Niemann From Germany

Journal by Helkay

Ferdinand Frederick Neimann was born in Germany abt 1826 Shipping records passengers to Nelson 1845 -1879 Catalogue page 18
I found a Mr Numan left Gravesend 7th July 1855 [ this links with the year that Ferdinand was supposed to of come out ] on board the "Maori" which arrived Nelson 23rd Oct 1855.could this be him ? yet to be confirmed
Original German spelling would have double 'n' on the end
Name believed to have been frequently anglicized to " Newman"
He married Mary Pritchard born 1823 Monmouthshire,Wales.
I haven't been able to find out where he was born as nothing but germany on his death certificate.They had 3 sons & one daughter.

Hi Helkay,
You are right about "NIEMANN" anglicising their name to "Newman" as my ggrandfather did. I have checked our Niemann families but no Ferdinand Frederick but my Niemann's originally were Prussian, from Prerow, Mecklenburg which is now part of Germany and my ggrandfather (who jumped ship in Melbourne, Australia) was born at Zingst and registered in Barth. My ggrandfather anglicised his and his parents names on his Aust. marriage certificate which was difficult, but I have a 46th cousin (joke) who was born in Germany (his mother's gggrandfather was brother to my gggrandfather)so if you would like to 1. copy all the writing in www.freetranslator.com or 2. send it through to me and I will get Daniel to translate. It will be a start.
Happy hunting
Kind regards, Marg
