Pastor August Ludwig Christian Kavel was one of the main figures regarding early Lutheran settlement in SA. In 1826 he became pastor in the village of Klemzig near Zullichau where he greatly influenced the spiritual life of the inhabitants.

As the persecution continued, he thought of emigrating with his flock and went to London to seek help from George Fife Angas. He heard that Angas had considerable interest in the new colony of SA for which he was anxious to procure settlers. With financial help from Angas, 250 people boarded the Prince George and Bengalee ships on 8 July, 1838. After arriving in SA on 20 November, 1838, they settled first at Port Adelaide and then on 144 acres of Angas land on the banks of the Torrens. They named their village Klemzig.
