  • He was the son of Johann Friedrich Christof Albig and Johanna Rosina Heiss.1
  • His changed his name to Jacob Andrew Heiss. Just why he changed his surname is unclear. Perhaps his father had warned him not to apply with the surname of Albig, since Frederick and Rosina had both falsified their ages in order to qualify for assisted passage to Australia on the "Undine" in 1855.
  • Jakob Andreas Heiss and Johann Martin Bonhag immigrated to Sydney on 17 September 1857. He arrived on the ship "Gottorp" from Bremen in Germany. (The passenger list does not show individuals).

  • In 1863 Jacob applied for Naturalization. The record shows he was 30 years old, living in Tenterfield and arrived on the "Gottorp."3
  • At the age of 31 years, 3 months and 18 days, Jakob Andreas Heiss married Sophia Sopp, daughter of Johann Sopp and Marithis Elizabeth Gesang, on 29 February 1864 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia. The marriage certificte shows Jacob was a bachelor labourer, living in Tenterfield, and Catherine a spinster house servant living in Tenterfield. Their ages and details of their parents were not given. Witnesses to the marriage were Johnann Bonhag (Jacob's nephew), and Elizabeth Sopp (Sophie's sister). The minister was James Hart Johnson.5,6
  • Jakob Andreas Heiss and Sophia Sopp had nine children - John F who died as a young man aged 20, Rosina Mary who died aged two years, Frederick Andrew, Mary Catherine, twins Charles and Henry, Andrew, George and William. All of the children were born in Tenterfield.
  • In 1872 In 1872 Jacob was listed in the Grenville Post Office Directory as a carpenter, Jacob Heiz, living in Tenterfield.7
  • In 1872 his name appeared in Greville's Post Office Directory. He was a carpenter. The name was spelt HEIZ.8
  • The following article appeared in the "Maitland Mercury" on August 28 (no year given). NEW ENGLAND. (From the Tenterfield Star, Aug. 38.) An accident of a serious nature happened on Saturday morning last to a youth, named John Heiss, son of Mr. Jacob Heiss, contractor, Tenterfield. The day was very windy, and clouds of dust were flying, and the boy was assisting his father at a building, which is in course of erection in Rouse-street, and was going along the scaffolding carrying a batten, when he unfortunately missed his footing, blinded it is thought by the dust, and fell from the scaffold to the ground, striking in his fall some protruding brick work, thus causing a fracture of his right leg a little above the ankle. We are glad however to hear that he is now doing well."9
  • Jakob Andreas Heiss died on 3 April 1913 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia, at age 80. His death certificate shows him as Jacob HEISS (not Albig) and his parents are listed as Frederick HEISS and Rosina.10,11

Johanna Rosina Heiss1,2,3

F, b. circa 1794, d. 23 February 1860
  • Johanna Rosina Heiss was also known as Rosina.
  • She was born circa 1794 in Wurtenburg, Germany. Other sources show her birth place as Untereisesheim, Germany.4,3
  • She was the daughter of Georg Michael Heiss and Magdalena Kubach.5
  • Johanna Rosina Heiss married Johann Friedrich Christof Albig, son of Georg Peter Albig and Marie Salome Hessinger, circa 1816 in Wurtenburg, Germany. According to a researcher in Germany, Rosina and Frederick had 13 children, but only 4 lived to adulthood. Three of these, Lorenz, Adreas Jakob and Magdalena Rosina came to Australia, Lorenz and Magdalena Rosina with their parents in 1855.5
  • In August 1854 Frederick, Rosine and their two children Lorenz and Rosine applied to emigrate to Australia. Rosine (younger)'s date of birth was given as 31 Dec 1835. The date of birth of the other three was not recorded. They were all noted as born in Koschendorf District of Neckarsuim.6
  • Johanna Rosina Heiss and Johann Friedrich Christof Albig immigrated to Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, on 13 February 1855. Frederick's immigration record showed him as Friedrich Albrih, 45, travelling with Rosina aged 54 presumedly his wife, Rosina 19, and Lawrence 35. They came to Australia on the "Undine". However the Victorian Immigration records show another family, the Albich family had travelled on the "Undine" bound for Melbourne - this family consisted of a W Albich, 49, travelling with Rosine aged 47 presumedly his wife, Rosine 18, and Lorenz 27, presumedly their son.
    According to an article published by the Burwood & District Family History Group, shipping arrangements for some emigrants fell through because of the lack of numbers and the passengers had to be re-assigned. A surviving passenger contract for Frederick Albrich and his family shows the family were stranded when no suitable ship could be found for them. This would account for the different information held by the Victorian and NSW immigration authorities.
    The cut off age for assisted immigrants was 50. However, hopeful passengers often gave incorrect information in order to qualify for assisted passage. Frederick was most likely amongst their numbers, since his son Lorenz stated his age as 35 and Frederick was only 45 on his application. Frederick was at least 58 when he arrived in Australia, perhaps older.
    An article on German immigration "Auswanderer nach Australien" shows a family consisting of Christopher Albig (1790-1863), Roas born Heiss emigrated to Australia in 1854. Both died there. It says their three children Lorenz, Andreas and Rosine travelled with them. There is no record of Andreas in either the NSW or Victorian immigration records, but its believed he came to Australia later under the name of Jacob Andrew Heiss. Although the ages differ, Lorenz and Lawrence are likely the same person.7,8,9
  • Between 1855 and 1856 Johanna Rosina Heiss and Johann Friedrich Christof Albig lived in "Wyangarie" Station, Upper Richmond. Their grandaughter Rose Bailey (nee Werner)'s obituary written in 1952 states that the family were living at "Wyangarie" Station on the Upper Richmond (near Tabulum) before they moved to Tenterfield. Frederick's immigration details show he was assigned to Wellington Cochrane Bundock of Richmond River owner of "Wyangarie" Station.
    Although Frederick and Rosina came as assisted passengers, they were by no means poor. According to their application, Frederick Albich had 300 fl, was a farmer, well digger from Bauer und Brunnennacher.
    Frederick's son Lorenz died after a fall from a horse at the station in 1856, eighteen months after the famiy arrived in Australia. Perhaps Frederick and his wife and daughter moved to Tenterfield after the accident.10,9,11
  • Johanna Rosina Heiss died on 23 February 1860 in Tenterfield, New South Wales. Rosina's death certfiicate shows she was born Wurternburg, Germany and had been in New South Wales for 5 years. Maiden name Heiss, her father was a farmer. The informant was her son in law Louis Werner. Husband's name Frederick Albig. She was 66 years old and died of dropsy.4
  • She was buried on 25 February 1860 in Tenterfield Cemetery. She is buried in an unmarked grave in the General Section of the cemeter. There were no Ministers of religion in attendance, and no witnesses listed. Perhaps there wasn't a minister to perform the ceremony.4,12

An accident of a serious nature happened on Saturday morning last to a youth, named John Heiss, son of Mr. Jacob Heiss, contractor, Tenterfield. The day was very windy, and clouds of dust were flying, and the boy was assisting his father at a building, which is in course of erection in Rouse-street, and was going along the scaffolding carrying a batten, when he unfortunately missed his footing, blinded it is thought by the dust, and fell from the scaffold to the ground, striking in his fall some protruding brick work, thus causing a fracture of his right leg a little above the ankle.
