I’ve just had a message from Torben Devantie in Denmark:
I will just let you know, that the adress on my website The Devantier Family Tree, has changes a little bit.
It is now just
And if you are on facebook I have a group there called Devantier Family.
There is also a group on Orkut, Família Devantier, which has 55 members, mostly from the South American branches of the Devantier family.
Our branch of the Devantier family were Huguenots who left France in the 17th century and settled in Brandenberg, north-east of Berlin. From there descendants have spread to many parts of the world. A large group went to Denmark, and some have gone to North America, Australia and Brazil. There is more information about the family on our Devantier family page on Wikispaces.
Torben Devantie’s web site has a lot of genealogical information on the family, showing how the various branches are linked.

A few years ago Deborah Devantier posted this on a message board, and I must have missed it at the time:
I am researching my husband’s family tree and know that his gradfather Otto Wilhelm Devantier arrived with his mother and 6 siblings in Queensland Australia in 1874. Unfortunately his father died on the voyage out and all we know was that he was Carl Wilhelm Friedrich Devantier born 1834 in Schonermark. Other names that are given on marriage and death certificates are Schwedt, Angemunde, Niederlandin and Uckermark. I realise there was a large Devantier family in this area, and have seen the family trees posted on the web. Would very much like to connect Carl Wilhelm Friedrich.
I do have a link to this family, and can give information on ancestors, and hope to get some on descendants. So I hope Deboarh (and other Devantier researchers) will get in touch.
