Non-British subjects who applied for naturalization compiled from lists in the South Australian Government Gazettes, with additional information from files at the National Archives of Australia and State Records of South Australia. Also included are the Prussian Lutherans who took the Oath of Allegiance in 1839 but were not naturalized at that time.

The SA Government Gazettes and the National Archives index contain some spelling errors that are noted.

A source flagged * indicates an errata list in the SA Government Gazette.
