Abstract (in English)

South Australia was settled in 1836 on the basis of voluntary colonisation and the principle of a 'non-denominational and Christian civilisation'. With the assisstance of George Fife Angas, a leading figure in the settlement of the new colony, a congregation of 'Old Lutherans' fleeing from religious persecution in the Prussian provinces, arrived in South Australia at the end of 1838. The first German settlers accommodated their traditional farmlet villages within the established 80 acre subdivision pattern of the colony.
