SEEKAMP of HANNOVER
SEEKAMP. Henry SEEKAMP
I am looking for the Heritage links, parents, place, dates etc for four SEEKAMP pioneers in Australia.
This includes HENRY SEEKAMP of the radical newspaperman and publisher who became infamous/famous in the people's cause, and gained EUREKA STOCKADE fame, in Ballarat Victoria. It is said he was born in London, but I believe he may have been an English-speaking Hannoverian conected to the following.
1. Diederich SEEKAMP born about 1821, Hannover, arrived 1846 Adelaide South Australia, married 1854 Amelia VOIGT at Buchsfelde, near GAWLER, South Australia. Six children born in South Australia.
2. Rebecca 'Becky' SEEKAMP, born 19 Dec 1827, Achim, Hannover, married to Diedrich Heinrich WEIDENHOFER (born 5 Mar 1818, Baden, Hannover? ) before arriving in Adelaide, South Australia. Of their ten children, eight were born in Adelaide. S.A. The WEIDENHOFER's arrived South Australia 1854 on the 'Reiherstieg'.
3. Catherina SEEKAMP born 1828/1829 ?, married 8 Feb 1855 in North Adelaide, South Australia, the 2nd wife of Johann BOHLMANN,(tinsmith / machinist) born 1813, Baden.
4. Henry SEEKAMP, [Heinrich SEEKAMP], In Ballarat by 1851.
Reported to have married Clara Maria DUVAL [nee LODGE] by whom he had three or four children. Died 19 Jan 1864 in Queensland, Australia.
I Suspect Diederich SEEKAMP, CatherinaSEEKAMP and Heinrich SEEKAMP arrived in Adelaide, South Australia on either the ship 'Pauline' arrved Adelaide 27th September 1846 from Bremen OR the Heerjebhoy Rustomjee PATEL arriving in Adelaide, S.A. on 29 October 1846.
