St Pauli
Ship: 380 Tons
Peter Schacht.
Surgeon Superintendent:
Dr Jacob Friedrich Göders
Sailed Hamburg 26th December 1842 - arrived Nelson 14th June 1843

St Pauli brought the first batch of German immigrants to Nelson. She has an a somewhat adventurous passage of 148 days from Hamburg. Three weeks after sailing smallpox broke out, and the vessel put into Bahia where she remained three weeks, but the passengers must have been well looked after as only four deaths occurred - four children.
White Wings. Sir Henry Brett

In the diary of Johann Wilhelm Christof Heine (a steerage passenger on board) it was stated that St Pauli put into Bahia due rather to lack of water than because of the smallpox. Thanks to Jo Foster & Steve Crosby for this piece of information. One other couple (apart from those mentioned on this passenger list) were married during the voyage. We do not have the names of this couple.

Further information on the St Pauli. Thanks to Don Allan.
