Palatine Ship Charming Nancy 1738

Contributor Karen Sue (Salyer) Richey
Source: Pennsylvania German Pioneers by Ralph Beaver Strassburger, LL.D., Volume 1 of 2, Baltimore Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1980.

When you find () with letters in it, it indicates the letters were in superscript. *To get the correct German name, the ending "in" ought to be dropped as it is the feminine ending in German.

SECOND LIST (There are 3 records of this list A, B, C. Each list has different spellings etc.)

"At the Court House of Philiadelphia, November 9th, 1738. Present: The Honourable George Thomas, Esq(r), Lieutenant Governour. The Palatines whose Names are underwritten, imported in the Ship the Charming Nancy, Charles Stedman, Com(r), from Rotterdam, but last from Cowes in England, did this day take and Subscribe the Oaths to the Government, viz.,

Karen's note:
My husband's ancestor is Jacob Hostedler aka Howstetter aka Hochstadler (depending on which list) from the Charming Nancy. I have a book called "Descendants of Jacob Hochstetler" by Harvey Hochstetler. This book follows Jacob's descendants into the 1900's and is *very* extensive, perhaps even exhaustive. It lists thousands of descendants and a lot of interesting history including Jacob's capture (and 2 sons) by Indians (they lived with them many years before escaping). His wife and other family members were killed. Many descendants are Amish or Mennonite. I would be willing to do lookups for people who think they are related.

Please note: The book was later found to be in error on one point only: which ship Jacob arrived on. The book places Jacob on the Harle when in fact the ship was the Charming Nancy. Please e-mail me if you would like a copy of an article on this issue.

5-Step Search for Your Immigrant Ancestor in North America

Step 1: First search for your immigrant ancestor in the five major ports of arrival - New York New York, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Baltimore Maryland, Boston Massachusetts and New Orleans Louisiana

Naturalization Records are a great way to find an ancestor's arrival year and ship name!

Step 2: If you don't find your immigrant ancestor in a large port city, try smaller ports of arrival - Virginia, Connecticut, Delaware, Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maine, Rhode Island, Florida, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Michigan, Alaska, California, Hawaii and Washington

Step 3: Still can't find your immigrant ancestor on an American ships passenger list? Try a Canadian Port of Arrival and the Canada-U.S. border crossing records (Saint Albans Lists).

Step 4: If you still can't find your ancestor in free ships passenger lists, try ships passenger lists and naturalization records on a pay site. See the Immigration Comparison Chart to help you decide which of the fee-based sites has the passenger lists you need to find your immigrant ancestor

Step 5: Search for ships passengers in Ethnic Groups immigrating to America, other miscellaneous ports of arrival, Ships Passenger Lists on NARA microfilm, J.J. Cooke Shipping Agent Records, Castle Garden New York Ships Passenger Lists 1855-1890, Ellis Island New York Ships Passenger Lists 1894-1927 & Naturalization Records
