Palatine German Pioneers - Christoph Warner aka Werner
Christoph Warner aka WernerIn the original documents in the Britsh Museum Library is a list of Germans who came to England in 1709, Board of Trade, Miscellaneous, Vol 2 D57 A list of poor Germans lately come over from the Palitinate into this Kingdom. Taken in St Catharines the sixth day of May 1709
On the first list, May 6, 1709: Christopher Werner, age 35, wth wife Magdalena, age 25, and one son Matthes, age 3 sailed from England (Jan 10, 1710) on ship Lydon [Lyon] and arrived in America June 13, 1710
From the Documentary history of New York by E. B O'Calloghan, p 564. Christopher and family did not go to the Camp on the Hudson immediately, but remained in NY in 1710. In 1717 Christopher and Magdalena were at New Stuttgart, NY with three children according to the Simmendinger Register, published 1717 in Germany. Translated by Rev. H F Vesper.
Christoph Werner was #805 on the New York Hunter Lists. He was only one name from Michael Werner on the Hunter Subsistence Rolls on 4 aug. 1710. Since the lists were not in alphabetical order, there was likely a relationship. He probably came from Rheinfels as did Michael. Christoff Werner age 33, wife and son age 1, Lutheran husbandman and Vinedresser, were in the first arrivals of Palatines in England in 1709.
Christoph Werner made his first appearance on the Hunter Lists on 4 Aug. 1710 with 2 people over 10 yrs and one person under 10 in his household. Ond 24 Dec. 1711 the family had 2 persons over 10 and 2 under 10.
Christoph Werner, 35, and Maria Magdalena Werner age 23, and John Matheus Werner age 3 were in New York City in 1710/11. He was naturalized on 13 March 1715/16 in Albany. Christoph Werner and Magdalena with 3 children were at NeuStuttgardt in 1716/17.
Christoph Werner married Maria Magdalena Dewes, who joined the Lutheran Church at Newtown on 12 June 1712. She appeared on Pastor Sommer's family List at Schoharie ca 1744. She died 29 Feb. 1744 age 57 years in Schoharie. The Schoharie Luterhan Churchbooks lists the death of Magdalena.
