Re Justus family in Australia from Germany
Johann Justus with his family was one of six winegrowers from Germany who arrived in Sydney Australia in 1838 on board the Kinnear.This first group of winegrowers were recruited in the Rheingau region of Hessen by Major Edward Macarthur for his brother William's property at Camden near Sydney.
Johann (John) Justus and his wife Appollonia Petri had a daughter Agnes they were all born in Erbach, Rheingau, Germany. Agnes married Francis Muller/Miller in Australia. I am a direct descendent of theirs and am trying to make the Germany connection. I am keen to know about Johann and Appollonia's ancestors as well as any other children they may have had in Germany.
I would love to hear from anyone who may be related. Thank you Julie Watt
