"Johann Friedrich Wilhelm PAECH had bought thirteen 80 acre sections, named ‘Friedrichstadt’, with the name particularly applied to a sub division of section 3913, Hundred of Kuitpo.  The name Friedrichstadt was replaced by Tangari in 1918 as part of renaming many places with German-origin names.  ‘Paechtown’,  is named for another early landowner, Christian PAECH.....subdivision of sections 3916 and  3917, Hundred of Kuitpo.

Johann Gottlieb LIEBELT, Johanna Caroline LUBASCH & their family home

Family History page 46  LIEBELT Family History page 46. "Johann Gottlieb was born 28 December 1823, probably in Nickern, Brandenburg, Prussia.  On arrival  on the 'Zebra' as a 14 year old he lived in Hahndorf with his parents at 106 Main Road, Hahndorf.  'It seems likely he was employed as a shepherd in the early days.  Gottlieb and Caroline were married 9 September 1847 by Pastor A.L.C. Kavel in the schoolroom at Hahndorf.  The witnesses were Gottlieb KUCHEL and Christian ZILM.  Caroline was the second daughter of Anna Dorothea GREISER, (1799-1864) the second wife of Gottfried LUBASCH (1790-1856)."

Authors Note: The marriage witnesses: 'Gottlieb KUCHEL' was possibly Johann Gottlieb KUCHEL b1821 from Langmeil, Brandenburg, who the following year [1848] married Maria Elizabeth BARTEL in the same school room.  Gottlieb KUCHEL was a 1C1R to Gottlieb LIEBELT & was 17 year old  & a labourer on the 'Prince George'.  Gottlieb KUCHEL was 26 years of age at this wedding.

The second witness 'Christian ZILM' was possibly Johann Christian ZILM who was a 39 year old day labourer on the 'Bengalee' with his wife  Anna Dorothea MATTISKE 28 years and two sons age 10 and 7 years. They had come from Goltzen, Brandenburg, Prussia [now known as Kolesin, Gmina Babimost, Lubusz Voivodeship, Poland]  where in 1826 Pastor KAVEL was a preacher.  Goltzen is only 4kms NE of Klemzig. Christian's brother Johann Gottlob ZILM & their sister Anna Dorothea ZILM were both on the 'Prince George' with Gottlieb LIEBELT's uncle, cousins and grandparents.  Christian ZILM would have been 48 years of age  when he attended the wedding in the schoolroom. The previous year Christian had remarried [after his 1st wife's Anna Dorothea MATTISKE's death in 1839] in the same school room to Christiane Caroline Louise KRÜGER.  [David Schubert 'Kavel's People']

LIEBELT Family History page 47. "Gottlieb and his wife were among the earliest settlers at Friedrichstadt but as his nick-name was "Squatter" it seems likely that he "squatted" on his selection before he formally took up the land.  On December 5, 1850, he became the registered owner of Section 3903 of the Hundred of Kuitpo.  This 80 acre section was purchased from Johan Friedrich PAECH of Grünthal for 80 pound.  Access was allowed to other settlers to the water pools on this property.  On this section Gottlieb built his first home of mud, straw and slabs.  This home stood until 1912 when it was destroyed in a disastrous bushfire.  The home had been replaced earlier by an all brick home - one of the first in the Hahndorf area to be built entirely of brick.  This home still stands on the property.  Over the years Gottlieb purchased and leased additional properties.  In February 1856 he paid 300 pound for 30 acres, part of section 3899.  ON October 16, 1866, he took over the lease of sections 3897, 3895 and 3884 and part of section 3896 in the Hundred of Kuitpo from Gottlob SCHULZ.  SCHULZ had leased this land in 1865 for 12 years from John HAGEN formerly of Echunga but then of overseas on the following conditions:  

  • 1. to erect substantial post and rail fences along certain boundaries, to keep the buildings in good order and to fallow 1/4 of the land which has been cultivated.  
  • 2. to cultivate land in the proper manner.  
  • 3.  to cart onto the said land a quantity of good manure equal in value to any straw which may have been removed therefrom.  
  • 4. not to take two successive crops of corn, grain or pulse of any kind from any part of the land.  
  • 5. to grub up by the roots all such trees as shall be required for fencing in or using on the said land.  
  • 6. not to cut down, grub up or destroy saving for fencing or using as aforesaid any gum or stringy bark or other timber or timberline trees without the previous consent in writing of the said J. HAGEN.  

In 1872, Gottlieb leased from the Incorporated Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, sections 3696, 3733, 5007 and parts of sections 3732 and 3698 in the Hundred of Macclesfield.  The annual rent was 20 pound per year plus 1/- per acre which was cultivated.  The land had to be cultivated within 4 years.   Gottlieb was a farmer; it appears likely that he also did some shearing"

Johanne Louise LIEBELT (1848-1940) married 4 May 1871 to Johann Gottlieb KUCHEL (1846-1923)

LIEBELT Family History page 49LIEBELT Family History page 49, '  Johanne Louise was born on June 15, 1848.  As a young woman Johanne worked as a domestic servant in various households.  She married Johann Gottlieb KUCHEL in St Michael's Church on May 4, 1871, Pastor STREMPEL officiating.  Gottlieb was born at Kirchenbergen near Hahndorf on April 21, 1846.  His parents were Johann Gottfried Erdmann KUCHEL and Johanne Dorothea Elisabeth born KUCHEL, who had emigrated the previous year from the German village of Lochow.  Immediately after their marriage Johanne and Gottlieb lived at Friedrichstadt on the Mount Barker Rd., then in Hahndorf in English St.  

They then moved, in about 1878, to part of Section 3913, in the Hundred of Kuitpo which Johanne's father had purchased.  Here Gottlieb built a home of slabs, straw and mud.  The home was demolished several years ago, the site now being marked by a few old trees.  Gottlieb was a carpenter, making rakes and other tools as well as hurdles for the Oakbank races.  Gottlieb died on October 31, 1923; Johanne reached the high age of 91 years passing away on March 29, 1940.  Both are buried in the Hahndorf cemetery where their grave is marked by a tombstone.  Their old homestead property is now owned and farmed by Mr K LIEBELT, a grandson of Johanne's brother August.

2nd son, 1st child, 2nd child: Johann Friedrich Wilhelm  LIEBELT

Johann Friedrich Wilhelm LIEBELT (1851-1925) married 20 April 1876 to Johanne Wilhelmine KLAEBSCH

Liebelt Family History page 56.  'Johann Friedrich Wilhelm was born at Friedrichstadt 10 October 1851. He was married in St Michael's Church by Pastor Strempel and Wilhelmine's parents were Johann Wilhelm KLAEBSCH nd Johanne Friedericke BÜTTNER who came from Bentnitz, Brandenburg, Prussia.  Wilhelm and Wilhelmine settled on parts of Section 3901 and 3902, Hd of Kuitpo, he later purchased Section 410.'  

Photo from the 'John MUELLER Photo Collection'. In 1975 it was described by Alan Wittwer in the Liebelt Family History book as 'the original home of timber frame construction still stands and is in good condition.' 

This half timbered home was dismantled on the 'Jurlique Farm' property about 2015c, it could not be seen from the dirt Liebelt Road, at Biggs Flat.,    


These photos above and the floor plans below were used to advertise this property for sale, 'Land held in the LIEBELT family for over 130 years, since 1874 - it is the end of an era'



Construction details of their home

On page 77 of the Hahndorf Survey, Volume 1 you will find the comparative frame of Fachwerk homes of Hahndorf and the frame work   on the right is from the 'Liebelt House', above..


The 82 acre is Certificate of Title Vol 5353 Folio 77, and 71 acres is Certificate of Title Vol. 5602 Folio 121, parts of the original Sections 3901 and 3902.

The horizontal pink road is Kangaroo Reef Road and where it becomes vertical it is Snelling Road. The bottom road near the 'Not for Sale' is Liebelt Road.

Where is it?

This ' Liebelt House' was located in the former 'Friedrichstadt', and the current Biggs Flat, and the property is now known as ‘Jurlique Farm'    The main entrance is off Liebelt Road, and it also abuts Kangaroo Reef and Snelling Road.  The property is 4 kms from Mylor and 6.5kms from Hahndorf.  It was recorded in the 1974/75  'Hahndorf Survey' and is now demolished.


Construction method by Lothar Brasse,  B.Architecture & Heritage Consultant, September 2022.

Dimensions. The footprint of this simple cottage was  10.85m x 5.36m that is, almost exactly 2 squares next to each other measuring 5.36m x 5.36 each suggesting that its builder knew about good design principles and geometric proportions.  A 1 m wide door was located slightly off centre leading to the central brick-paved hall and kitchen ahead. This was a common German House plan with slight variations to those built at other Friedrichstadt locations, as well as all four of the 'Paechtown houses' and 'Wieth'’s house (also known as the 'Hoffmann house') on what is now the Beerenberg property.  

Walls  Wall construction was Fachwerk where every (approx. 150 x 150) square piece of redgum was identified using carved Roman numerals. Thus, every post, nogging and brace had an identification number to assist with on-site assembly. All timber connections were achieved using master-crafted joints which were then tightened by Stringy Bark dowels.

Braces were unique This 'Liebelt House' had the most exuberant timber display in Australia. Although a relatively small house, it has 4 braces on the principal façade. The less than 1m2 spaces between the timbers were filled with brick on the gable ends and lime washed mud on the long elevations. The plaster was applied to straw woven between sharpened timber staves which in turn were wedged between the lower groove and upper chiselled or augered holes.   Roof consisted of a series of trusses spaced approx. 600 (2 feet) apart securely braced and battened to take timber shingles. The corrugated iron was a later addition.

Lehmwickel  Boards wrapped in straw and clay (known as Lehmwickel literally mud-wraps) were wedged between the bottom chords of the roof trusses and once the final layer of chaff/mud mix was applied over the whole area formed a sturdy attic floor. The attic was an extension of the floor plan where goods were stored, cottage industries were carried out and ‘that’s where the boys slept’. Access to the attic was via an internal steep stair next to the entry door.  In other similar houses an external gable stair was also used. A return verandah seemed to have been part of the original construction.  Windows and doors were expertly made by a local joiner.  Hearths and chimneys were soft-fired clay bricks. A later lean-to addition at the back incorporated a large stone fireplace for the kitchen and dining areas as well as a step-down cellar.

Family information

Anecdotally in the sales information it was stated that this home was built in 1874.  Johann Friedrich Wilhelm was the eldest son, his older sister had married in 1871 and he would have needed to have supplied his bride with a home, so it is possible that it was built before he married in Autumn of 1876 when he was 25 years of age.   From his new home he could look over the hills and see the home he was born in, which I call the 'LIEBELT/LUBASCH family home, just over a kilometre away, a photo of which is in the top right hand corner of this article.

Johann Gottlieb LIEBELT [1853-1938] married on 1 May, 1879 to Johanne Dorathea SAWADE [1858-1937]

LFH page 59

Liebelt Family History page 59.   'On February 26,1853, Johann Gottlieb was born at Friedrichstadt.  In his youth he went sheep-shearing, going as far afield as Yorke Peninsula and Port Lincoln. Some of his brothers as well as many of the men of the neighbourhood also went. On May 1, 1879, he married Johanne Dorathea Sawade in St Michael's Church, Hahndorf, Pastor STREMPEL officiating.  Dorathea was born at Glembach, Germany, on October 28, 1858; her parents were Christian SAWADE and Johanne Dorothea born KLAEBSCH.  

The SAWADE family left Hamburg on May 1, 1877, and arrived at Port Adelaide on August 1, of the same year.  They settled at Salem but Dorothea went into service the neighbourhood of Hahndorf.  Gotllieb farmed various sections of land between Friedrichstadt and Mt Barker, taking up a number of the sections which his father had either bought or leased  [nos. 3884, 3895 and the land from the Society of the Propagation of the gospel.]. Much of this land is still farmed by descendants.  Gottlieb survived his wife by only six months - Dorothea died on December 8, 1937, and Gottlieb on June 14, 1938. Both are buried in the Hahndorf Public Cemetery where a tombstone marks their grave'.
