    70 Years Without A Break

    Gordon Jessen
    September 28, 2004

    The 2004 peanut harvest marked two special milestones for East Wooroolin grower Gordon Jessen, (right), it was his "best ever" season and marked the 70th year he has been delivering peanuts to PCA.

    That's right ... 70 years without missing one season!

    Gordon is 84 years young and entered the peanut business after leaving school at the tender age of 14. His father Peter, a pioneer peanut grower in the Wooroolin area, offered to pay him "25 bob" a week (25 shillings or $2.50) to work on the farm or give him 5 acres (2ha) of peanuts. Gordon chose the peanuts and earned 2 1/2d a pound for his first crop.

    Of course in those days Gordon was delivering to the Peanut Marketing Board, the forerunner of today's PCA. But one thing hasn't changed ... his loyalty to Virginia-style peanuts.

    Jessen-built thresher
    Back in 1934 he was growing VBs, then for at least 15 years it was "Selection 5", another Virginia variety. Now he grows VB97s exclusively and this year delivered 46 tonnes off 16ha.

    Gordon has about 160ha at East Wooroolin and Corndale and runs cattle as well as growing peanuts, sorghum, corn and wheat. But peanuts are his favourite - "the best moneyspinner of them all!"

    In his heyday he had about 60ha planted with peanuts and the crop provided Gordon and his wife Vera with a good livelihood over the years.

    Gordon bought out his father and he and Vera, (pictured driving the tractor), raised four boys including Melville - better known as "Joe" - who now half-shares the property and looks after the cattle side of the business, and one daughter.

    The family boasts of a number of peanut industry "firsts" ... father Peter built a peanut thresher from the ground up ignoring the converted wheat threshers then doing the rounds of the district.

    Peter was also one of the original instigators of the Peanut Marketing Board and Gordon can remember his father delivering peanuts to the Board's first shed, on Billy Muir's property at Crawford.

    In 1937, the family put in the first contours in East Wooroolin.
    Grandfather A.F. "Fred" Jessen stands on top of the thresher with young Gordon. Father Peter is standing next to the machine. Peter built this thresher from the ground up at a time when other threshers were being converted from wheat threshers
    lifting stooks onto tabletop truck
    The Jessen family carts peanut stooks to their thresher. Gordon is standing next to the cart and his wife Vera is driving the tractor. Two men lifted each stook on a long stick.

    "Pop set up a spirit level on a drum and then put it on a little tilt. I walked around and made the mark where we would make the contour. That contour is still around," Gordon said.

    Vera passed away nine years ago leaving Gordon on his own with his favourite dog. When his dog died last year Gordon swore he was too old to get another but then "Mate" turned up (with a bit help from Joe) ... and they can't be separated.

    Gordon's other great love - apart from Virginia peanuts, his family and his dog - is fishing. For many years he regularly camped at Sandy Cape on Fraser Island, netting fish from the beach. He had a shack, complete with refrigerator, and it was the perfect life until the State Government changed and declared the shacks illegal.

    "I defied the ALP for a couple of years but then one day they came and pulled the whole lot down and carted it away," he said. Gordon promptly gave up his fishing trips.

    Gordon Jessen was also one of the biggest dozing contractors in the region, operating four big Allis Chalmers tractors, pushing scrub and pulling timber for farmers and the State Forestry.

    2003-2004 was Gordon's best-ever season.

    1952 Picker Thresher"We had never planted that late before, well into December. I planted VB97 Enhanced No 1s as I could not get the VB97 2s. It was one of the worst plants I've had (big seed) but then we ended up with one of the best seasons!"

    His secrets of success?

    Cultivating the ground, keeping the crop clean and a rum every night before tea!

    ABOVE RIGHT: This pickup thresher, pictured on 'Bellgrove' at Gordonbrook, was built in 1952 by Peter Jessen (driving) and Gordon (standing). Gordon says it was the first pickup peanut thresher built in Australia.

    Birth Date: Apr-May-Jun 1873
    Birth Place: Cobden, New Zealand
    Folio Number: 677
    (New Zealand Birth Index, 1840-1950)

    Cobden is a suburb to the north of Greymouth on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. The Grey separates Cobden from the rest of Greymouth. To the north is the Rapahoe Range, also called the Twelve Apostle's Range. State Highway 6 skirts the south-eastern edge of Cobden.
    The Greymouth area has a colourful history of gold and coal mining, timber and fishing
    When the mining industry started to decline, forestry became a new staple industry. Fishing has long been important to the town
    The gold mining days are over. But dairy farming is still a valuable staple of the local economy

    • Golden Wedding: 14 Jun 1934, Queensland Times, Ipswich, Qld.; GOLDEN WEDDING. Mr. and Mrs. F. Klee, Lowood. LOWOOD, June 12. On May 26 Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Klee celebrated their golden wedding at their home, Lowood. Only members of the family and a few intimate friends were present. Miss Helene Klee, their daughter, of Auckland, New Zealand, received the guests. Divine service, conducted by Rev. Ludwig Doehler opened the celebrations. Pastor Doehler took for his text, Psalm 34, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." Mr. Klee has had an adventurous life. He left the country of his birth (Germany) as a young man, and for three years was in London. Then he came to Queensland as a ship's carpenter. Here he took up work in his trade of cabinet-maker, and many fine pieces of hand-made furniture left his workshop. At Laidley the family had to be rescued from the flood waters, and they lost all they had. When intensive night work affected his eyes, Mr. Klee bought a farm up in the hills from Lowood, overlooking the town, Brisbane and Lockyer Valleys. Mr. and Mrs. Klee (who was Miss Kruger) have been residents here since 1898. Mr. Klee says that when he left his mother's home her words to him were: "Be honest. he industrious, and fear your God." He thought he could claim that he had followed that advice. THE BREAKFAST. The wedding breakfast was served on tables prettily decorated, and a handsome two-tier wedding cake, made by Mrs. Doig, Ipswich, and iced by Miss Jessen (grandddauter) graced the table. The usual toasts were honoured. There are three sons in the family:-Messrs. Henry (Wooroolin); Fred (Gympie), and Rudolph (Lowood): and six daughters: Mesdames F. Wieland (Fernvale), A. Doig (Ipswich), P. Jessen (Wooroolin), R. H. Alback (Ipswich), J. Graham (Ipswich), and Miss Helene Klee, of Auckland, who is visiting her parents for the occasion. There are 28 grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. It is unique that during the 50 years not a single death has occured in the family.

The death took place yesterday in the Ipswich General Hospital, of Mr Joseph Frederick Klee, Main-street, Lowood. The late Mr.Klee was a n well known identity of the district, and since the death of his wife last June his health has been greatly impaired,. He was born a little over 80 years age at Mannheim, Germany. He left Germany as a young man, and spent three years in London, then came to Queensland as a ship's carpenter. Upon reaching Queensland he started business as a cabinetmaker, and some beautiful furniture left his workshop. He married Miss Kruger, who also was born in Germany. The family made their home at Laidley, and in the great flood of 1893, they were rescued from drowning. There they lost everything they owned. His eyesight became affected, and he gave up his cabinet work, and in 1898 purchased a farm up on the hills between Glamorgan Vale and Lowood, making Lowood his home town. Here the family set out to regain some of the losses they had in the flood, this time out of the path of the flood waters. When the Lutheran Church was built at Lowood in 1910 the late Mr. Klee designed the building. Pastor Doehler, on that occasion, paid tributes to his work in connection with the church. The Klee family attended the Lowood School. Later Mr. Klee lived in Lowood, his son Rudolph remaining on the old home. On May 24, 1934, the late Mr. and Mrs. Klee celebrated their golden wedding. The funeral, which was well attended, left Main-street this afternoon for the Lowood Lutheran Beth-El Cemetery. Pastor L. Doehler conducted services at the house and the graveside.

She was intended for the Havre-New Orleans trade; her name was meant to appeal to German immigrants. She sailed in the Havre-New Orleans trade until at least 1861. The U.S. Civil War and the danger of Confederate commerce raiders forced many sailing lines to curtail or cease operations and to sell unneeded vessels.

    • Interests: 26 Aug 1890, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland; HAM AND BACON CURING. Mr. Watson and bis assistant were at Goorah on Friday and Saturday last. On his arrival at Mr. Jessen's he was shown round, and expressed himself higly pleased with all the arrangements, and it was easily seen that pigs were a great item in the district, and though not so perfect as it might be, the pigs are turned into bacon in a scientific way. The preparations being required operations were started at about 9 o'clock. The first two pigs were knocked down, bled, then carried 50 yards to the water, cleaned, disemboweled, cut down, and hanging in their places in exactly 25 minutes, the assistant the whole time saying how it was done, and saying, "See" which was not in any way easy. When two or three more had been done the pupils started, some of them shaping very well, Mr. Watson the whole time explaining why and why not things should be done, which was listened to with great interest, the assistant showing how the intestines were cleaned and run without the trouble of turning them. During the day 15 pigs were finished. In the evening Mr. Watson gave a short lecture and answered many questions. Mr. Watson and his assistant were sincerely thanked for their courtesy during the day. On Saturday morning the curing commenced, the assistant again showing all he knew. Great fun and amusement was caused by the desperate, though vain, efforts of some of the pupils to extract the shoulder blade as the assistant did. Some of the pupils, however, succeeded very well, in fact, some of them seemed to go to work with all confidence, and succeeded in getting a word of praise from both of the experts. The different cuts of the trade were shown, how a ham should be cut; also a side for rolling, and everything was demonstrated to the full satisfaction of the onlookers. After the cutting up and paring was done, it was salted and then placed in a brine that would float an egg or a potato. The heads and feet were then all salted and neatly packed, and the 15 pigs were finished, salted, and placed in pickle by 10 o'clock. There were a lot of persons present on both days-60 or 70-amongst whom were Messrs. W. C. Wilson, P. Cornwell, P. Biddles, P. Joyce, J. Orphant, G. Stuckey, J. Wade, and many others. Great thanks are due to Mr. and Mrs. Jessen, also the Misses Jessen, for the way they entertained the visitors from all parts on both days. Mr. Watson left for Yengarie, and returns on Monday to turn the bacon, of which I will advise you further, as many of the old curers are rather dubious as to the results of the process.

    • Personal: 10 Jan 1893, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland; DEBORAH. January 6. [From our own correspondent] On the 3rd of January we had a heavy thunderstorm with rain and heavy hailstones. The ground was almost covered with hailstones, which did a great deal of damage to all the young corn. It was stripped as if It had been done with forks. Not a single leaf of tobacco is left sound. It is all cut into holes and rags. The last couple of days the weather has been fine. The atmosphere still keeps hot, and heavy cloud, hanging about. The hailstorm did not do much damage to the early crops as it is almost all ready to pull, which the farmers ought to be thankful for. It is time for the farmers, to prepare land for wheat and potatoes, and also for the farmers to lookout for some good seed wheat. I think that it would be a wise thing for the farmers to send to Victoria for seed. I intend to send for Talavera and Purple Staw.

    • Personal: 8 Oct 1896, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland ; Sir,-With your kind permission I should like to further reply to your own correspondent's letter from Deborah on 22nd September with reference to the part of his letter dealing with dairying matters. There are only Mr. Wade and Mr. Jessen in this neighbourhood with anything like 100 to 120 milkers, and the former has sometimes made £15 a week for dairy produce, as well as mobs of fats he has sold from time to time to the butchers. Mr. Jessen sells "abundance" of butter, as "your own" terms it, regularly at top prices, so that does not correspond with "your own's" statement that they barely make enough for their own use. I suppose I must be one of the industrious men who looks after his cows, sincc I get 88 gallons per day from 20 cows. Let your correspondent beat that if he can.

    • Obituary: 21 Jan 1915, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland; OBITUARY It is with sincere regret that we have to record the death of yet another very old and highly esteemed pioneer of the district in the person of Mr Andrew Peter Jessen, who passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon, at the residence of his son-in-law Mr P. C. Andersen, Ferry Street. The deceased, who was just approaching the alloted span, having been born in August 1845, was a native of Tinningstedt, Schleswig and came out to Australia by the sailing boat "Beausite" in 1866. He took up his abode at Tiaro, where for some years he was engaged in dairying and agricultural pursuits. He subsequently removed to Goorah, via Gundiah, where he also wrung a livelihood from the land. He was a typical member of the old pioneering school and all his energies was directed to the development of the district in which he lived. He was amongst the first associated with the earliest development of the township of Wooroolin, during the construction of the Kingaroy line where he had erected several shops including a butcher's, baker's, grocer's and of fruit shops, in addition to a couple of dwelling houses. His first wife, with whom he reared a family of twelve, predeceased him fifteen years ago. He remarried a second time and had issue, two children. His first family consisted of Mr Andrew Jessen and Mrs P. Bundesen (Coolabunia), Mrs P. C. Andersen (Maryborough, late of the Great Western Hotel), Mrs Joe Wade, "Willowdale" (Gundiah), Mrs Geo. Lochran (Gympie), Mrs T. O'Leary, Miss Ingelina Jessen and Messrs Ludwig, Christian, Johann and Hans Peter (all of Wooroolin) and Niels Sophus (Goorah). His widow and remaining two children, Alice Maria and William George reside at Wooroolin. The deceased was a good father and a fond husband and much sympathy will be extended to his sorrowing family. His disposition was kindly and his friends many, and by his death a highly respected pioneer is removed from our midst. The body is being conveyed this morning to Gundiah by rail for interment at his old homestead, Goorah, where the funeral will leave at 3.30pm.

    Report of the 1890 flood
    "Mr. Andrew Jessen succeeded in saving seventy bags of maize".

    THE DEVASTATION AT TIARO.
    TIARO, February 1.
    The distance from Gympie to Tiaro by rail is about thirty nine miles. The train leaves Gympie at 7.35 a.m. and reaches Tiaro at 10 o'clock. The Line runs through pastoral country for the greater part of the distance, this, however, alternating with patches of Scrub at intervals during the first half. The cattle country comprises both classes in quality, first and second. There is a very small area of the first class, however. The greater part of the land is even lower than second-class pastoral. The alternating scrub patches are somewhat sour too, if one may judge from the indifferent character of the indigenous growth. Down the line from Gympie the indication of a recent or indeed of any flood are few, only when the train draws near to Tiaro are the recently inundated river flat opened up to the traveller.

    The district of Tiaro, which is the head centre of the agricultural industry of the Mary comprises some thirty-flve miles of the valley of the Mary, largely including the low lying flats on the banks of the river, with a greatest breadth of from one to three miles. This strip of soil possesses wonderful fertility. Nearly three decades have passed since man first began to make large drafts on the vitality of this land, and yet its powers of reproduction continue as unimpaired as ever. The reputed average yield of the Mary farms is about thirty-five bushels of maize to the acre. In good seasons this rises to sixty, seventy, and even eighty bushels! The past season has been phenomenal, and the settlers expected fully seventy bushels to the acre. They had looked forward to the prolific yeild of this good season for the redemption of their losses during the past three, the years of alternate drought and sudden flood. The energy of the district has been centred on the development of this crop; with the prospect of an early liquidation, the store bills assumed alarming dimension, and the farmers employed a little extra labour on the land.

    This was the condition of affairs in the valley of the Mary at the commencement of the late disastrous flood. The maize was nearly ripe, and a lot of potatoes quite ready for market still, remained in the ground. On the 24th and 25th January the flood came and swept nearly the whole of the crops away. The devastation has been almost absolute, a few bushels of maize here, and there out of an estimated outturn of 25,000 bushels only having beon saved. There was no back water silently working its way up the ridges, no still lakes in the low-lying flats nothing but a roaring, foaming torrent more than two miles wide pursuing its mad career unchecked towards the ocean.

    At this stage in her seaward course the Mary in flood time has gathered together a tremendous volume of water. starting from her source in the remotest recesses of the Blackall Banges, and fed by innumerable tributaries both large and small, she sweeps down to Gympie, a distance of over fifty miles. By the time Tiaro is reached another fifty miles of country has been traversed, and the flood demon travels on the wings of the wind in his career of destruction. Between here and Gympie the mighty torrent has gathered the waters of Wide Bay Greek, draining the Kilkivan and Widgee Ranges and Manna Creek, which is fed by the Dividing Range between the Burnett and the Mary. The watershed from the fall of the Burnett Bange towards the eastward is very steep, and the various tributaries deep and narrow. At the point where they join the Mary, the Wide Bay and Manna Creeks are, in flood time, formidable rivers themselves.

    At Tiaro the residents of twenty years state that the recent flood rose 6ft. higher than the flood of any past year within their recollection. The days on which the late flood was at its highest were Friday and Saturday. The Gympie flood, it will be remembered, rose on the preceding Thursday morning. At Tiaro, as near as I can judge by the marks on the banks, the river must have risen fully 70ft.! All along the banks large areas of land were swallowed by the torrent. Gaps of two, three, and four acres have, at intervals, totally disappeared. While the waters were subsiding these abnormal landslips were constantly taking place, accompanied by a noise like the roar of artillery. These slips are even in a minor degree, taking place while I write this letter.

    The Tiaro district produces maize, potatoes, oats, lucerne, setaria, sugar, and large quantities of fruit and vegetables. The supplies of both Gympie and Maryborough are drawn from this source. Maize is the staple product of the district, sugar being regarded as only a subsidiary growth. The farmers here profess a hearty contempt for sugar, regarded in the light of a profitable product. They state that many of the farmers hereabouts went broke in the olden days at sugar-growing. According to their own showing, it seems that several crushing mills were erected and the farmers were induced to plant a supply of cane to keep them going. Then, as the supply of cane went up, the price of it went down, and finally a number of the farmers "went under" completely. This is very many years ago; but to this day there are farmers who relate the bitterness of their early experiences in the then newly initiated sugar industry. Sugar, however, is still a minor product of the district, but, with one solitary exception, all the mills send their juice down the river by punt to bo manufactured at Yengarie,

    As regards the loses in the Tiaro district as a consequent upon the flood, I have chatted with several of the leading residents to-day. Mr. Jonathan Job, Storekeeper, who has a fine large place of business and a splendid stock, has lived at Tiaro since about 1870. He states that in past good seasons 12,000 bushels of maize have passed through his hands en route to market. Then he was only one of several agent. The total yield in such a year as that would certainly have amounted to 20,000 bushels. Since then more land has been planted, and the yield for the past season, the crop just destroyed by flood, was expected to be an extraordinary one. " Yes," he replied in answer to my question, " 25,000 bushels would be rather under than over the mark."

    One of the hotelkeepers, Mr. Nathan Frall also a twenty years' resident confirmed this view, as did also Senior - constable Pickering, a resident of the district during thirteen years. Certainly this loss has been enormous, more than two-thirds of the entire crop having entirely disappeared. Reckoning it on the basis of two-thirds?at 3s. 6d. a bushel, a moderately estimated value, we have at once a loss of about £3000 for one product alone, without counting the wholesale destruction of house property, and loss of clothing and implements. And the living expenses of the next next season, while the new crop is still growing, also must be added to the loss. From what I have seen and heard I think the total loss cannot be much under £8000 or £9000, not a wry large sum, perhaps, until the reader rsalises that it represents the total possessions, tbe result of yeas of industery and thrift, of at least two thirds of the settlers in these parts.

    Beginning with the details of the losses, Mr. W. C. Wilson, of Binbirrun, a sugar plantation fifteen miles from Tiaro, has lost about £1500, damage to crops of sugar and maize and injury sustained by the sugar mill. Johan Johnson, a farmer, has not only lost all his crops, but was also washed out of his house and had to seek refuge on a ridge to the rear. Most of this man's maize had been harvested and was stored in the barn prior to the flood. This, however, did not save it, crops, barn, and everything were swept away.

    As I said in my last letter, the whole of the settlers on the low lands around Diokabram, including Messrs. Tullooh, Jenkins, Lipsett, and others, have lost heavily; this land has always produced wonderful crops of maize.

    At Miva Crossing Hotel (Mr. J. Orphant's), fifteen miles from Tiaro, the flood waters entered the house, notwithstanding the fact that it stood on an unusually high bank. Very considerable damage was also effected here among the crops. Manna Creek empties into the river near here, and during the flood reached a far greater height than has ever been previously recorded. All the farms between Miva and Home Park, about twenty in number, had their crops washed away. Messrs. Biddell. Bros., of Brieyriam plantation, also lost a large qnantiy of fruit and produce.

    Coming nearer to the township of Tiaro, Mr. Cornwall, of Redbank, lost a large quantity of maize, potatoes, and lucerne. Mr. Stevens, of Haseldean, lost 6 acres of maize, and the water stood in his house to a depth of 2ft. Mr. Lawrence's 30 acres of orops arc all gone; these included maize, potatoes, and lucerne, and the land was completely covered with water. Mr. Nelleman, of Tiaro, is also a heavy loser.

    At the town ship of Tiaro the flood presented a scene of awful grandeur, from four to five miles of water being in sight; the river is stated to have been running at a speed of twenty miles, an hour.

    Mr. M. P. Neilsen, of Gootchie Creek, six miles distant from Tiaro, occupies a very low farm. He is thus a loser to some extent by even the slightest fresh and has been flooded no fewer than three times during the past twelve months. By the late flood this unfortunate man has lost 92 acres of maize. At Tiaro during the worst two days of the flood, Messrs. George Waldock, Robert and John Stevens, Robert Ewbank, Forbes, Douglas, G. Brims, and Senior-constable Pickering were indefatigable in their efforts to save life and property, and traversed, in boats the worst portion of the flooded country.

    Continuing the catalogue of disasters, Mr. Aaron Skinner, of Tiaro, has lost half his crops. Mr. Andrew Jessen succeeded in saving seventy bags of maize. Mr. Knudsen, of Good Hope, lost 40 aores of cultivation, maize, potatoes, and lucerne. Mr. H. Maslen saved 400 bushels out of 40 acres of splendid maize. Mr. N. Sorensen lost the whole of his crops, valued at £600. The whole of Mr. James Philpott's cultivation, between 20 and 30 acres, has also been destroyed. Mr. George Brun's, being situated on elevated land, has escaped with comparatively slight injury. Lower down the river Mr. S. G. Richards lost 15 acres of maize. This was a very heavy crop, many of the stalks had grown to a length of 15ft. Mr. Gysing saved 100 bushels out of 80 acres of maize. Mrs. Benstead saved 2 acres out of 20, the remainder being swept away.

    Mrs. James Rankin saved only about twenty bushells from a standing crop of 23 acres. Mr. Carruthers lost the whole of his crop as well as a large portion previously harvested, and would have lost his house by a large tree being swept against it had the latter not been fortunately arrested by some vines and fruit trees immediately above the house. Mr. Hall, of Aurora Sugar Plantation, has lost a large quantity of cane, the greater portion of his land being completely inundated.

    The Pioneer's Rest provisional schoolhouse, containing the library of the Pioneer School of Arts, was carried bodily down the river and deposited upside down in a grass paddock a quarter of a mile away from its original site. The books, valued at £50, were totally destroyed, as was also tho school furniture and fittings.

    Mr. A. Moffatt, of Hope farm, lost 1000 bushels of maize. Mr. Shellback lost 700 bushels, besides potatoes, lucerne, &c. Mr. J. Neilscn lout 800 bushels of maize. Mr. Henry Friss, of Myrtle Creek, 5 acres of maize and a lot of fencing. Mr. G. Phillpot, of Myrtle Grove, a large quantity of produce and 30 chains of new fencing. Mr. Sinclair, of Enniskillen, finds that his entire crop has gone; while his neighbour, Mr. Hansen, has lost half of his.

    In Wilson's Pocket, four miles from the township, the land lies very low, but is exceedingly rich. It has been occupied by several families, mostly Danes. In this locality the flood waters have ruined everything. Mr. Madson hns lost house, furniture, personal efects, in fact everything except the clothes he was wearing when the flood down; Among his losses there was also an apiary of fifty hives of bees. His furniture had been placed in a punt for safety, but during that memorable Friday night this frail bark either capsized or sank. This settler's loss alone would hardly be covered by £400.

    Charles Davy, another farmer, remained in his house with two other men until the last moment; having a punt on which he depended for safety. During the night the punt broke away, however, and these three men ran very great danger of being drowned. They were finally rescued by Mr. N. J. Torpey, an old naval pensioner, whose right arm still retains a remnant of its former vigour. Davy lost everything he possessed his property, it could hardly be replaced with £200.

    Drawing nearer to the township again, Mr. J. Hammill has lost some 5000 bushels of maize, 21 tons of hay, and 12 or 14 tons of potatoes. These losses will serve as an example of the absolute desolation which prevails in the district.

    Notes for the Den Kgl. Fødselsstiftelse
    Den Kgl. Fødselsstiftelse (Royal Birth Institution) was founded in 1750 and was a place where single woman could give birth anonymously in order to prevent the mothers from killing their babies. That is why the children have numbers and sometimes no parents 'Den Kgl. Fødselsstiftelse'
    Meaning of Den Kgl. Fødsesstiftelse: Den Kgl. = The Kgl. abbreviation for Kongelige = Royal Fødselsstiftelse is made up of two words - fødsels = birth ---- stiftelse = foundation (as in a charitable foundation) Fødselsstiftelsen (the Fødselsstiftelse) was an institution where unmarried women could have a child without revealing her own - or the child's father's name. It was not only for women to give birth, but also a place where could be left if unwanted and one could in the period 1771-1774 could leave a foundling in a box - and ring a bell -- and the institution could take care of - "adopt" - the child.
    The purpose of the institution were to unmarried mothers provide a safe haven and prevent the frequent infanticide. In 1910 moved it to the National Hospital. In 1750 Birth Foundation was created, and here women could birth anonymously and get free medical care. The aim was to prevent the killing of newborn babies and their mothers were promised anonymity to "forever". This rule was changed in 2007. The archive contains data on both the operation of the foundation and the women and children, who were assisted by the foundation. [Arkivet findes på Rigsarkivet. The archive is available on the Public Record Office Confir]

    Birth Foundation was established in 1750 and was responsible for three functions:

    Birth Institution, which provided maternity care.
    Care Institution that housed nursing wards where children got the first care.
    Opfostringsanstalten from which the children were exposed to foster parents or their own mothers on a weekly support.

    Since the foundation was established in 1750, it was also responsible for raising the children, who were left to the Foundation's assistance - known as foundlings. This task was taken over by the Royal Opfostringsstiftelse, established as an independent institution in 1770.

    From 1804 gathered foundations under the same management under the name Birth and Care Foundation. In 1910, the foundation placed under the hospital and became the maternity ward.

    • Interests: 16 Jul 1890, The Brisbane Courier, Queensland; FLOOD The effects of the late flood on the land along the river bank, are continually cropping up (says the Maryborough Chronicle) in the way of landslips, whereby the owner of the land is often deprived of a considerable portion of his holding. The last of these slips last week, when Mr Jones, of Yengerie, lost a well - laid - out vegetable garden situated on Myrtle Creek, the land going bodily into the creek. another effect of the flood was to bury farm implements to a great depth. Mr P.P. Bundesen of Gootchie recovered one of his scarifiers 30 ft below the surface. This farmer lost a considerable poition of his land some 15 acres, while a great portion of the remainder was covered with soil of a sandy nature fiom 10ft to 30ft in depth.

At midnight on Thursday last, or early on Friday morning, Mr Bundesen was again a heavy sufferer; on this occasion his dwelling and nearly the whole of the contents being destroyed by fire. It is supposed the fire originated in the kitchen, as when Mrs Bundesen and family were aroused this building was completely destroyed, and the dwelling in flames. A most unusual affair in connection with fires now-a-days is that fact that the property destroyed was not insured.

    • Personal: 26 Oct 1891, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland; DEBORAH. FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT October 24 One could hardly expect to meet with much enthusiasm in this quiet unpretentious corner; but the ball held in Mr. P. P. Bundesen's spacious barn was a pleasant surprise to those who have been hibernating for some time. It was in celebration of the winding up for the season of our dancing assembly that this excellent display was made. The votaries of Terpsichore to the number of 27 couples faced the music, and were piloted by Mr. C. Andersen, of Miva, a very genial and affable M. C., to whom many of the young people of this locality can be grateful for their improved deportment. Musicians seemed numerous, and much praise is due to those who entertained us with acordians, picolo,(A. P. Olson), violin (A. Slmpion), and concertina. Refreshments with concomitant comestibles were handed round at very short intervals during the night, thanks to the assiduity of Mesdames. P. Bundesen, Jossen, and Birt, through whose efforts at the commissirait we fared sumptuously. During respite, humorous and sentimental songs were contributed extempore by Mises M. Bundesen, Anderson, Messrs. Bradshaw, Sheehan, Wagner, Payne, Simpson, and others. Messrs. Dradtbaw, Simpson, and Payee sang in character, the last two as niggers. Mr. Bradshaw by comicolalities fairly brought down the house, and had to respond to several encores. Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland, Monday, 26 October 1891

[From our own correspondent] On the 3rd of January we had a heavy thunderstorm with rain and heavy hailstones. The ground was almost covered with hailstones, which did a great deal ot damage to all the young corn. It was stripped as if It had been done with forks. Not a single leaf of tobacco is left sound. It is all cut into holes and rags. The laat couple of days the weather has been fine. The atmosphere still keeps hot, and heavy cloud, hanging about. The hailstorm did not do much damage to the early crops as it is almost all ready to pull, which the farmers ought to be thankful for. It is time for the farmers, to prepare land for wheat and potatoes, and also for the farmers to lookout for some good seed wheat. I think that it would be a wise thing for the farmers to send to Victoria for seed. I intend to send for Talavera and Purple Staw.

While the billy was boiling the people indulged in games on the grass, and after a substantial lunch had been partaken of, Mr and Mrs Bundesen were presented with a beautiful silver coffee pot. Mr Thompson, in making the presentation, said he had been asked to perform a duty that day which was by no means a pleasant one, as it menat parting with two old friends, and parting with friends was always hard; but such was the way of life - the best of friends would have to part sooner or later. And, on behalf of all Deborah people, he wished them good-bye, and in their new home long life, good health and happiness and prosperity. He then made the presentation to Mrs Bundesen, and said he wanted her to make coffee in it every day, and while they were drinking the coffee, the pot would remind them of the friends they had left behind. When Mr Bundesen rose to reply, the old gentleman was visibly affected. He thanked their many friends very much for the kind regards, and said they felt the parting very much. Games were again played till evening, when another lunch was partaken of, and the young people wound up with a dance in the barn till 12 o'clock. Mr and Mrs Bundesen came to Queensland with their young family from New Zealand about 32 years ago, and have resided here ever since, their occupation being farming and dairying.

    IMMIGRANTS BY THE FRIEDEBURG.
    The first shipment of immigrants direct from Germany arrived in Port Lyttelton on Saturday last. The fine iron ship Friedeburg, Captain Kopper, made the passage from Hamburg in 102 days, and it is very satisfactory to , report that the immigrants have arrived at their destination in excellent health and spirits.
    The ship was signalled outside the heads on Friday afternoon, but the name of the vessel could notc be ascertained until the following day. This fact suggests the urgent necessity that exists for the establishment of telegraphic communication between the Godley Head lighthouse, the signal station, and the telegraph offico in Lyttelton. The expense would not be very great, in fact it would appear as trifling contrasted withh the utility of the work. The lighthouse-keeper could soon be instructed in the art, so that the names of vessels could be telegraphed to Lyttelton and Christchurch immediately upon the signals being made out.
    His Honor the Deputy-Superintendent, Mr J. E. March (Chief Immigration Officer), Dr Haast, Mr Ruddenklau, and Mr Monson left Christchurch for Lyttelton by the half-past eight o'clock train. Messrs Ruddenklau and Monson proceeded to port in the capacity of interpreters ? the former as between the Government officials and the German immigrants, and the latter as interpreter between the officials and the Danes and Norwegians. Tho party was joined in Lyttelton by Drs Donald and Rouse and Captain Gibson, who, together with Mr March, are tho Immigration Commissioners for the province. The s.s. Gazello, Capt McLellan, was chartered to take the party to the vessel. The Gazelle started about 10 o'clock, taking the Ben Moro in tow, but some delay was occasioned through the barque getting fast on a bank, which has formed a short distance from the wharf. As soon as she was got off, she was towed to the middle of the stream and left there, and the Gazelle proceeded to the ship, which was lying at anchor two miles outside the North Head. On approaching the vessel, the flag flying at the stern bespoke her country, and there was no longer any doubt as to her being the Freideburg. Drawing nearer the immigrants were mounted on the bulwarks of the ship anxiously awaiting our arrival, and the chorus of a cluster of single women on the pocp settled the point as to their nationality. Seen from the deck of the Gazelle, the large group of immigrants presented a somewhat novel spectacle. Three or four nations were there represented ? the G«rmanic,t heGennanic Polish, tho Norwegian, and the Danish, all chattering away in the language and dialects of their respective countries. Dr Donald, as Health Officer, was the first to go on board, and as all was well, the whole party followed .shortly afterwards. The immigrants were in the veiy best of spirits, and spoke hopefully of the future in their adopted home. Unfortunately, not one of them could speak English, and they expressed a considerable amount of anxiety in consequence, but they were in a great measure consoled when told that there were several of their countrymen in the province, and that they would soon be able to pick up the language in a country where English was universally spoken. Among the immigrants there aro some who have won decorations for services in the field. One has been in the Holstein, Austrian, and Franco- German wars, and another in tho two latter campaigns.
    The usual official inspection by the Immigration Commissioners was commenced shortly after going on board. Beginning with the single women's compartment, the muster roll was called over, and the girls were asked (through tho interpreters) whether they had any complaints to make. . Their general reply was that they had been well treated during the voyage. In the married couples' compartment, every, head of a family was asked separately if he had anything to complain of. In the majority of cases tho reply was a negative one, but there were a few who complained of the quality of the water and the insufficiency of diet served out to them. Dr Temple was asked to express his opinion with reference to tho dietary scale, and he said he thought the quantities of some of the items were too small. Amongst the married couples, one immigrant was pointed out as having walked from the Russian frontier to Hamburg (a distance of about 800 miles) with his wife and five or six children, sleeping at farm houses and oftentimes in the open air on their way to join the ship. It was a curious fact, that while those on one side of the vessel (Polish-Germans) complained about the insufficiency of food ; those on tho opposite side (Norwegians and Danes) expressed entire satisfaction. The former were asked how they could account for this, and their reply was that the latter were richer than themselves, and besides bringing more comforts with them, had money onough to enable them to procure what they wanted. The same thing, however, was noticeable in the single men's compartment ; here tho Danes and Norwegians were perfectly satisfied with their treatment on board, while a few of the Germans and Polish-Germans complained of the quality of the water and the insufficiency of the dietary scale. The captain and doctor speak very highly of the conduct of the Norwegians and Danes and most of his own countrymen during the voyage from Hamburg. We were pleased to observe the cleanliness of the ship in every part, and it is doubtless owing to the care taken in this respect that the health of the passengers has been so successfully maintained.
    Speaking of the immigrants as a whole, they are undoubtedly a very good selection, and if they follow the excellent advice given to them by the two interpreters, they will have no reason to regret coming to New Zealand. Their ignorance of English will doubtless be a considerable disadvantage to them for some time, but they will not be long in acquiring a sufficient knowledge of the language to enable them to get along comfortably with those by whom they may be employed. It is probable that many of them will find employment from their own countrymen.
    The Friedeburg sailed from Hamburg on the 18th of May, having on board 292 persons, representing 241 adults. On the voyage over, there was one death ? a child 11 months old ? and six births, thus increasing the number of souls to 297. Of this number 200 are above 12 years old, 82 are between 1 and 12 years, and 15 under 1 year. There are 61 single women, 33 single men, 53 married couples, and 97 children and infants, including the six born on the passage. With regard to nationalities, the numbers are as follows : ? Germans (including Polish), 102 persons above 12 years, 68 children and 5 infants ; Norwegians, 51 persons above 12 years, 5 children, and 3 infants ; Danes, 47 persons above 12 years, 9 children, aud 2 infants. This total of 10 infants does not include those born since the sailing of the ship. The ship is admirably adapted for the conveyance of immigrants, and is superior in many respects to the vessels that come from London. The height between decks is 8ft and 8ft (lin, the ventilation is good, but there is an insufficiency of light in all the compartments. Captain E. Kopper has made one trip to Queensland in the Friedeburg with 300 immigrants, and he is highly spoken of by those who have now reached Canterbury under his charge. The surgeon-superintendent, Dr D L. Temple, who speaks German very fluently and Danish moderately well, deserves to be complimented upon the healthy condition in which so many persons have reached their destination.
    The immigrants will disembark after noon today, and will be conveyed by special train to Addington. The Barracks will be open to employers on Thursday. We are informed that at the Immigration Barracks no fewer than 90 applications for domestic servants have been received. Mr March has remained on board the ship smce Saturday, and will not leave until the disembarkation is completed. Messrs Ruddenklau and Morrison will act as interpreters during the stay of the immigrants at the Barracks

    Hokitika is a small town in the West Coast region of New Zealand's South Island, 40 kilometres (25 mi) south of Greymouth, and close to the mouth of the Hokitika River.
    Founded on gold mining in 1864, it was a centre of the West Coast Gold Rush. By late 1866, it was one of New Zealand's most populous centres. On 16 September 1867, there were 41 vessels alongside the wharf at Hokitika, in some places three and four deep. In 1867, the port of Hokitika ranked first in New Zealand in both the number of vessels entered inwards and in the total value of exports; principally gold.

While the billy was boiling the people indulged in games on the grass, and after a substantial lunch had been partaken of, Mr and Mrs Bundesen were presented with a beautiful silver coffee pot. Mr Thompson, in making the presentation, said he had been asked to perform a duty that day which was by no means a pleasant one, as it menat parting with two old friends, and parting with friends was always hard; but such was the way of life - the best of friends would have to part sooner or later. And, on behalf of all Deborah people, he wished them good-bye, and in their new home long life, good health and happiness and prosperity. He then made the presentation to Mrs Bundesen, and said he wanted her to make coffee in it every day, and while they were drinking the coffee, the pot would remind them of the friends they had left behind. When Mr Bundesen rose to reply, the old gentleman was visibly affected. He thanked their many friends very much for the kind regards, and said they felt the parting very much. Games were again played till evening, when another lunch was partaken of, and the young people wound up with a dance in the barn till 12 o'clock. Mr and Mrs Bundesen came to Queensland with their young family from New Zealand about 32 years ago, and have resided here ever since, their occupation being farming and dairying. The family are all married and living elsewhere. Mr and Mrs Bundesen go to Pialba, where they will live a quiet, retired life for the future.

    IMMIGRANTS BY THE FRIEDEBURG.
    The first shipment of immigrants direct from Germany arrived in Port Lyttelton on Saturday last. The fine iron ship Friedeburg, Captain Kopper, made the passage from Hamburg in 102 days, and it is very satisfactory to , report that the immigrants have arrived at their destination in excellent health and spirits.
    The ship was signalled outside the heads on Friday afternoon, but the name of the vessel could notc be ascertained until the following day. This fact suggests the urgent necessity that exists for the establishment of telegraphic communication between the Godley Head lighthouse, the signal station, and the telegraph offico in Lyttelton. The expense would not be very great, in fact it would appear as trifling contrasted withh the utility of the work. The lighthouse-keeper could soon be instructed in the art, so that the names of vessels could be telegraphed to Lyttelton and Christchurch immediately upon the signals being made out.
    His Honor the Deputy-Superintendent, Mr J. E. March (Chief Immigration Officer), Dr Haast, Mr Ruddenklau, and Mr Monson left Christchurch for Lyttelton by the half-past eight o'clock train. Messrs Ruddenklau and Monson proceeded to port in the capacity of interpreters ? the former as between the Government officials and the German immigrants, and the latter as interpreter between the officials and the Danes and Norwegians. Tho party was joined in Lyttelton by Drs Donald and Rouse and Captain Gibson, who, together with Mr March, are tho Immigration Commissioners for the province. The s.s. Gazello, Capt McLellan, was chartered to take the party to the vessel. The Gazelle started about 10 o'clock, taking the Ben Moro in tow, but some delay was occasioned through the barque getting fast on a bank, which has formed a short distance from the wharf. As soon as she was got off, she was towed to the middle of the stream and left there, and the Gazelle proceeded to the ship, which was lying at anchor two miles outside the North Head. On approaching the vessel, the flag flying at the stern bespoke her country, and there was no longer any doubt as to her being the Freideburg. Drawing nearer the immigrants were mounted on the bulwarks of the ship anxiously awaiting our arrival, and the chorus of a cluster of single women on the pocp settled the point as to their nationality. Seen from the deck of the Gazelle, the large group of immigrants presented a somewhat novel spectacle. Three or four nations were there represented ? the G«rmanic,t heGennanic Polish, tho Norwegian, and the Danish, all chattering away in the language and dialects of their respective countries. Dr Donald, as Health Officer, was the first to go on board, and as all was well, the whole party followed .shortly afterwards. The immigrants were in the veiy best of spirits, and spoke hopefully of the future in their adopted home. Unfortunately, not one of them could speak English, and they expressed a considerable amount of anxiety in consequence, but they were in a great measure consoled when told that there were several of their countrymen in the province, and that they would soon be able to pick up the language in a country where English was universally spoken. Among the immigrants there aro some who have won decorations for services in the field. One has been in the Holstein, Austrian, and Franco- German wars, and another in tho two latter campaigns.
    The usual official inspection by the Immigration Commissioners was commenced shortly after going on board. Beginning with the single women's compartment, the muster roll was called over, and the girls were asked (through tho interpreters) whether they had any complaints to make. . Their general reply was that they had been well treated during the voyage. In the married couples' compartment, every, head of a family was asked separately if he had anything to complain of. In the majority of cases tho reply was a negative one, but there were a few who complained of the quality of the water and the insufficiency of diet served out to them. Dr Temple was asked to express his opinion with reference to tho dietary scale, and he said he thought the quantities of some of the items were too small. Amongst the married couples, one immigrant was pointed out as having walked from the Russian frontier to Hamburg (a distance of about 800 miles) with his wife and five or six children, sleeping at farm houses and oftentimes in the open air on their way to join the ship. It was a curious fact, that while those on one side of the vessel (Polish-Germans) complained about the insufficiency of food ; those on tho opposite side (Norwegians and Danes) expressed entire satisfaction. The former were asked how they could account for this, and their reply was that the latter were richer than themselves, and besides bringing more comforts with them, had money onough to enable them to procure what they wanted. The same thing, however, was noticeable in the single men's compartment ; here tho Danes and Norwegians were perfectly satisfied with their treatment on board, while a few of the Germans and Polish-Germans complained of the quality of the water and the insufficiency of the dietary scale. The captain and doctor speak very highly of the conduct of the Norwegians and Danes and most of his own countrymen during the voyage from Hamburg. We were pleased to observe the cleanliness of the ship in every part, and it is doubtless owing to the care taken in this respect that the health of the passengers has been so successfully maintained.
    Speaking of the immigrants as a whole, they are undoubtedly a very good selection, and if they follow the excellent advice given to them by the two interpreters, they will have no reason to regret coming to New Zealand. Their ignorance of English will doubtless be a considerable disadvantage to them for some time, but they will not be long in acquiring a sufficient knowledge of the language to enable them to get along comfortably with those by whom they may be employed. It is probable that many of them will find employment from their own countrymen.
    The Friedeburg sailed from Hamburg on the 18th of May, having on board 292 persons, representing 241 adults. On the voyage over, there was one death ? a child 11 months old ? and six births, thus increasing the number of souls to 297. Of this number 200 are above 12 years old, 82 are between 1 and 12 years, and 15 under 1 year. There are 61 single women, 33 single men, 53 married couples, and 97 children and infants, including the six born on the passage. With regard to nationalities, the numbers are as follows : ? Germans (including Polish), 102 persons above 12 years, 68 children and 5 infants ; Norwegians, 51 persons above 12 years, 5 children, and 3 infants ; Danes, 47 persons above 12 years, 9 children, aud 2 infants. This total of 10 infants does not include those born since the sailing of the ship. The ship is admirably adapted for the conveyance of immigrants, and is superior in many respects to the vessels that come from London. The height between decks is Bft and Bft (lin, the ventilation is good, but there is an insufficiency of light in all the compartments. Captain E. Kopper has made one trip to Queensland in the Friedeburg with 300 immigrants, and he is highly spoken of by those who have now reached Canterbury under his charge. The surgeon-superintendent, Dr D L. Temple, who speaks German very fluently and Danish moderately well, deserves to be complimented upon the healthy condition in which so many persons have reached their destination.
    The immigrants will disembark after noon today, and will be conveyed by special train to Addington. The Barracks will be open to employers on Thursday. We are informed that at the Immigration Barracks no fewer than 90 applications for domestic servants have been received. Mr March has remained on board the ship smce Saturday, and will not leave until the disembarkation is completed. Messrs Ruddenklau and Morrison will act as interpreters during the stay of the immigrants at the Barracks
