12.  References and Notes

 

 

1.  Johann Gottlieb Kuchel  (1846-1923)

1.1  Marriage  -  married in 1871 to a Liebelt

 

​"Gottfried's eldest child born in Australia was Johann Gottlieb, who was born in 1847.  He married Johanne Louise Liebelt and lived on part of the Liebelt property at Friedrichstadt.  Gottlieb was a carpenter.  He made rakes and other implements, and also hurdles for the Oakbank races.  Most of his children were on the land or interested in gardening.  Gustav farmed near Hahndorf and at Flatly; Fred's main hobby was grafting and budding roses; Wilhelm was engaged in farming the original property at Friedrichstadt; and Gottlieb's son Gottlieb was also a farmer.

Gottlieb's daughter, Hulda, married Otto Mueller, who was a farmer at Paechtown, near Hahndorf.  They lived in one of the original tiber framed and brick houses in the area.  (Paechtown). Another daughter, Louise, married Ernest Nelson, who armed and worked at Murray Bridge.  She is the only surviving child of Gottlieb and Louise, and still lives at Murray Bridge.  Her sons have built up a well-known carrying business in that town. Gottlieb's daughter Emma married Albert Ey.  They lived at Lobethal and Summertown.  His daughter Bertha married William Collins and lived at Hahndorf.  

Gottlieb's daughter Elizabeth was the first person to be buried in the new Hahndorf cemetery on 11 April 1883.  Another child, Martha Mathilda, died at the age of 2. The second son of Johann Gottfried was named Johann Gottfried, after his father.  He died in 1850 at the age of 2.  "The third son Johann Friedrich) was known as Hanfried.  He was almost 50 when he married Emma Kubern. (As a girl of 14 years, she travelled from Germany to join her two sisters in Australia.) They lived at Sawmill Gully, near Hahndorf, ad had five children.  Hanfried died in 1909 when the youngest child was only a few years old.  He was buried next to his mother in the Hahndorf Cemetery.  Hanfried's eldest daughter, Caroline Dorothy, died at the age of 20.  His two surviving children (Alma Zeunert and Clara Woolley) both reside in Murray Bridge.  Alma's son, Ray, is a welfare officer for Aborigines with the Lutheran Church in Brisbane.  (Kuchel page 7).

 The only daughter of Gottfried born in Australia (Elizabeth) married Edmund Diederich.  She died on 27 August, 1932, at the age of 78 years.  Her husband had emigrated from Hamburg, where he had a photographic studio.  In Australia he built a travelling studio and took many photographs at various places.  He kept a pictorial record of the Hahndorf of yesteryear.  He attended most of the weddings, anniversaries, family gatherings, and funerals, taking photographs which are fascinating to those interested in our early history.  Their son, Wilhelm, lived at Riverton and is now in Adelaide.  Their daughter, Ida, married Samuel Scharenberg.  She still lives in the cottage occupied by her parents near Hahndorf.  For the christening at Lobethal she was taken by her father and mother from Hahndorf in a dray pulled by a team of bullocks.  These bullocks were bred from a heifer given to Johanne Dorothea (Johanne Gottfried's wife) by her sister, Mrs Maria Elizabeth Liebelt (nee Kuchel).  Mrs Liebelt (born on 11 January 1798, died on 2nd August, 1879) was an early immigrant. (Kuchel page 6 and 7)

"The Cedars: Additional information.

A little bit of recent “Royal” frippery at The Cedars!

(Allan Campbell - Extract from Hahndorf Village Voice #29, March 2012)

Maybe of interest to readers of the Village Voice is that Hahndorf had a royal visit.  The Governor and his wife brought Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, to The Cedars (apparently at his request) to spend an hour looking through the Heysen studios and residence.  There are , of course, quite a number of Heysen originals in the Royal Collection at Buckingham Palace in London, as many of the visiting royals were presented with a painting by Sir Hans as a memento of their visit to Australia.  The Duke was most interested to know that a study in pastel of Old Man Collins of English Street was given as a gift to his grandmother, Queen Mary, by Dame Nellie Melba ..... he was inspecting a small exhibition of Heysen's drawings in the main studio of William Collins, who was a favoured subject of Hans Heysen as they lived opposite one another in English Street for the four years that the Heysen Family resided in the village itself.  The artist paid Collins the princely sum of one shilling to model for him! After leaving The Cedars, the vice regal party took their royal visitor up to The Lane for a wine tasting!"

This photo below of Fred Kuchel and his friend Oscar Martin is interesting because of the photo background as well as what they are doing.

 

 

'Fred Kuchel,

Oscar Martin'.

John Foumakis, collector, says: Fred Kuchel "on the left is drinking Hochheimer also known as Hock wine. I suspect the bottle is a light amber colour as most Hocks are.  By comparison the Champagne bottle on the right held by Oscar is green".
