Barque Bengalee, 354 tons, Captain Peter Schacht, from Hamburg 10th July 1838, arrived at Holdfast Bay 16th November 1838 & Port Adelaide, South Australia 19th November 1838.

The Bengalee was primarily a supply ship. In 1838, It carried the religious Lutheran migrants who could not be fitted in the Prince George. 10 passengers lived near Hamburg, 23 were from Pastor Kavel's group near Klemzig

Warning! Migrants who traveled to South Australia in steerage between 1836 and 1841 were not individually named in the ship manifest, only the small number of passengers who traveled in cabins. Different researchers have reconstructed passenger lists from newspaper reports and family histories. This page was created to compare and collate different lists of German passengers on board the Bengalee. Some errors are possible. Please feedback any suggestions or corrections to Steve Thomas.
