Louise (Louisa) Friderike Wilhelmine ELTZE (ELTIZE)
Born: Wednesday 18 July 1865 at 11.45am.
Place: Penshurst, Craxton East, Victoria, Australia
Baptised: 24 July 1865
Died: ?

Father: Wilhelm Gottfried Ferdinand ELTZE b. 14 July 1817 Gustrow, Mecklengburg, Schwerin, Germany. d. 6 July 1907 (89 yrs) Natimuk, Victoria, Aust. Buried: Quatong Cemetery, Vectis, Victoria. Father Johann ELTZE (Hairdresser) Mother: Dorothea KLITZING
Wilhelm had a brother Walter ELTZE b. 1813 d. 1903 (90yrs) Occupation: School Teacher (Schodmaster)
Wilhelm's age was given as 42 on the marriage certificate, which would make his year of birth 1823. His date of birth in the Devotion Book given to them on their marriage has been altered. Originally written as 1823. it has been crossed out and 14th July 1817 has been written in the same writing, which corresponds with the age given on his death certificate. His actual age at marriage was therefore 47 years. Wilhelm was a Teacher at Vectis East Lutheran School, Victoria, Aust, where he composed and also translated music from German to English. Naturalised 1901 at 83 years of age. On the 24th December 1860 he arrived in the Colony of Victoria by the ship BOREAS from the Port Hamburg in Germany and that ever since his arrival, being a period of 40 years, been a resident in said State of Victoria.

Mother: Wilhelmine HINNEBERG (Rosina Wilhelmina HINNEBERG) b: 23 September 1845 Kalbe, Rosenburg, Prussia m. 20 September 1864 St Michael's Church, Hochkirk, according to the Evengelical Lutheran Church by Paster C.W. Schurmann. They were living at Rosebery, Mt Rouse then later moved to Horsham, Victoria, Aust. d. 14 December 1894 (49 yrs) Horsham, Victoria, Aust. Cause: Intestinal Obstruction Buried. Quantong, Cemetery, Vectis, Victoria. Father Christoph HINNEBERG aka George Heinrich HINNEBERG (Waterman/Skipper) Mother Christione LEHMANN. aka Maria Christiana LEHMANN. Rosina and her siblings Immigrated to Australia, arriving 1 August 1848 on the ship LEONTINE - this should be corrected to Malvina Vidal arrived 5 Oct 1854, a Dutch ship 959 tons from Hamburg 11 July.
See my Hinneberg entry for a different explanation.
Rosina and her 2 brothers (Friedrich b.1838, d.1919 & Christoph b.16 Oct 1843 Gross Rosenburg, Germany. d.1879) whose father died and mother remarried to Adolph Berkholtz in Germany and became wards, after their mother died soon after reaching South Australia, of Johann their Uncle and Aunt Gottlieb LEHMANN and Karoline Sophie Amalie LEMM.
From South Australian Index - BERKHOLZ Carl Adolf Theodor aged 44 son of Andreas BERKHOLZ wed 1856-07-01 to RICHARDS Elizabeth aged 19 N John RICHARDS at Church Hoffnungsthal Bar A 27/465
They had 10 children, Adolph was a shoemaker.
Note: have received the Naturalization certificate for Wilhelmina's brother Freiderich and it states that he arrived in the colony of Victoria October 1854 on the ship Malvine Vidal then went to South Australia on ship "unknown" then travelled by land back to Victoria May 1856. I do wonder if Rosina is really Wilhelmina or another relation? On Wilhelmina's marriage certificate it states that her parents are Christoph HINNEBERG and Christiane LEHMANN.
Notes: Occupation when married - Domestic and she was 22 years
