Chronicle (Adelaide, SA : 1895 - 1954) Saturday 29 November 191383801

The death of Mr. C. H. J. Woltmann,
Flinders-street east, Adelaide, removed an-
other of the rapidly disappearing band
of pioneers, he having resided for
67 years in the State. He was born in
Hanover, in 1825. When 20 years of age
he secured release from military service  
and came to South Australia, arriving at
Port Adelaide in the ship Patell on No-
vember 1, 1846. He first proceeded to  
Kapunda, and later on to Kanmantoo,      
where he worked for about five months.
Upon his return to Adelaide he secured
a contract for stone quarrying at Glee
son's quarry, Glen Osmond. Subsequently
he worked at the Wheal Gawler mine,
Glen Osmond, and then at Burra. He
was seized with the gold fever and joined
in the exodus to New South Wales in
1849. Two years later he was in Victoria,  
where he met with a fair amount of suc-
cess. At Bendigo he and three com
panions got 28 lb. of gold from a claim.
Life was full of adventure in those days.
On one occasion, near Bendigo,  
bushrangers raided a camp and  
tied two men to a tree. The women and
children, however, gave the alarm, and
the bushrangers had to be content with  
some provisions and grog. On another
occasion, Mr. Woltmann encountered the  
notorious bushranger, Gardner, in an  
hotel, but managed to get away safely
with his well-filled gold belt. After a
few years in Victoria, Mr. Woltmann re-
turned to Adelaide and entered upon vari-
ous business enterprises; his last being
that of a licensed victualler, and he be-
came the owner of the Prince of Wales
Hotel in Angas-street, with which he
parted only a few years ago. He was
strictly honorable in all his dealings, cour-
teous in demeanor, and was widely known
for his generous hospitality. Several years
he revisited the fatherland, but was
glad to return to the land of his adoption.
