The 'Wilhelmine' arriving early on 1st October 1855, carried a PIETSCH family of five, who could possibly have been related.


Article by Val BRAENDLER great great great granddaughter of Philippine & Joseph

"Johann Joseph BRAENDLER was born in Preichau (now Przychowa, in the District of Gmina Scinawa, Poland) on 16 March 1812, according to the Mount Barker Courier obituary notice on 1 March 1907, and died on 20 February 1907.  Joseph BRAENDLER and his wife Philippine [formerly PIETSCH] emigrated to South Australia in 1856 with their six children: Guido 13, Ewald 11, Emilie 9, Anna 7, Paul 4 and their baby Maria.  Their last two children, Elisabeth, who died at 3 years of scarlet fever, and Carl, born deaf, arrived later at their Monarto farm, 'Rosedale'.

​According to Joseph's naturalisation certificate, the family came from the small farming village of Fuerstenau (now known by its Polish name of Milin) near the large city of Breslau (now Wroclaw) on the River Oder, in the Province of Lower Silesia.  The open, flat very fertile plains of the 'Prussian granary' of Lower Silesia are similar to the Monarto plains near the River Murray, so our BRAENDLER forebears may have felt very much at home in South Australia, even though their land may not have been as productive as Silesia's rich soils.

Our family chose to come to Australia for different reasons to the original German settlers who had suffered persecution for their religious beliefs in the 1830's under King Frederick Wilhelm 111, till his death in 1840, and his successor, Frederick Wilhelm IV.  The LIEBELT and HARTMANN family histories, located in the State Library, and others give thorough accounts of the religious repression these fundamentalist Lutherans, of their emigration to South Australia in 1838, and of their settlement in Hahndorf and the Barossa Valley.  Joseph and Philippine were part of an unprecedented wave in the 1850-1859 era of well over one million Germans, more than double that in the 1840's, who decided to move to more liberal countries such as America, Canada and Australia.  All were in search of more freedom, happiness and individual self determination, both politically and economically than an increasingly rigid militaristic German state would offer. 

Joseph and Philippine, who married in the early 1840's, had survived the devastating harvest failures and widespread European famine of 1846-47, during which thousands of poor Germans starved to death, hunger revolts were harshly suppressed, and many emigrated in order to survive.  The following 1848 uprisings by newly elected liberals and democrats were particularly proactive in Breslau, which had become the centre of the German Liberation Movement.  Liberalists demanding a stable and united democratic government were strongly repressed by Frederick Wilhelm IV's reactionary forces.  

Many disillusioned academics and master craftsmen such as Carl LINGER (musician/composer), Richard SCHOMBURGK (botanist) and Carl MUECKE (pastor, educationalist) migrated to Adelaide in 1849 under the Berlin Emigration Society scheme.  At this time the new industrial revolution was also causing severe hardship amongst traditional craftsmen losing their trades to manufacturing industries, such as the famed Silesian weavers losing their home-based craft to new woollen factories, in rapidly growing cities.  The discovery of incredibly rich deposits of gold in Australia and California increased investors' capital wealth in those German cities.  A golden era of industrial boom saw rural societies left in increasing poverty, and their social fabric disintegrating s country folk then shifted to the cities for work.  Joseph trade was listed as brewer and distiller on emigration, an indication that he was one of the displaced farming population, as he soon took up farming once in Australia.  

The BRAENDLER's would have been most concerned that their children's future looked grim if choosing to remain in Silesia.  Family legend has it that Joseph's younger brother was sent on a mission around the world: to California, Canada, and South Australia, to determine which society promised the best future for the BRAENDLER family. While no record of his arrival in Adelaide has been found, he obviously visited the Hahndorf settlement, then established for over fifteen years, and highly recommended its potential to his brother.  Legend also says that he was killed by a falling tree while here.  

Joseph and Philippine may also have been influenced by Johann KULVER's popular 'Colonial Experiences', an account of his year in South Australia which was widely circulated throughout Germany when he returned home. While records show that other BRAENDLERS families [also perhaps under the name of BRENDLER] chose to migrate to Russia, Canada and the USA [Ohio, Wisconsin and Louisiana], in the 1850's, Joseph and his family were the only BRAENDLERS who decided to come to Australia.  They left behind a Prussia which was soon to become a powerful nation-state under BISMARCK's rule of 'iron and blood', rather than one espousing the freely determined votes and speeches aspired to in the 1848 revolution.  

​We descendants can be grateful that our forebears chose to emigrated to a society which has always adhered to such democratic ideals.  The former Breslau rural area still appears very much as it would have 150 years ago, apart from farm mechanisation.  In 1980, labourers still harvested manually in the fields, and animals were kept close to farmhouses with steep high pitched snow roofs.  The beautiful fortress city of Breslau [now Wroclaw in Poland], has been rebuilt since being besieged and heavily bombarded by the 6th Army Soviet troops for four months in 1945, and is now a commercial centre of over 650,000.

All German citizens were expelled when eastern German boundaries were redrawn to be part of Poland.  Poland was assigned to Russia by the Allies at the Potsdam Conference at the end of WWII.  However, Russian Communist rule ended in 1990, with much freer conditions for travellers, so a visit to our forebears' home territory is highly recommended.  Fuerstenau is now known by its Polish name of Milin (in the Municipality of Mietkuw) and is situated in the Landscape Park "Valley Bystzycy" in Wroclaw.  

Much of the village was destroyed by fire in 1824, but was rebuilt.  In 1254, the original village of Stros [meaning 'watchtower'] was renamed Furstenow in 1297.  

According to Wikipedia, it was a market town under Henry III, duke of Wroclaw.  By 1795, the village of renamed Fuerstenau, which means 'princely cornfield', had a Renaissance palace built in 1750.  It was surrounded by a moat and built on a horse-shoe plan.  It was then an elementary school, and has now become private apartments.  Other landmarks see are the Kosciul parish church, Mihal Arnhaniola, was built in the 14th century, was partly destroyed by fire in a war, then restored several times, and also the monument to St John of Nepamuk.  Having travelled to Wroclaw, I found it a beautiful old German like city on a wide river, but with typically ugly Communist-built tower apartments on sites bombed during WWII.  Most historical records were also destroyed, so a search for family information may prove difficult.

Joseph and Philippine certainly made a wise choice to migrate away from what would have been the certainty of a sad and poverty-stricken life for we descendants had they stayed.  Joseph and Philippine left Hamburg on 1st June 1856 in the small ship 'Adele', a Danish vessel of 450 tons, captained by JF MUELLER, following a Southeast Asian sea route to Manilla in the Philippines before heading to Sydney and Port Adelaide.  They disembarked on 14th September 1856 after a voyage of 106 days, which was at least two months faster than the original settlers' voyages in 1838.

The 'Adele' was managed by a crew of 25.  Amongst its 121 passengers were 11 German families and over 30 young single men, possibly displaced farmers, but more likely draft dodgers from compulsory military service.  We have no account of life on board the Adele but believe it would have been similar to that of the 'Steinward' which left Hamburg six months previously with 106 passengers.  One traveller, Dr BRAUER, wrote that meals were cooked for the passengers, with sauerkraut, potatoes and pickled meat forming the main menu. "The lack of [fresh] vegetables were the cause of scurvy, a diseased state of the blood with swollen gums, loose teeth, liver spots and prostration, attacking sailors and people who fed on salt meat and lacked vegetables". The dangers of sea life!

Typical rations for each adult were as followers: Mondays: 1/2 lb (about 400gms) of pickled pork, sauerkraut and potatoes. Tuesdays: 1/2 lb pickled beef, legumes (dried peas, beans or lentils).  Wednesdays: fish, legumes and potatoes.  Thursdays: 1/2 lb pickled beef, rice with syrup and raisins. Fridays: 1/2 lb pickled pork, legumes and potatoes.  Saturdays: pearl barley with syrup and dried fruit.  Sundays, however, were worth waiting for: 1/2 lb pickled beef, 1/2 lb flour (for a pudding) and dried fruit, and a bottle of wine for 8 persons.  

​Joseph resumed his former trade in taking a position as publican st the Balhannah Hotel soon after their arrivals hill settling his family in Balhannah.  He soon purchased a property near the present Balhannah railway station.  He later sold this property for a good price to the government for a railway line to go through to Melbourne. He then appears to have taken the opportunity in a free country to buy his own farming land as his forebears had in Germany.  Joseph farmed for 10 years in the Onkaparinga Valley, planting his paddocks mainly to wheat, and also had a bakery in Mt Barker, purchasing processed flour from WITTWER's Mill at Hahndorf.  The BRAENDLER family would have known many locals at Hahndorf."

Reg Butler College in the Wattles, Reg Butler p270.

"Pastor Fritzsche baptised Martha shortly after her birth.  Following a Hahndorf Academy education (1860's), Martha married Monarto farmer and former school chum Paul BRAENDLER. For a year the young couple lived at Monarto and then with Martha's father at Paechtown, before taking up the former DOLLING farm on Windmill Hill.  Martha raised a family of four sons and four daughters.  An expert cook and housekeeper, she instilled in her children the same careful principles which led to her own success.  The  BRAENDLER's took a sincere interest in the affairs of their Lutheran Church.  They were privileged to celebrate their diamond wedding shortly before Paul died.  In good health until just prior to her own death, Martha survived her elder sister Johanne MUELLER by only a couple of months." Reg Butler, A College in the Wattles, p400.

"Paul had all of his education at the Hahndorf Academy and for a time became an ostler at the King of Hanover Hotel in Rundle St., an important gathering place for Adelaide's Germans.  Mine host was Adolph BARTEL, later Mayor of Adelaide and father-in-law to Sir Hans HEYSEN. In 1873, Paul married school chum Martha PAECH and came into possession of a magnificent property formerly belonging to Mrs TW BOEHM's father Gottfried DOLLING, on the slopes of Windmill Hill near Hahndorf.  This estate, Paul aptly named 'Model Farm'.  To and from school, College schoolboys had many adventures with the BRAENDLER's bull on alert at the homestead gate.  Paul and his large family took an active part in community affairs, particularly with the Lutheran Church and the local Agricultural Society".  

Martha's oldest sister Johanne Caroline PAECH [1848-1924] married Paul's older brother, Guido BRAENDLER [1843-1925].

TROVE:  The Golden Wedding celebrations.

"Golden Wedding, BRAENDLER-PAECH, Mr & Mrs Paul BRAENDLER, of Ambleside, celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding day at the residence of their daughter, Mrs W. NITSCHKE, Littlehampton, on Tuesday, July 8th.  The happy old couple were most fortunate in regard to the weather; the sun shining brightly throughout the day, while the night was bright and calm.  The festivities were carried on till the early hours of the morning, and were counted by all as a great success.  Mr Paul BRAENDLER and Miss Martha PAECH, youngest daughter of the late Gottleib [sic] PAECH, were married by the Rev. STREMPLE in St Michael's Church, Ambleside, on July 8th, 1874.  On July 8th, 1924, the Rev C.F. BRAUN conducted a similar ceremony at Mrs NITSCHKE's homestead, and the service, which was largely attended by relatives and friends, was a most impressive one.  After the ceremony the pastor delivered a find address, reviewing the lives of Mr and Mrs BRAENDLER during the past 50 years, and at the conclusion, on behalf of the sons and daughters, he handed to the aged couple a beautiful illuminated address, appropriately worded.  After the ceremony an adjournment was made to the spacious barn, where a sumptuous wedding breakfast was laid out.  

The barn had been entirely converted under the able direction of Mrs H. EASLEA & Mrs HOMAN, wife of the pastor.  The decorations were beautiful, and were indeed a credit to those who were responsible for their erection.  Two long tables ran down sides of the building, and these were loaded with the good things provided by the different members of the family.  The tables were decorated with golden Iceland poppies and maiden hair fern, while narrow gold streamers were festooned from high standing silver vases of poppies on the whole length of the festive board.  On the bridal table, about the centre, stood a large two-decker wedding cake, prettily ornamented.  The ceiling decorations were also well and artistically thought out.  In the centre of the room was suspended a huge wedding veil, and radiating from the top of this were coloured streamers.  Silver wattle and pine branches were added to the man decorations, the whole combining to form a very pretty setting.  Now add to all that the 80 odd happy and smiling faces, the laughter and joviality and with youth intermingling harmoniously with age and the pictures is complete.  Ye.....aproned and capped waitresses were kept busy for a long time attending to the wants of the hungry guests, and those who did service in that capacity were Mrs Harold EASLEA and Misses G. FUGE, ROTHE, SCHMEISS, JAENSCH, HOMAN, KRAMM and PAECH [2].

Seated at the main table on each side or Mr. and Mrs. BRAENDLER were their four sons - Messrs, Hugo, William, Otto, and Edwin and their four daughters - Mrs W. NITSCHKE  [Littlehampton], Mrs H. WUTTKE [Oakbank], Mrs J RODERT [Echunga] and Mrs B PAECH [Loxton].  At the appointed time Mr B. NITSCHKE [grandson] submitted the loyal toast and when that had been duly honoured Mr. L. von DOUSSA was called on to propose the toast, "The Bride and Bridegroom".  In doing so, Mr von DOUSSA spoke of the early days, when he and Mr BRAENDLER were at school together, and dwelt on the early life of the couple.  He said that the BRAENDLER family was known throughout the district for its integrity.  As a family they were most loyal, and none of the members had drifted very from the old home.  In fact with one exception, all the children resided within a radius of 20 miles. The occasion they celebrated was a unique one.  The couple had reared eight children, and they must have felt proud and gratified to have everyone present with them on the occasion of their golden wedding.  

Mrs C. NITSCHKE, another old school made of Mr BRAENDLER, supported Mr von DOUSSA's remarks, and spoke of the popularity of the aged couple who he hoped, would spend many more happy days together.  Mr H.A. MONKS, who also attended the same school, said that, although he was very unwell, he head not been able to resist the temptation to be present at his old friends wedding anniversary.  He was very pleased indeed that they had reached their golden wedding and he wished to heartily congratulate them, and express the hope that they would enjoy the best of health for many years to come.   Mr BRAENDLER rose to respond mids loud applause.  He said his first duty was to extend a most hearty welcome to all his friends, and he did so with all his heart.  His second duty was to thank the different speakers for their kindly references and the good things said about himself and his wife.  He also wished to thank Pastor BRAUN for his fine address.  

Mr Alf MONKS next submitted the toast, "Family of Mr and Mrs Paul BRAENDLER", and Mr HUGO replied on behalf of his brothers, while Mrs NITSCHKE's son replied on behalf of the girls.  After the conclusion of the toast list the diners arose in order to allow the waitresses to clear the room for the next sitting, and altogether 180 guests sat down to the breakfast.  It was impossible to provide amusement for the big company present, but Mrs NITSCHKE generously threw her house open to all, and parties assembled in each room round good, old fashioned fires and yarned, had games of different kinds, or indulged in music: Miss ZIMMERMANN, of Adelaide delighting her hearers with her singing and playing.  At about 8 o'clock the Hills Central Brass Band, under the conductorship of Mr A.M. COPPIN, arrived to liven up the proceedings.  Dancing and games passed the time till supper was called on, and well over 200 partook of the good things provided.  The party finally broke up at about 3 o'clock in the morning, everyone voting the function a complete success."
