Young German apprentices in those days travelled from place to place working under a master craftsman earning a living as they went and sleeping wherever they could.
The German word 'walz' became 'waltz' in Australia. The waltz was a fashionable dance at the time, and Australians were familiar with it. Matilda has German origins too and means Mighty Battle Maiden. It is believed to have been given to females who accompanied soldiers during the Thirty Year Wars in Europe.
