1727 William & Sarah

[List 1 A,B] William & Sarah
Captain: William Hill
From: Rotterdam
By Way of: Dover
Arrival: Philadelphia, 18 Sep 1727
A list of 109 Palatines, along with their families making about 400 persons. No convicts on board. Each adult passenger 16 years old or above was counted as one freight. Children 4-15 were counted as half-freights and were charged half the price of an adult for passage. Children under 4 were transported for free. The number listed next to each man's name was apparently the number of freights he was responsible for. If he came alone it was usually only one. If there were 3 freights, it might represent a husband, wife, and two children age 4-15; a husband wife, and child 16 or older; or some other such combination. These numbers can therefore give a general idea of the size of the family that was transported on the ship. If someone in the family died at sea, they were not counted in the number of freights for that family. The abbreviation Con. or Conn. appeared after several of the names on this list was probably indicated they were planning to settle in the Conestoga settlement (listed in the remarks column). Likewise Germt. and Skibach probably refer to the settlements of Germantown and Skippack (also listed in remarks column). Those listed at the end of the list may have prepaid for their passage and were not listed on the first list where the number of freights was recorded.
