Nicholas Eveland (1732)

In 1732, Palatines boarded the Pink Johnson (a ship out of London) at Rotterdam. The ship ported at Deal, England and then at Cowes, England prior to setting sail for America. The ship arrived at Philadelphia on Sept. 18, 1732. On board were 330 passengers, including 6 Evelands:

* Family of 5

1. Nicholas Evelandt (listed as a man above 16 years, and believed to be the father)

2. Regina Evelandt (listed as a woman above 14 years and believed to be the mother)

3. Jacob Evelandt (boy under 16)

4. Maria Evelandt (girl under 14)

5. Martin Evelandt (boy under 16)

*A single individual

b. Nichlaus Eveland (note the differences in the spelling of the two older males)

My concern is to determine if these prople were related to Johann David Ifflandt who arrived in America from Germany in 1710; or were they English? It is curious that their last names were spelled with an "E" instead of and"I". There were Evelands in England at that time. My questions are:

1. Who were these people?

2. Where were they from? Were they Germans or English? It was registered that passengers boarded at Deal, and there is indication that the single Nicholaus Eveland may have boarded at Deal, not at Rotterdam.

3. What happened to them in America? who were their Descendants?
