Carl Heinrich Otto 'Charles Harry' JÄCKEL from Padligar, Brandenburg, Prüßen (Prussia)

At the Teutonia Bar, Padligar ? C. H. Otto Jäckel is at front with the dog.
Carl Heinrich Otto JÄEKEL or JÄCKEL was born in 1885 in the village of Padligar, Brandenburg, Prüßen (Prussia). Padligar is now the Polish town of Podlegórz, in the Gmina Trzebiechów district, Zielona Góra County, Western Poland. From Padligar, JÄCKEL emigrated out of Deutschland and arrived 1911 in Port Adelaide, South Australia where he took work in Runde Street, Adelaide as a fireman. After a period in Adelaide he went up to the Gulf St Vincent seaboard of South Australia at Port Pirie where new smelting works were providing employment. Like many refugees of Teutonic militarism, he married out of the émigré German community, to Beaconsfield, Tasmania-born, Florence May JOBLING, daughter of John Wales & Elizabeth Dickinson Jobling, The marriage took place at Port Augusta in 1913, Afterwards he became known as Charles Harry JACKEL. The Jackels had two daughters born around the time of the outbreak of dying in the maestrom of enmity and grief that came somehow to be called The Great War. The girls were Rubina Florence Jäckel (1914-1992) born Semaphore, Port Adelaide; and Edna Louise Jäckel (1916-1916) born Adelaide, and died in infancy. After his wife died in 1918 in North Adelaide, South Australia, Jäckel went outback to the Barrier Range mines, and remarried at Broken Hill, New South Wales, to Alice Gwentha HUGHES, a teacher, born on the Mount Korong Goldfields in Wedderburn, Victoria. After a time the Jäckels moved east through New South Wales to Sydney, where C. H. Otto Jäckel worked as a Seaman, and his wife as a Teacher, residing at No.722 Forest Road, Peakhurst, Sydney. Charles Harry JÄCKEL worked in the thick of cosmopolitan Australian and in frontier workplaces across three states. He and his family and his descendants entirely integrated into the British Australian appearance. He died on the 23rd September 1962 at La Perouse, Sydney. Alice Gwentha Jäckel survived him to die at Peakhurst, Sydney in 1974. [Details & Photographs courtesy of Pamela Graham]

Friedrich Wilhelm JÄCKEL born 1848 Bolkenhain, Silesia, Prussia

Friedrich Wilhelm JÄCKEL was born in about 1848 in Bolkenhain, near Hohen Friedeburg, Kreis Jauer, Schlesien, Prüßen, Deutschland (Silesia, Prussia). Bolkenhain is now Bolków, Gmina Bolków, in the Jawor district of southwestern Poland . Like many an émigré from his part of the Eastern Europe, F.W. Fritz Jaeckel was a Tischler, (Joiner / Cabinet-Maker) by profession. He emigrated on the vessel “KONOOWARRA’ and arrived at the Port of Sydney, New South Wales on the 31st July 1881. Friedrich Wilhelm JACKEL was married in 1889 in Sydney, New South Wales to Sarah Jane STEPHENSON. She was born in 1858 at Milton Farlam, Cumberland, England. In Sydney the Jackel’s settled first at Granville and then at Kogarah and produced four sons in four years: Karl Heinrich ‘Charles Henry’ 1890 Granville; Frederick Leslie Lindsay Jackel born 1891 in Kogarah; Wilhelm ‘William’ Norman Jackel born 30 Jan 1893 in Kogarah; and Gordon Arthur Jackel born 5 Apr 1894 Kogarah. Friedrich Wilhelm JÄCKEL became a widower with four young sons on the death of Sarah Jackel in 1896. How he managed to work and look after the four boys is unknown, but work he did, as a Cabinetmaker for Anthony Hordern and Sons.
Friedrich Wilhelm JÄCKEL died from injuries received in a train derailment at Sydenham, NSW on the way home from work. The terrible accident occurred Friday evening the 15th February 1901 and nine people died as a result. F. W. Jaeckel lingered in hospital to die on Sunday 19 February 1901. I have not discovered whom then raised the Jackel boys, but it may be it was their grandmother Jane Stephenson for she lived in Kogarah until she died in 1936. Though their father died before he was ever naturalised, the lads were born in Australia of a British-born mother and so had British citzenship themselves. The Jackel boys came to manhood right on the cusp of the Outbreak of War, and the younger three of them enlisted, and all survived the maelstrom to return to Kogarah.

Karl Wilhelm JÄCKEL b.1862 Russendorf, Silesia Pilbara, Western Australia
Karl Wilhelm JÄKEL, son of Carl 'Charles' JÄCKEL, was born about 1872 in Russendorf, Kreis Waldenburg, in the Owl Mountains (Eulengebirge) in the south of Provinz Breslau, Schlesien, Prüßen (Silesia, Prussia). Russendorf is now called Rusinowo, and Waldenburg is Walbrzych, in southwestern Poland. Carl Wilhelm JÄKEL is reported to have immigrated with the wife and family of the Music Teacher, August Gottfried FIEBIG, who from the nearby Russendorf town of Peterswaldau, Schlesien, Prüßen. Frau FIEBIG and four FIEBIG children embarked with young Karl Wilhelm JÄKEL on the ship "MARSALA" which arrived in the Port of Adelaide, South Australia, in mid 1882. August Gottfried FIEBIG had emigrated some months earlier on the 'BARCELONA' arriving in March 1882. Karl Wilhelm JÄKEL was naturalized at the age of just twelve (12) years, in Angaston, in the Barossa valley, South Australia on the 24 February 1884. At the age of 28 Karl Wilhelm JÄEKEL was married on the 10th January 1901 to 32 year-old, Ada May FRANK, daughter of Francis FRANK of Adelaide, at the Residence of R. Ransom, Port Adelaide, South Australia.
Later, in the Pilbara of Western Australia ,in 1915- 1916 Karl Wilhelm Jackel was suspected of being an Enemy alien and interrogated and put under investigation. On the 8th February 1916 Karl Wilhelm JÄKEL wrote asking the Government agency to forward a copy of his Alien's Naturalisation Memorial, saying that the original Oath of his Aliens Memorial which was taken in 1884 under the agency of Commissioner Von Bertouch in Tanunda, South Australia, after he arrived as an emigrant in the ship 'S.S.MARSALA' in 1882. In the 20 March 1916 Jackel wrote from Holden, near Meekatharra, Western Australia saying he had lost the original of his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation as it was destroyed by what may well have been a crimnal persecution act of arson in a fire in which his Miner's Camp was completely burnt at Meekatharra on the 12th August 1915.

Paul Carl JÄCKEL -born German Empire, Victim of an Official Australian Enmity
Paul Carl JÄCKEL was born in Germany on 1st August 1885. He arrived in Melbourne, Victoria on the brink of war, on 29 May 1914, or about one month before the assasination of the Austrian Hapsburg Archiduke Ferdinand in 29 June 1914, which soon led to the declaration of War on Germany. Paul Carl Jaeckel was first registered as an Enemy Alien in 1916-1917 at Berwick, Victoria. Co-incidently, where members of the wider Jackel clan had pioneered for fifty years. [Civil Alien Victoria, C.A.V. number 3756]. This did nothing to help him. for he was Interned at the Prisoner of War Camp at Langwarrin for the duration of the 1st World War. After the tragedy of World War One, he was freed. He became a professional fisherman at Gipsy Point, near Cann River in East Gippsland, where he was known to also befriend men from the nearby Aboriginal community at Lake Tyers. It seems that Paul Jaeckel never married. Unfortunately, living a life of peace and close to nature, he never managed to become naturalised. Maybe, having endured the enmity of his adopted country for any so called allegiance to the homeland he had fled, he thought it impossible to happen again. After the 2nd World War was declared he was again Interned, in about 1942, this time as a 'slave' compulsory worker, first of all at the Macedon Forest Camp, and then at the Mt Disappointment Forest Camp. He walked out of that camp one Sunday morning on the 19th May 1945 and threw a rope of the branch over a gum tree and hung himself. World War Two ended about three months later. His death at Mt Dissapointment was registered at Kilmore, but he was buried at the Fawkner Cemetery, in northern Melbourne. An inquest into his death concluded that he had no relatives in Australia.

Wilhelm Friedrich JAKOWSKI -born Germany, married Georgina DUGINS 1879
Wilhelm Friedrich JAKOWSKI, son of Nikolaus Jakowski, was born in 1839 at Klein Marienau, in Silesia, Prussia. He appears to have arrived in Australia in about 1875, or, at least by 1879 when he was married to Georgina Dugins in Victoria. They may have struggled in their early years of family life for a 'Mrs JANKOWSKY' who is probably Georgina Jakowski, recieved assistance from the Melbourne Deutcher Krankenverein (Sick & Relief Society) in 1884. It is known that Wilhelm F JAKOWSKI 'was at first a baker and had a bakery in Melbourne.' He also is said to have had a farm in the Yarra Valley at Kangaroo Ground. 'In 1889 he sold his bakery, bought some more land in Kangaroo Ground and then sold to a lady named Rose Coleman'- but the reasons for the comings and goings are not known. How he obtained land without being Naturalised is a mystery, but he may have waited to the end of lease-improvement-buy land scheme, and so, become Naturalised in 1904, and maybe he had used an alias, for a 'Harry Jakovsky' took his Aliens Memorial that year. If so, it was also on the brink of his own end, for W. F. Jakowski died in 1905 in Kangaroo Ground, near Melbourne. After he died the 'great secret of his life before 1879 came out.' For he still had another wife and family back in Germany. 'He disappeared overnight from Berlin in Germany in 1873 leaving his German(!) wife, his little son and his little daughter. His story, in terms of the how and when he left Germany is unknown, and a mystery also surrounds the way and the timing of his arrival in Australia. 'When he married Georgina Dugins he told lies about his age and his family status.' After he died the truth was found out.' It seems he tried to represent himself as having a Jewish mother. In fact his whole in Germany was and still is Roman Catholic. Quotes from, and family information courtesy of his German descendant, Dr. Andreas Hösch, of Berlin, Germany, October 2011.

This man is regarded as a good citizen by all who know him."Josch was Registered as an Enemy Alien in Mildura He was finally able to take the Oath in the Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation at melbourne on the 11th April 1921.

Friedrich JUNGBLUT
Friedrich 'Fritz' JUNGBLUT, who arrived in the Port of Melbourne on 21st August 1911 on the ship "SEYDLITZ" from Deutschland with his family, had emigrated under contract to an Australia Glass Manufacturer. He was the son of Heinrich JUNGBLUT of Wittenburg, in the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg. Fritz was born in Wittenburg, in the Ludwigslust District of Mecklenburg, on 20th November 1868. This is not the more famous large town of Wittenberg of Luther's story. In terms of occupation Jungblut was an artisan, though he calls himself a labourer on his memorial, it is shown that others considered him to be a highly-sought-after and professional Glass-Blower. On the 26th May 1924 when he completed his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation as a British subject in Australia he was aged 55 years, was 5 foot 6 inches in height, with grey eyes, grey hair, and living at No. 8 Globe Street, Yarraville, from where he was working as a Labourer at the Australian Glass Manufacturing Company, in Spotswood. He was then living with his wife, Louise Auguste Jungblut, aged 50, who was born at Brunshausem bei Stade, Deutschland,and they intended to settle permanently in Australia. One of his testimonials was given by the Melbourne-born Henry Schober, Hotelkeeper of Yarraville. During the period of the 'not so' Great War, Fritz Jungblut was Registered as an Alien at Yarraville, where he had to make an Alien's report every week at the local Police station. The Jungbluts then had two daughters, Mrs Rosa Macregor of 45 Francis St, Yarraville, and Elli Elisabeth Emilie Jungblut, who lived at the Globe Street address. He had lived in Yarraville for 13 years with the family since they emigrated in 1911. He was investigated throughly during the war, and was found to be able to read and write in English He provided the investigators with complete referees and registration cards. It was concluded that the Jungbluts were quiet hardworking people, who though they had no property (luckily for them or it would likely have been confiscated during the war), but hoped to be able to buy their own home once they were naturalised. His daughter Elli, born on 17th November 1899 at Wirges, Westerwald, Germany, and who was then working for the Australian Jewel Case Company, in Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne was naturalised in 1924 at the same time.

  4. I'm so sorry- I've looked at this blog so many times but didn't scroll ack down to the comments (not the brightest spark now am I?!)
    I'm a Jestrimski. Im still trying to find out Johann Jakob's parents. It's nought that his mother fled a war torn area when he was a baby, which may be another reason it's complicated to find him. I am also unable to find anything on his wife Amalie. There are so many different spellings for both of their names.

    I love the information you have put together. It's great :)
