Notes

Note N262In 1777, Pennsylvania declared that any resident found sympathetic to the British would face the gallows and his property would be surrendered to the state. 1

Took the Oath of Allegiance before the Hon. Adam Nees in Cocalico Township (Ephrata) in 1778 (p. 468) and Michael Heller, Lieutenant, Fourth company, Fourth Battalion, Aug 26, 1780 (p. 367). 1

The Information in the book were taken from the Pennsylvania Archives, Second Series, Volume XIII, as published under the direction of W. S. Stenger, Secretary of the Commonwealth and edited by Dr. William H. Egle in 1887. 1

Redemptioners were European immigrants, generally in the 18th or early 19th century, who gained passage to American Colonies (most often Pennsylvania) by selling themselves into indentured servitude to pay back the shipping company which had advanced the cost of the transatlantic voyage. 1

The German Redemptioners | Early Emigrants to Pennsylvania.

February 18, 2013. 1

Awhile back I wrote about the bonded (convicts) and indentured servants who came to America from England. What I didn’t address there was the very similar plight of the German Redemptioners, who came to America at about the same time, settled primarily in Pennsylvania, and experienced very similar hardships and fate. 1

The History. 1 term “redemptioner” stems from the practice of an apprentice fulfilling his obligation to his master and therefore being “redeemed.” Similarly, the practice of indenture, bonding, or redemptioners all stem from the much-accepted practice of apprenticeship, where a young man would learn a trade and in return serve a certain number of years in unpaid labor for the master. The practice was common in England … and in Germany. 1

In Germany there were two types of redemptioners - “indentured servants,” who made arrangements before leaving home to work for the benefactor (American farmer or tradesman) of his passage fare for a certain number of years; and the “free-willers,” who agreed to be sold into servitude by the ship captain in compensation for his passage to America. 1

Additionally, there was a character called a “Newlander,” who trafficked in unwitting peasants. He was well dressed and professed to be a successful merchant from Philadelphia. He would traverse up and down the Rhine River looking for persons to “convince” there was an opportunity for them in America, when in reality he was selling them into indenture. He would receive a /head commission for each person collected from the ship captain, who would in turn sell them upon arrival in America. 1

The practice began in England in the late 1600s, early 1700s. It didn’t come into wide practice in Germany until the 1770s, after the more well-off Palatines had already came to America, and those less well off and left behind were hearing the stories of great fortune in America. 1

Once in America their life - male and female alike - was that of hard labor in the farms and fields for a period of three, five, or most typically, seven years. Just as their English counterparts experienced, there were stiff penalties for having a child, running away, or any other infraction of the law. Notably, in Pennsylvania, William Penn put in place a number of laws or regulations to protect both the servant and master. 1

Servants were not allowed to be sold into another colony without the servant’s consent. were not allowed to be sold to another party without a Justice being present. were allowed to become soldiers with the consent of their masters. 1

With this general introduction, I offer a few resources to extend your research.

Note N330First Title to Land. 1

The proprietors and the Commonwealth in most cases provided individuals first, or original, title to land in Pennsylvania through a five-step process: 1

APPLICATION: Under William Penn, oral requests to purchase a specific number of acres at a particular location were made. Under his heirs, applications were written requests and often gave the reason for the request. Later applications may provide researchers with important historical details, such as when the property was first settled. 1

WARRANT: This is a written order, based on the application, to survey the requested tract of land. 1

SURVEY: A surveyor physically measured and marked the land on its premises. 1

RETURN OF SURVEY: A statement certifying that the survey is complete was added to the application. It included a diagram of the land and a written description of the property. 1

PATENT: A written first title to the property conveying ownership to the individual submitting the application. 1

Subsequent transactions involving the property were conducted usually, but not always, on a county basis.

Note N333.

Burgerts' book, Palatine Origins of Some Pennsylvania Pioneers, points us to two possible locations: 1

1. ch-5734 reinach ag. 1

2. ch-4153 reinach bl. 1

The first is in the canton of Aargau and the second is in Basel. 1

Now, if we read a bit on the history of Bern, we learn that it conquered Aargau in 1415, some 250 years before the events concerning Rudolph. Therefore, it is my opinion that Rudolph's Rhynach, Bern is our Reinach, Aargau. The spelling may be a bit different, but it complies with the modern German use of pronouncing the second of two vowels when placed together - the "i" - as in Rhine - while the first vowel remains silent.
