Alas a member of our family had a real chance be in a museum.

Here is a e-mail written by my cousin Daryl Broderick-Bulkley. Rudolph Stuttmeister appears to be a recruiter for the German Colony in Chile. Stuttmeister appears be the name of the area later named Charlottenburg. Did the Stuttmeisters own and develop this land? There was a amusement park named Flora? Were the Jankes involved? With the revelation Victor Emanuel established a colony in Belmont California, one wonders if the Stuttmeisters were not experienced in establishing colonies for refugees. Did that have Huguenot roots? Berlin was a haven for them.

The other puzzler is, did the HERMAN stop in Philadelphia before going on
to Valparaiso, and pick up passengers? My ancestor arrived in the US
before 1844, as he was married on that date, so eight years later he is
traveling to Chili, and what was the attraction? And where was his wife?
More puzzles! Or did he travel back to Germany, and take this emmigrant
ship to Chili from Hamburg? I guess I cannot rule that out.
Has anyone done any extra reading about the Germans who went to Chili? I
noticed from the passenger list, broken down by occupations, there were
three doctors, l lawyer, and various professions represented, along with a
few farmers, carpenters, etc. which I found intriguing. Stuttmeister did
not travel as a physician, but as a `Commercial’. He was a doctor.
Anyone have any comments on this?

“German immigrants arrived in Chile following the failure of the
liberal revolutions of 1848 in Germany. They settled the rainy and,
until then, largely unimproved provinces south of the Biobío River.
This region had remained largely controlled until the mid-19th
century by the indigenous Araucanians. The German settlers
introduced small industries and farming and in the lake district
established resorts that remain popular with tourists. Small groups
of settlers from Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, and Yugoslavia
also came in the mid-19th century. Most of them settled in the same
area as the Germans.

One of the ships used for the German emigration to Chile in the mid-nineteenth was the brig “Hermann”. This boat made five trips to Chile transporting German settlers and their families to the port of Corral in southern Chile, and Valparaiso. He also made several trips from Hamburg to Australia transporting settlers and the United States of America. 

There is a Chilean project to build a replica and turn this into a museum of immigration in Valdivia, but now it seems that this project is stopped.

After Victor Emmanuel became King of Sardinia he appointed Cipriani to be his first consul in San Francisco.”

Cipriani’s home was brought around the Cape by my kindred, Carl Janke, whose daughter married William Stuttmeister. I believe my kindred were chosen to help found the Sardinian Colony that would support Victor Emmanuel’s kingdom. This is astonishing!  With the history of John Fremont and his wife, Jessie Benton, my kindred are the Acme of California History.

“German immigrants arrived in Chile following the failure of the
liberal revolutions of 1848 in Germany. They settled the rainy and,
until then, largely unimproved provinces south of the Biobío River.
This region had remained largely controlled until the mid-19th
century by the indigenous Araucanians. The German settlers
introduced small industries and farming and in the lake district
established resorts that remain popular with tourists. Small groups
of settlers from Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, and Yugoslavia
also came in the mid-19th century. Most of them settled in the same
area as the Germans.

Frederick Wilhelm I (1688 — 1740), Elector of Brandenburg (1713 — 1740), feeling the need to bring change to his private hunting grounds,[1] built many structures that are still visible today.[citation needed] As the King was expanding Unter den Linden, a roadway that connected the City Palace and the Tiergarten, he had a swathe of forest removed in order to connect his castle to the newly built Charlottenburg PalaceDer Große Stern, the central square of the Tiergarten, and Kurfürstenplatz, the electoral plaza, were added, with seven and eight boulevards respectively.[citation needed] This is seen as the beginning of a transformation in the Tiergarten, a movement from the king’s personal hunting territory to a forest park designed for the people.[citation needed]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiergarten_(park)

Dorotheenstadt is bordered in the west by the Großer Tiergarten, in the north by the River Spree, in the northeast by the Kupfergraben (part of the Spree canal system), in the east by Hinter dem Gießhaus and Oberwallstraße and in the south by the Behrenstraße.

The first German Jews to emigrate were mostly young men. They
entered thinly scattered networks which consisted of relatives and
neighbors from the same European communities. The second group came
after the failed German revolution (1848). They were somewhat older
than the first and more educated. These German Jews often went into
peddling and petty trade, endeavors calling for small outlays of
capital. From small starts, many went on to build substantial
businesses andy were absorbed into the American middle class. These
immigrants came to America in search of democracy. This is reflected
in their overall concern for Jewish communal conditions. Religious,
philanthropic and fraternal organizations were founded during this
period. Many German-Jewish immigrants were part of the Reform
Movement and the religious life of American Jews was colored by that
connection. Founded in Hamburg, Reform Judaism aimed at winning
civic equality and social acceptance in the modern world.

German colonization (1850-1910) Presentation Valdivia and Llanquihue
The two last decades of century XIX, were the period of greater
splendor of the seated German community in the regions of Valdivia
and Llanquihue. Although never they added more of 5% of the
population of those places, constituted a nucleus of industrial
development that gravitated on national scale. In Valdivia, one
constituted an industrial sector dedicated to the elaboration of
beer, tanneries, shipyards and sawmills; in the borders of the
Llanquihue lake and in the level ones of Osorno, the farming
activities were developed based on the supplying of insumos for the
valdiviano enclave; in addition, in Montt Port it prospered the
commerce with Hamburg, which formidably extended the demand for the
production of the colonos German. The first colonos arrived at a
region that, towards 1840, was separated of the rest of the country
by the territory mapuche and was slowst of Chile. The national
authorities had measures stimulus to the establishment of foreign
immigrants and entrusted to Bernardine Eunom Philippi the pick up of
colonos in Germany and the demarcation of the lands in which they
would settle down. In spite of the objections interposed by catholic
sectors, in 1846 Philippi it managed to seat to the first group of
colonos around the fluvial system of the Valdivia river and, with
the aid of his Rodulfo brother Loving, it explored the river basin
of the Llanquihue lake with the intention of qualifying new earth
for the interested ones. In October of 1850, Vicente Perez Rosales
replaced to Philippi like agent of colonization in Europe and, two
years later, he disembarked in Montt Port with tens of German
families who settled to borders of the Llanquihue lake.

This new big wave of immigrants had to transform the natural
landscape of the territory to dedicate itself to the agriculture,
whose production was complemented harmonically with the
manufacturing and commercial activities that their been compatriots
made in Valdivia. Towards 1870, the project of German colonization
in the south of Chile was everything a success. The region showed
the greater economic dynamism of the country and the new citizens
were an example of laboriosidad, honesty and enterprising spirit for
the rest of the Chileans. Nevertheless, with the coming of century
XX, a steep end of that prosperity took place. Between the main
causes of the decay, they appear the depreciation of the national
currency, the promulgation of the Alcohol Law of 1902 and the
adoption in 1907, of protectionistic measures in Germany against the
elaborated article import. Paradoxicalally, the defense of the
industry in Germany, buried to the German industry in Chile.

The minister in charge, Vicente Perez Rosales, consulted a friend
who was at that time Chilean Consul in Hamburg. His friend insisted
on inviting Germans who were already in an emigration mood
especially in areas such as Baden-Württemberg and the Black Forest,
as the landscape of southern Chile with its lakes, rivers and
forests would be an attractive and familiar enviroment similar to
the one to which they were accustomed.

Massive emigration is usually triggered by poor living conditions in
the homeland. Migrants therefore are usually mostly poor and
unskilled. This is also the case of the Spaniards of Galicia and the
Italians from Southern Italy who emigrated in large numbers to
Argentina, as well as the Irish, Poles, Mecklenburgian Germans who
did so to the United States. However, the migration of Germans to
Chile was less important in terms of quantity than of quality.
The first German colonisation was at the Llanquihue lake and in the
Frontera. Encouraged by these first successes in 1846 by Philippi,
thirty settlers from Hessen were recruited for Bella Vista.

A further 1,000 Germans followed in 1848, mostly inspired by the
events of the revolution to begin a new life overseas; besides
craftsmen, many university graduates were involved. Arriving in
1851, their numbers were supplemented by skilled workers (beer-
brewers, tanners, furniture makers) and included academics such as
pharmacists, professors and scientific investigators. In 1852
Germans founded Deutsche Player Maiten, Volcan and Puerto Octay, as
well as in 1853, Puerto Montt. Llanquihue, Frutillar and Puerto
Varas were settled with Germans in the same year. Between 1872-75,
Nordboehmer Quilanto, lot Bajos, El Carril, Linea Plantanosa and new
Braunau started. To the settlement of Germans in Valdivia Fritz
Kindermann and Karl Anwandter contributed much. In the Frontera
(area between the rivers Biobio and Tolten) were settled primarily
colonists from Brandenburg, Pomerania and Switzerland. Many Germans
moved also into the cities Valparaiso, Santiago, Temuco, Conception,
Ancud and Magellanes. They had to endure hard times during the first
years in the wilderness, but with determination they gradually
became prominent and a most respected segment of Chilean society.

Pablo Neruda, Nobel-prize winner and arguably Chile’s greatest poet,
wrote of frontier life in Chile during the 19-teens:

No one had any money, and yet printing presses, hotels,
slaughterhouses burgeoned … In time, everything crumbled and
everyone was left as poor as before. Only the Germans kept a
stubborn hold on their assets, and that singled them out in the
hinterlands. (Memoirs, p. 13)
Historical Literature

The history of German migration to Chile is well-documented, and
compiled especially in the lifelong studies of the authority in the
field: Mrs. Ingeborg Schmalz. Mrs. Schmalz is today (1999) in her
80’s and not familiar with computers. Much of her work and also
other bibliographic material is today being archived by the
Biblioteca y Archivo Histórico de la Inmigración Alemaná which in
turn is maintained by the Deutsch-Chilenischer Bund.

Germans to Chili, 1851, 52?

sealegs@olympus.net (Daryl Bulkley) on 02/11/2000

On microfische #1609199, Family History Center, Item 9 –
It states that the `HERMAN’ left HAMBURG Sept. 3, 1851, arrived December 4,
1851 in the port of Valdivia, page 56. Then it says Ship `HERMAN’ under
the command of Captain O.A. Kleingarn, left HAMBVRG, December, 1852 and
made for Valdivia and Valparaio, arriving July 31, 1852.

There must be a mistake in dates. The first is the passenger list, and
the other bit was on another page giving more detailed information, but it
is rather confusing. What year did my ancestor arrive in Chili? I found my
ancestor, Friedrich Wilhelm Stuttmeister on the list, and a much needed
clue. It stated he was from Philadelphia. I have been looking at New York
port of entry, so now I will look for arrivals from Germany to Phiadelphia.

The other puzzler is, did the HERMAN stop in Philadelphia before going on
to Valparaiso, and pick up passengers? My ancestor arrived in the US
before 1844, as he was married on that date, so eight years later he is
traveling to Chili, and what was the attraction? And where was his wife?
More puzzles! Or did he travel back to Germany, and take this emmigrant
ship to Chili from Hamburg? I guess I cannot rule that out.
Has anyone done any extra reading about the Germans who went to Chili? I
noticed from the passenger list, broken down by occupations, there were
three doctors, l lawyer, and various professions represented, along with a
few farmers, carpenters, etc. which I found intriguing. Stuttmeister did
not travel as a physician, but as a `Commercial’. He was a doctor.

French Chilean (FrenchFranco-ChilienSpanishfranco-chileno) is a Chilean citizen of full or partial Frenchancestry. Between 1840 and 1940, 20,000 to 25,000 French people immigrated to Chile.[1] The country received the fourth largest number of French immigrants to South America after Argentina (239,000), Brazil (40,000) and Uruguay(more than 25,000).[citation needed]

 

The French came to Chile in the 18th century, arriving at Concepción as merchants, and in the mid-19th century to cultivate vines in the haciendas of the Central Valley, the homebase of world-famous Chilean wine. The Araucanía Region also has an important number of people of French ancestry, as the area hosted settlers arrived by the second half of the 19th century as farmers and shopkeepers. With akin Latin culture, the French immigrants quickly assimilated into mainstream Chilean society.

From 1840 to 1940, around 25,000 Frenchmen immigrated to Chile. 80% of them were coming from Southwestern France, especially from Basses-Pyrénées (Basque country and Béarn), GirondeCharente-Inférieure and Charente and regions situated between Gers and Dordogne.[2]

 

A large number of people of European heritage in South Africa are descended from Huguenots. Most of these originally settled in the Cape Colony, but were absorbed into the Afrikaner and Afrikaans population, because they had religious similarities to the Dutch colonists.
