM
KRAUSE Marie arr: 1862 WANDRAHM
KRAUSE Martin b: c1801 d: 15.5.1873 Eden Valley
SA arr: 1862 WANDRAHM*res: Eden Valley
KRAUSE Martin arr: 1862 WANDRAHM
(The "Wandrahm" arrived at Port Adelaide on 13 March 1862.
It is most likely that the older Martin was related to Johann senior however, I cannot find any information which might shed some light as to how they may have been related?

I have found what I now understand to be the Naturalization Document (Dated 19 September 1884)for a Johann Krause, stating he arrived in Victoria in 1859. He states he was born at Cotbus Brandenburg Germany and he had been living in Victoria for 25 years. This would make him born abt 1848, abt the same age as Martins Brother!!
Is there any information on the Uncle that Johann came to Victoria with?

Hi to all,
