Danckert: Germany to Australia
I'd be interested in hearing from anyone with any kind of Australian 'Danckert' connections, as apparently there is only one line in the whole country!
The furthest back I have traced is 'Henry Danckert' (my g-g-g grandfather) who had at least one son, John Danckert (b. approx. 1871 somewhere in Australia, probably VIC or NSW). I've also found a 'Mary Danckert' born in NSW in 1867 to 'Henry F. Danckert' and 'Sarah A.' Perhaps Henry's wife was a Sarah? I'd love to find out.
I have found a shipping record for a 'Henry Danckert' who arrived in Australia aged 22 in January 1859. I suppose this could be him.
The family were originally from Germany.
