Passenger List

The list below is based largely on a list in David Schubert's Kavel's People (pp164-169) [1].  The following extract is also from that book.

"189 Prussian emigrants left Hamburg on the Prince George.  Three died before Plymouth and one child was born, so 18 arrived at Plymouth. There Pastor Kavel embarked and one child died-so 187 left Plymouth. Ten more people died on the voyage from Plymouth to SA and one child was born; thus 178 arrived in SA. There were 14 deaths altogether, half of them adults and half children."

Henry Capper in Capper's South Australia (3rd edition ,1839) describes the passengers thus:

"in addition to about 200 Germans of the labouring class there were four male and three female passengers of superior class.  Among these were Charles Flaxman, his wife Jane, and their three sons Samuel, John, and Charles."

The Southern Australian (Adelaide, SA)

Saturday 24th November, 1838

We have been gratified by a visit to the ship Prince George, just arrived from Hambro', with a large number of German emigrants. The vessel is in the highest order, and the emigrants have come out happy and contented, and express themselves fully satisfied with their kind treatment.  Great praise is due the Captain and to Mr Flaxman (the supercargo) for their unremitting attention to the passengers on the voyage
