- /ˈkavəl/ (say 'kahvuhl)
August Ludwig Christian, 1798–1860, Australian Lutheran minister, born in Germany; emigrated with his congregation and founded the first German settlements in Australia.
August Kavel sought the help of George Fife Angas in England to bring his persecuted Lutheran congregation to SA where they could worship freely. Kavel arrived in 1838 with some 200 people and established the town of Klemzig, north-west of Adelaide. A further settlement was established at Hahndorf and the colonists prospered through dairying and market gardening.
