As 'Robert Smith' he joined the 5th Australian Infantry regiment in about 1885 in which time he had twice taken an oath of allegiance and served with the citizen reserve forces for 22 years, being 'granted a good discharge' on his retirement on the 15th March 1907. The Smith family had gone quite incognito in respect to their German origins to such an extent that Robert Smith was missed completely as being a person of Enemy Alien birth and so escaped notice by the normal officious busybody meddlesomeness of the self-important Authorities and so was neither Naturalised nor Registered as an Enemy Alien during the entire period engaged with the obsession and enmity of the not-so Great War. Smith was still married to Mary Ann Smith, and had three sons and a daughter well into middle age when he finally came out of his incognito and took the oath of his Aliens Memorial and was Naturalised from where he had Retired at No.9 Milroy Street, Brighton, Victoria on the 3rd March 1924. When asked was he registered as an enemy alien the document reads: 'No. Does not know why." One of Smith son served with the A.I.F. Maybe 'Mr. Smith' had been an enemy and a spy for all of that time, and had spent the war passing national secrets from a dinghy moored off Middle Brighton Jetty from the daily leisure of the fishingboat bobbing swells to all the German submarines lurking under the surface of Port Phillip Bay.
William SMITH / Wilhelm SCHMIDT
William SMITH / Wilhelm SCHMIDT was born on the 26th February 1849 in Berlin, Brandenburg, Prussia.

It would seem from another recorded Arrival in April 1913 and a record of business separation published in Melbourne in 1903 that Stappers was in the clothing business between various British colonies in the Asia Pacific zone and likely spent some time in India before coming on to Australia.

Joseph Wilhelm STEINHAUSER

Louis Ludwig STEINICHE / STEINWCHE - arrived Port Melbourne per the "CHIMBORAZO" September 1877 age 30

Friedrich Wilhelm STEINICKE -from Germany, married Amelie Hannah DIBBLE 1897

I had the good fortune to find on the web a paper that you had written about Germans departing Germany because of the rise of militarism in the late 1800s. In my grandfather’s case we were not sure whether it was militarism or religious persecution.

I (Geoffrey Steinicke) am the grandson of Friedrich Wilhelm (Fritz) STEINICKE born in 1862 in Göritz, Uckermark, brandenburg (according to his Naturalisation Paper) which is near Prenzlau. His Marriage Certificate reveals he married Amelia Hannah DIBBLE in South Yarra on 11th October 1897.

In October, my wife and I visited Goritz. There is a huge church at Goritz built in 1250 – I guess it is Lutheran. Unfortunately it was not open, but we took some names and phone numbers off the Notice Board for further follow up.

The Marriage Certificate lists his father as Christian STEINICKE (engine driver) and his mother as Wilhelmine UCKERT. Fritz Steinicke’s occupation was listed as boot maker.

According to other documents I obtained, he boarded the S/S Hohenzollern in Bremen in 1888 and landed in Adelaide in August of that year. Amelia Dibble was born in Adelaide and lived in Gawler SA. The Dibbles, of which there are many in SA, are from Glamorgan (Wales).

He went back to Germany – my father told me that he wanted to see if things had ‘improved’. Apparently not, as he migrated again, this time on the S/S OLDENBURG which left Bremen in 1891 and arrived in Adelaide or Melbourne (not sure) in October of that year.

His Naturalisation paper dated May 1897 shows that he gave his address as Victoria.

The family home was in Holland Road, Blackburn,. They had eight children who attended the Blackburn Primary School in Whitehorse Road. Fritz Steinicke passed away in August 1924.

Albert Georg Johann Werner STEINIGER - Enemy Alien. Internee - Repatriated to Germany per transport EUREKA 29 May 1919

Steiniger emigrated out of Deutschland via England and arrived in Australia on the ship MEDIC on the 3rd November 1911 at Albany, Western Australia. Upon disemabrking he lived variously at Moora, Kalgoorlie, Wongan Hills, and in Perth, WA before immigraating east to Sydney, NSW and then Melbourne, Victoria. Werner Steiniger was so determined to avoid the coming European war that he was twice Naturalised in Australia. This meant he was able to avoid the war, but, sadly, not as a free citizen of Australia. He first took the oath of his Aliens Memorial at No. 69 Union street, Pyrmont, Sydney, NSW, on the 13th May 1913. He had then been recently working as a Farmer. Then, after two years in Australia, at age 23, Steiniger was working as a Tutor residing at No. 100 Chapel Street, Balaclava, Melbourne when he swore the Oath of his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation on the 11th November 1913. Later, even though he was likely a refuge of the annexed former-French territory of Alsace-then Lorraine, Steiniger was arrested as an Enemy Alien because he had formerly been an Army Officer in the Reich and so became Prisoner of War and an Internee. - After the war Albert Georg Johann Werner Steiniger was Repatriated to Germany per the transport EUREKA on the 29 May 1919.

Sept 9th 1915

To: Mr Attlee Hunt Secretary, Department of External Affairs
-[ Received Sep 11 1915]

Dear Sir,

Would you kindly look into the true facts of my Application for Naturalization just after the declaration of War between England and Germany. Constable Ellis came to see me to inquire was I a British Subject. I said ‘Yes’ for about 34 years. He asked me for my Papers. I told him I either lost (them) in my travels or left them behind in Cape Town with some of my other things. I had to leave in a great hurry to catch the Boat I was coming out by. I only had one hour from the time I seen the Chief Officer on Board the Boat in the Bay till he left Anchor and Sailed.

At the Constable’s suggestion for me to get naturalized again, I took the Oath before Mr Harris, P.M., sent in my application.

I was born in Hanover not far away from Hamburg on April 7th 1861, left Germany by my Father’s wish in 1875 to England and stayed there about 4 months, took to the Sea, sailed on the American Coast 3 ½ years, arrived at Cape Town 1879, sailed on the Coast for some time, got Naturalized in 1880, enlisted Cape Town Mounted Rifles for a time of service in the Basuto War 1881 to 1882.

Got a letter through my father from the Prussian Government informing me to come home within six months for service or be struck off and forfeit all rights to German Citizenship. Sent reply: ‘I am a British Subject now and cannot serve two Masters. I am always going to live under the British Flag and willing to forgo all all rights to Germany.

Arrived in Australia in 1883 by ‘How & Smith’ new ‘S.S.Gabo’ on the Coast in Haward, Smith, 'Huddam' Parker & Tasmanian Company’s for some years.

I got married to an Australian Girl by British Parents and gave up the Sea, started on my own Carting , later mining, and now settled on the Land.

Now, Sir, I have been living under the British Flag from the Age of Fourteen, naturalized 35 years, always been proud to be a British Subject and enjoyed all the privilege and my vote in Australia. Always been true and Loyal to our own Flag ad always shall be. I never speak nor mix in German society, all my Friends and Relations are British.

My Father died in 1882. my Mother in 1884. I have no tie to that Country and never communicated since.

Sir, if I cannot be a British Subject I will have no nationality if the Prussian Government honour their word.

I wish the Government would see into my case and restore me to to my Friends as a Britisher, not put me back to the Prussian that my poor Father sent me away for 40 years ago, and he had to suffer for.

I have the honour to be

Yours respectfully
