  • Notes 


    • Hans Heinrich was born about 1838 in the duchy of Schleswig Holstein, Denmark, to Jochim Eggert Pohlmann and Elsabe Catherine Mohr. Hans married Elisabeth Walter in Schleswig Holstein, part of which is now in Germany.

      On 18 Jul 1870, the couple embarked at Hamburg, Germany on the ship Humboldt, with their children Christina Helena and Marie Elisabeth plus Hans’ brother Johann Heinrich, all with "free passage", bound for Moreton Bay, Queensland. Also on the Humboldt, as an "assisted" passenger was Hans’ uncle Hans Heinrich. On their arrival they all settled in Maryborough, Queensland, with Hans working as a labourer.

      On 20 Feb 1873, a son Heinrich Louis was born to Hans and Elisabeth. The child’s life was short, he died 22 Oct 1873 in Maryborough.

      On 5 May 1873, Elisabeth died of typhoid fever. Three months later, on 16 Aug 1873, Hans married Johanna Frederic(k)a Rach, in Maryborough. The marriage produced eight children.

      Hans Heinrich Pohlmann died 18 Jul 1918 at his residence in Cheapside Street, Maryborough and was interred the following day in Maryborough Cemetery (Plot B941). His obituary was printed in the Maryborough Chronicle on 19 Jul 1918. It reads:

      A very old and well known resident of the city in the person of Mr. Hans Heinrich Pohlmann passed away early on Thursday morning in his 81st year. The deceased had been ailing since Monday last. He was born in Denmark and came out to Queensland on the ship Humboldt in the year 1870, landing at Brisbane. He immediately came to Maryborough where he has resided ever since. He leaves a wife and family of seven married daughters to mourn his loss, Viz: Mesdames J. Campbell of Sydney, D. Reid and J. Stephens of Innisfail, A. Judaschefski, G. Pascoe, W. Boswell [sic. Bolwell] and V. Johnstone of Maryborough. His only son pre-deceased him about five years ago. There were two brothers, Jochim and John Henry Pohlmann, both of Yengarie and 18 grandchildren.
      The funeral will leave his residence Cheapside Street, this afternoon at 2.30 o’clock.

      A sister, Virginia, went to the U.S.A. However, no further information is available on her movements.
