With the Forefathers of Wenrich's Church, by Nevin W. Moyer, 1922
Sent to America by Queene Anne of England, transported to New York in ten small ships by Governor Robert Hunter of New York in 1710, then, to pay for their passage, sent up the Hudson River and put to work at the impossible task of trying to
make tar and pitch out of the wrong kind of pine trees, they first experienced the thrill of the adventurous journey to the new world, then the discomfiture of failing in their appointed task, and the consequent displeasure of the Governor who
was responsible. The disgruntled Governor now bade them shift for themselves. In their extremity they appealed to friendly Indians and obtained permission to settle on lands at Schoharie, New York. Here their sojourn was but temporary, because
the displeased Governor gave their lands to speculators in Albany, who told the Germans to buy the lands or get out.

Governor William Keith of Pennsylvania was more hospitable and invited them to settle in his state. Whereupon, in 1723, thirty-three families floated down the Susquehanna River as far as the mouth of Swatara Creek, up the valley of which they
journeyed till they crossed over into the valley of Tulpehocken Creek, where they founded settlements. With great industry they cleared the and built homes and within a year had also built a Union Church, since both Lutheran and Reformed
churches were represented by these people.

From this time on the colonists made progress but not without many privations and hardships. Eventually they obtained title to their lands and as their numbers increased their children and grandchildren began to spread to nearby regions.

Among this group pf sturdy pioneers were the early Wenrichs and one of this ambitious younger crowd was Francis Wenrich, who bought the Running Pump Farm of 201 1/2 acres in 1784m near what is now known as Linglestown in Dauphin County. He
provided two and three-quarters acres of land for the building of a church in which the United congregations held their services. Then this union church combined with members of the Presbyterian and Episcopal denominations to found a new Union
Church. For this croup a new church house of logs was built in 1794. These early churches were, of course, followed by more modern edifices from time to time.

4908 From Oby Bonawit:
In 1709, wars, severe weather, taxes, religious differences and land hunger induced many Germans living in the Rhineland to leave. Queen Anne of England invited them to London from where some were sent to New York and other colonies. An
embaration list of some of those going to London in 1709 included Balzar Weinrich with wife, 3 sons (ages 7, 5 and 3) and daughter. Balzar was listed as a husbandman and vinedresser.
In a Colonial Census of Palatines at New York in 1710 we find:
Wenerick, Baltzar 40
Wenerick, Elizabeth, 30
Wenerick, Hans George 9
Wenerick, Johan Maltheis, 6
Wenerick, Maria Eliz. 17


Wenerich, Benedictus, 32
Wenerich, Christiana, 33
Wenerich, Franz, 5
Wenerich, Johannes 1/2

The English had a scheme for sending Palatines to New York to collect naval stores for use by the English Navy, but the scheme failed when it was learned that the pine trees were not suitable. Besides, the Germans had their hearts set on
farming and home building.
Many had died on the long sea voyage and more were to die of great deprivation after arrival (2814 lef England, 2344 arrived alive at New York. Some food was made available for a couple of years then cut off. About 1717, a "Simmendinger
Register" listed Balthasar Wenrig at Wormsdorff (a camp on the Hudson above New York.)
Records of KIngston, New Dutch Church show that Juriaan Peeshaar (Beorge Beshore) married Aug. 6, 1716 Marytgen (Mary Eliz. Wenderig), born in the Pals (Pfalz or Palatinate). Their son Baltus, baptized July 31, 1720, was sponsored by
Baltus and Magdalena Wenrig.
In 1722 the Palatines were invited to Pennsylvania where they would be given land for homes. Starting in 1723, some of the Palatine names started showing up at the Tulpehocken (land of the turtle) area in Pennsylvania. Franz (Francis)
Wenrich lived there in 1729 and a list of members of the Christ Lutheran Church of Tulpehocken in 1743-1746 included Franz and Georg Wenrich. According to a recod of the Little Tulpehocken Church (one mile west of Bernville) Balthaser
Wenderich and wife Maria Magdalene were baptismal sponsors in 1726 of Mathias' son John Balthaser Wenrich. In 1739 Mathias Wenrich bought land from Conrd Weiser on Spring Creedk (later Furnace Creek) in what is now Heidelberg Township in Berks
County. It is family tradition that at least some of our first ancestors were buired in the Northkill Churchyard north of Bernville.

The Wenrichs to come from New York in 1723 settled along the Tulpehocken in the area of what is now Stouchsburg. Soon others camd and settled further downstream on North Kill Creek. Births and baptisms of Mathias Wenrich's children were
recorded at the Little Tulpehocken Church starting in 1726. Be bought land near present day Robesonia in 1739.

families remaining in the city of New York, 1710.,

4919 Michael, a Catholic, married Anna Magdelena Schawerin, a Protestant, about 1698 in Wurttemberg, Germany. They were later forced to emigrate to England in 1709 because of war and religious persecution. They lived in a tent city in London until
Queen Anne, a devout Protestant, felt England was overburdened with Germans, and decided to return all Catholics to Germany. At that point, Michale Schauer converted to Lutheranism. Later that year, arrangements were made for Michael and
several thousand other Palatine refugees to leave London for the colonies.
On Christmas Day in 1709, 4000 Germans embarked on ships for New York, but were detained on board the vessels until Easter 1710, awaiting convoys to protect them against the French men-of-war. Approximately 1700 died before arrival in New York,
including Michael Schauer.
Anna settled in the Hudson Valley of New York and eventually remarried.

Wenrich of Trier
German ecclesiastico-polical writer of the eleventh century. He was a canon at Verdun, and afterwards scholasticus at Trier. Sigebert of Gembloux (P. L., CXL, 584 sq.) calls him also Bishop of Vercelli, but the early documents of the diocese
leave no place for him in the list of bishops. Wenrich is the author of an able controversial treatise on behalf of Henry IV during his struggle with Gregory VII (see INVESTITURES, CONFLICT OF). It was probably written in the summer of 1081, at
the urgency of Bishop Dietrich of Verdun, to whom it has also been ascribed. The form is that of an open letter to the pope; the tone is friendly, as though what he had to say was painful to the author. Wenrich disputes the efficiency of the
emperor's excommunication (1080), opposes the laws of celibacy promulgated by the pope, condemns the inciting of the people against the emperor, defends investitures by texts of Scripture and the history of the Church, upbraids Gregory for
being an accomplice in the setting up of a rival king, and reminds the pope that he himself has been accused of unlawful striving after the papal dignity, and even of the use of force to attain this end. A reply was written by Mannegold of
Lautenbach.
