ii ZOETH, b. say 1631; m. by 1657 Abigail _____ (eldest child b. 5 October 1657 [ RIVR 7:64]). (The marriage date is published as "Dec. 1656," with the bride's surname not given [ RIVR 7:21]; this may be a marriage record created by calculation, and the original should be examined.)

iii SAMUEL, b. about 1638 (described as "near 70 years old" in 8 July 1707 [ NGSQ 75:112, citing Bristol County Court of General Sessions 1702-1714:121]); m. by about 1673 Mary Sampson, daughter of Abraham Sampson (eldest child b. about 1673 [ NGSQ 75:112]) [ TAG 15:165-67].

ASSOCIATIONS: Brother of JOHN HOWLAND and Arthur Howland.
COMMENTS: On 22 December 1657 Henry Howland, for entertaining Quaker meetings at his house, was summoned to appear at the next court [ PCR 3:126]. On 2 March 1657/8 he was fined 10s. for entertaining a meeting at his house contrary to the order of the court [ PCR 3:129].
On 7 June 1659 "Henry Howland of Duxburrow" as a Quaker "or manifest encourager of such" is on a list to lose freemanship and is ordered to appear in August to be convicted and censured [ PCR 3:167]. At court 6 October 1659 Henry Howland was disenfranchised for being an "abettor and entertainer of Quakers" [ PCR 3:176].
On 1 May 1660 he was accused of entertaining another man's wife in his house after complaint was made to him by the husband, and for permitting a Quaker meeting in his house, and for entertaining a foreign Quaker contrary to the order of the court. The first charge he "stiffly denied" but he was convicted of the other two and fined [ PCR 3:186]. He was twice fined on 2 October 1660 for entertaining Quaker meetings [ PCR 3:201].
We differ slightly from Wakefield and Sherman [ NGSQ 75:107] in the birth sequence and estimate of birth dates for the children of Henry Howland. The assumption has been made that all the sons were of age when the father made his will, but this makes some of them older than the norm when they marry. Even this arrangement leaves an apparent gap of about seven years between the first two children (Abigail and Zoeth) and the remaining six. These first two children may well have been born in England, and there is the possibility that they were by an e arlier wife and not by Mary.
BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: The parentage and parish of origin of the three Howland brothers was reported in 1938 by Clarence A. Torrey [ TAG 14:214-15]. A definitive article on what is known to date about Henry Howland was published in 1987 by Robert S. Wakefield and Robert M. Sherman [ NGSQ 75:105-16, 216-225].

Generation VIII ? death record of Catharina nee Berger (? Rastatt 31.01.1794)
?Anno Dni [Domini] Millesimo Septingentesimo nonagesimo quarto, die trigesima prima Januari? obiit Catharina nata Berger, Joannis Michaelis Kielmarx, incolae hujatis uxor legitima; a tertius sequenti in cemeteries Ecclesia hujatis proprio sepultus est.?

In the year of the Lord 1794 on 31 January? died Catharina nee Berger, legitimate wife of Johann Michael Kielmarx, citizen here, and was buried at the 3rd day afterwards in the local cemetery

Whilst the city of Rastatt is first mentioned in the Middle Ages, it was not until the Baroque period that the city began to expand. Many buildings still remain from the Baroque period, a fine example of which is Rastatt Palace, the residence of Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm von Baden. It was built between 1699 and 1705, and is a series of large palaces built as a replica of the Palace of Versailles.

Other fine examples are the Rathaus, the Town Hall, and the Pagodenburg, which was built upon the Nymphenburg Park Pagoda in Munich in the 18th Century.

One of Rastatt's most notable residents was Carl Schurz, who participated in the revolutionary uprising in Germany in 1848-49 and famously escaped from the Rastatt Fortress through the sewers. He later emigrated to America where he went on to become US Minister for Interior.

Rastatt is also a large meadowlands area - the Rastatt Rheinau Meadowlands . These are ancient wetlands now legally protected to ensure that the wildlife, some of which is rare, remains protected

Some facts about our region

The rural district Rastatt is in the northern part of the black forest and has a common border with France for approximately 40 kilometres. The river Rhein and his tributarie Murg impress the flat part of the rural district, the "Schwarzwaldhochstrasse" goes up into heights of 1.000 meters and enables excellent views into the neighbour regions.

In the middle of the 13th century the first cities have been established and in the begin of the 18th century margrave Ludwig Wilhelm "der Türkenlouis" declared Rastatt as a baroque capital town; Bühl became a magistrate´s town at the begin of the 19th century and Gaggenau got the municipal law in 1922 when the industrialization started. These three cities still impress the rural district, they are also home of the police-stations.

The industrial business consists of about more than 200 factories. The best known will be Daimler-Chrysler with factories in Rastatt and Gaggenau. A german unique is the school for people in the paper industry, at the same time a technical school with international reputation.

Historic buildings like the castle in Rastatt and the castle "Favorite" are remarkable documents of history. For your pleasure you can enjoy the grapes cultivated in the region around Bühl. These grapes will be bottled every year as the famous "Affentaler" and sold around the whole world.

Faster but much more expensive you can lose the contact to the ground when you take one of the daily starting aeroplanes at the "Baden-Airport" with a growing number of international destinations.

The famous and traditional health resort Baden-Baden with approximately 53.000 inhabitants lies in the center of the rural district Rastatt.

As a touristic highlight you will find the world famous spa and one of the most beautiful casinos in the world. Don´t forget to visit the thermal spa "Caracalla", which is build in the near of the ruins of the roman thermal springs.

The hot springs established the reputation of Baden-Baden as the "Europe´s summer capitol" in the 19th century.

The provincial landmark is the Merkur with a height of 668 meters, also the "house mountain" of Baden-Baden. He got his name from the discovery of a roman votive picture from the god Merkur.

Beginning in 1878, the Rev. M. K. Schermerhorn served as the minister of this congregation for four years. During that short period of time, he inspired the congregation and the entire Unitarian Association to build a monument to honor Channing in his birthplace. This church was built by international subscription. Unitarians from across the country and in England sent contributions in support of the vision of a monument dedicated to the memory and vision of William Ellery Channing. The cornerstone bearing the words "Faith, Hope, Charity" was laid in 1880, the centennial of Channing's birth. The dates carved into the front of the church 1780-1880, pay tribute to this anniversary; 1780 being the date of Channing's birth in Newport. It is significant that this memorial bearing his name is not a cold edifice but houses a thriving Unitarian Universalist congregation.

The church was constructed in little more than a year, built of pink stone from Lyme, Ct. (unlike the gray foreseen by Governor Van Zandt) and was dedicated October 19, 1881. In its new building, the Unitarian society became a forceful religious and cultural center for the Newport community.

ASSOCIATIONS: Brother of HENRY HOWLAND and Arthur Howland.

COMMENTS: In his list of passengers on the Mayflower Bradford tells us that John Howland was one of the "manservants" of JOHN CARVER [ Bradford 441]. During a particularly bad storm on the crossing John Howland (characterized by Bradford as "a lusty young man") went above deck and was swept overboard, but

it pleased God that he caught hold of the topsail halyards which hung overboard and ran out at length. Yet he held his hold (though he was sundry fathoms under water) till he was hauled up by the same rope to the brim of the water, and then with a boat hook and other means got into the ship again and his life saved. And though he was something ill with it, yet he lived many years after and became a profitable member both in church & commonwealth [ Bradford 59].
In his 1651 accounting on the family of John Carver, Bradford reported that "[h]is servant John Howland married the daughter of John Tilley, Elizabeth, and they are both now living, and their eldest daughter hath four children; and their second daughter one, all living, and other of their children marriageable" [ Bradford 444].
In an undated deposition we learn that in April 1634 John Hocking came to Kennebec and challenged the rights of the Plymouth men to their exclusive trade in that place. Mr. John Howland, in charge of the trading post, went out in their bark with several other men and warned Hocking off, but was taunted and defied. Howland "bid three of his men go cut his cable [Hocking's anchor]," but the flow of the stream was too strong and Howland called them back and added Moses Talbot to the crew. Hocking, seeing that their intent was to cut the cable, "presently put his peice almost to Moyses Talbott's head, which Mr. Howland seeing called to him desiring him not to shoot his man but take himself for his mark saying his men did but that which he commanded them and therefore desired him not to hurt any of them, if any wrong was done it was himself that did it and therefore called again to him to take him for his mark saying he stood very fair, but Hocking would not hear nor look towards our bark, but presently shooteth Moyses in the head, and presently took up his pistol in his hand but the Lord stayed him from doing any further hurt by a shot from our bark himself was presently struck dead being shot near the same place in the head where he had murderously shot Moyses" [ MD 2:10-11].
BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: Because of the multitude of descendants of John Howland, through all ten of his children, the publication of the first five generations of descent from John Howland will occupy many volumes. Elizabeth Pearson White has prepared the first two volumes in this series: John Howland of the Mayflower: Volume 1, The First Five Generations, Documented Descendants Through his first child Desire Howland and her husband Captain John Gorham (Camden, Maine, 1990) and John Howland of the Mayflower: Volume 2, The First Five Generations, Documented Descendants Through his second child John Howland and his wife Mary Lee (Camden, Maine, 1993).
In her first volume White argued that John Howland lived for several years in Maine, and that three of his children were born there. Robert S. Wakefield has gathered the evidence that this could not have been the case [ MD 42:15-16].

On 27 January 1639[/40] James "Pennyman" and five others represented their neighbors at Mount Wollaston in an agreement with the town of Boston for 4s. an acre for every two acres of the seven acres formerly granted "to diverse, then of Boston, upon expectation they should have continued with us; and 3s. an acre for every acre that hath been, or shall be, granted to any others who are not inhabitants of Boston and ... all the said lands shall be free from any town rates or charges to Boston, and also from the country charges when the Mount shall be rated by the court ..." and liberty to accept the court's permission to become a town.

Matson, James Penniman, Moses Payne, Francis Eliot for 5s. per acre to be paid to Mr. Henry Flint of Braintree for his own use "on consideration of his late great loss through the hand of God's providence by fire". He was again ordered to pay for this land to Mr. Flint at the town meeting 30 September 1644, having failed to do so in a timely manner.
In his will, dated 18 December 1664 and proved 31 January 1664[/5], "James Pennyman of Braintree" bequeathed "half my uplands, half my meadows, half my orchard, half my barns & outhousing, and all my dwelling house I do give unto my beloved wife, for her support & my lesser children with her"; "the other half I give unto my son Joseph, & if he think good, to improve it all for his mother's comfort ... I think it will be best if he marry & build near my wife"; "my moveable estate I also give wholly to my wife for her support & the education of my lesser children"; "and because God hath blessed me with many children I do commit it to my wife's discretion to do good unto them all, in as near a proportion as she can & to be most helpful to them that have most need"; at her death, to "my children so as to make them as equal sharers as she can"; "my first born, James, having been educated into such a way of living as he is having already had a portion ... [to] answer his double portion"; to "my youngest son Samuel & my three youngest daughters, I give £20 apiece if it be to be had at my wife's decease, or afore if need be, & such as are married, to be made up to such a sum if it be to be had".

ASSOCIATIONS: His wife was sister of Rev. JOHN ELIOT and Philip Eliot of Roxbury, JACOB ELIOT of Boston, Francis Eliot of Braintree, Sarah (Eliot) Curtis, wife of WILLIAM CURTIS of Roxbury, and Mary (Eliot) Payson, wife of Edward Payson of Roxbury and Dorchester.

COMMENTS: He was one of those Boston men to be disarmed in the Wheelwright controversy, 20 November 1637. On about 22 November 1637 "James Paniman" affirmed "that I have never consented to have my hand set to the Petition which gave offense to the Court, neither do I allow of it but do think it was done without warrant".
In 1660 "James Penneman" was one of the inhabitants of Braintree who petitioned the General Court for the establishment of a new plantation, which became the town of Mendon.
The early Braintree vital records have been published in two different places, and the birth date for Samuel Penniman, son of James and Lydia, is given differently in the two locations. The vital events for several years were recorded at one time, and as a result four of the Penniman children were entered together - Hannah, Abigail, Mary and Samuel, in that order. The information on the three daughters is identical in the two published versions, but the son is said in one place to be born "14:9:45" (i.e., 14 November 1645) and in the other "(1) (9) (1655)" (i.e., 1 November 1655).
The earlier date is preferred here, even though it would mean that the children were entered out of birth order. If Samuel really was born in 1655, then there would be an unexplained gap in the list of children of about five years, from about 1643 to 1648, and he would be marrying at age eighteen. Neither of these circumstances is impossible, but a birth year for Samuel of 1645 is more likely. Reference to the original would settle this matter.
In 1977 Benjamin Parker Richardson Jr. entered a caveat against the identification of Edward Adams as the husband of Lydia Penniman, since the will of her father does not name her at all and the will of her mother merely calls her Lydia Adams without naming her husband, and an alternate claim that the wife of Edward Adams was a Lydia Rockwood or Rockett had been made by Abner Morse. We do know from the mother's will that Lydia did marry an Adams, and a search of Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700 reveals no other Adams this early with wife Lydia. The only evidence in favor of the Rockwood identification is the choice by two of the children of Nicholas Rockwood of Edward Adams as their guardian. This could happen for other reasons than an Adams-Rockwood marriage, and so Edward Adams is retained as the husband of Lydia Penniman.

BIBLIOGRAPHY: Clifford L. Stott has discovered the origin of James Penniman in Chipping Ongar, Essex, and has also provided evidence and careful arguments for the identity of the spouses of James Penniman's daughters.

Ezekiel Sanford was baptized at Much Hadham, Herts, England on 20 Feb 1586-86 as the eldest son of Thomas and Mary Sanford. He married Rose Warner in Hatfield. The town, modernly called Hatfield Broad Oak, is about six miles southeast of Much Hadham, over the county line into the shire of Essex. The records of baptisms, marriages and burials in this parish have been lost, prior to 1662, depriving all of the exact date of his marriage and the baptisms of his two eldest sons, Thomas and John, born between 1607 and 1612. It is unknown what his trade or occupation was.

Ezekiel & Rose had 10 Children

Records under Peter Charles Schell

No birth record for Peter Charles Schell has been found. We have all reason to believe that he was born in Joehlingen, Karlsruhe, Baden, Germany and based on his (Naturalized Nov. 14, 1848 (Cert# 1-264 USCC Boston) see Media and Sources for copy) he was born Feb. 27, 1825.

1840 Federal Census - Not Found to Date

1850 Federal Census

Option 1 - Massachusetts, Norfork, Roxbury (Aug.12)(Roll 330 pp93):
Peter (25) baker lives in Roxbury with Henry Whitney (35) baker and his wife and Fredrick Rain also 25 and a baker.

This is the only listing that has Peter at the right age. It also has him living with a baker that is logical since he becomes a baker later on but Catharine (Brehm) Schell his wife, Josephine, and Mary should also be with him. This leaves two options. One this is not Peter and he is somewhere else or his wife and children are somewhere else.

Option 2 -

1860 Federal Census

Federal Census-1870 - Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, USA

Peter was listed as "no occupation" ( I suspect this entry is wrong. Peter was still a baker.( see 1880 entry) ) at age 44 yrs. old and lived with his wife Catherine age 40 years old ( age recorded wrong) " keeping house" , his children, Josephine age 21 yrs. old "shop keeper", Mary 19 yrs.old " no occupation" ," Heny" (Catherine) age 17 yrs old " no occupation" and Peter age 7 yrs. old "at home".

Federal Census - 1880 - Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, USA

Peter is listed as baker at 54 yrs.old. He lives with his wife Catherine age 58 yrs. old and his children, Mary age 29 yrs. old "no occupation" and his son Peter age 17 yrs. old and listed as a baker. Also living with them was Lannia Beck age 23 yrs. old " stone clerk". Peter and family was still living above store at 1222 Washington St, Boston. ( records both Peter & Catherine born in Baden, Germany )

Federal Census - 1890 - Not available - Massachusetts records were destroyed in a fire.

Death - June 4, 1900 - Before the Census was taken

1872 - Boston, Massachusetts

Peter is first listed in 1872 ( Age 47) as a baker at 1068 Washington Street.
In 1875 as baker at 1226 Washington Street. His residence was 1224 Washington St.
In 1886 the bakery has enlarged to 1226-1354 Washington Street with residence at 1354 Washington Street (probably over bakery).

1886-1900 - Boston, Massachusetts

Son is listed with Peter in 1886 and each year until his death in 1900.
Peter Jr dies in 1901 and Carl Schuler( unidentified Schuler--not a William H. issue) is listed a baker.
Anna T (Burkhardt) Schell) ,widow of Peter Jr, apparently ran the bakery with Peter Sr's widow until 1910. Anna lived at 21 Homes Ave. Dorchester.

List in 1895 St Trinity Church of Boston Census along with son Peter and John M Schell (father?)

NOTE: Andries in the oldest known Van Valkenburg, probably the first to settle in Millen. He was a tailor. He was the paternal grandfather of Lambert Van Valkenburg who emigrated to New Amsterdam.

NOTE: on 24 Mar 1653, accompanied by his sister leyn (Cathalina) and her two daughters, Maria and Griet, with his other sister Lysen (Elisabeth), appeared before the aldermen of Millen and the sisters gave Andries a quit claim to their share of the inheritance from their parents.
(NAVVF Web Site)

FAMILY SEARCH NOTES: Andries has two different AFN Number and both are listed in the Facts he also has two different wives in the Familysearch records. 1) Catharina Roscamps married either 1630 and 1932 and she is either born in 1609 or 1611. (My guess is that someone has a marriage report that gives her age and if she is married in 1630 she was born in 1609 and vice versa) No other infomation that I could find on Familysearch. (She is born as early as Abt 1607 and as late as 1611 in FS Records) I could not find any parents or other information about Catharina. 2) Rachel Van Valkenburch in 1628. (I have problems with this record becuase it is wasy to close to "Van Valkenburgh" and also it only appear once in the records but I have listed it here to be complete. She has no AFN issued that I could find)

48 Biographical Summary

Stephen Hopkins was from Hampshire, England. He married his first wife, Mary, and in the parish of Hursley, Hampshire; he and wife Mary had their children Elizabeth, Constance, and Giles all baptized there. It has long been claimed that the Hopkins family was from Wortley, Gloucester, but this was disproven in 1998. For more information on the true English origins of Stephen Hopkins, see the "Published Research" section at the bottom of this page.

Stephen Hopkins went with the ship Sea Venture on a voyage to Jamestown, Virginia in 1609 as a minister's clerk, but the ship wrecked in the "Isle of Devils" in the Bermudas. Stranded on an island for ten months, the passengers and crew survived on turtles, birds, and wild pigs. Six months into the castaway, Stephen Hopkins and several others organized a mutiny against the current governor. The mutiny was discovered and Stephen was sentenced to death. However, he pleaded with sorrow and tears. "So penitent he was, and made so much moan, alleging the ruin of his wife and children in this his trespass, as it wrought in the hearts of all the better sorts of the company". He managed to get his sentence commuted.

Eventually the castaways built a small ship and sailed themselves to Jamestown. How long Stephen remained in Jamestown is not known. However, while he was gone, his wife Mary died. She was buried in Hursley on 9 May 1613, and left behind a probate estate which mentions her children Elizabeth, Constance and Giles.

Stephen was back in England by 1617, when he married Elizabeth Fisher, but apparently had every intention of bringing his family back to Virginia. Their first child, Damaris, was born about 1618. In 1620, Stephen Hopkins brought his wife, and children Constance, Giles, and Damaris on the Mayflower (child Elizabeth apparently had died). Stephen was a fairly active member of the Pilgrims shortly after arrival, perhaps a result of his being one of the few individuals who had been to Virginia previously. He was a part of all the early exploring missions, and was used almost as an "expert" on Native Americans for the first few contacts. While out exploring, Stephen recognized and identified an Indian deer trap. And when Samoset walked into Plymouth and welcomed the English, he was housed in Stephen Hopkins' house for the night. Stephen was also sent on several of the ambassadorial missions to meet with the various Indian groups in the region.

Stephen was an assistant to the governor through 1636, and volunteered for the Pequot War of 1637 but was never called to serve. By the late 1630s, however, Stephen began to occasionally run afoul of the Plymouth authorities, as he apparently opened up a shop and served alcohol. In 1636 he got into a fight with John Tisdale and seriously wounded him. In 1637, he was fined for allowing drinking and shuffleboard playing on Sunday. Early the next year he was fined for allowing people to drink excessively in his house: guest William Reynolds was fined, but the others were acquitted. In 1638 he was twice fined for selling beer at twice the actual value, and in 1639 he was fined for selling a looking glass for twice what it would cost if bought in the Bay Colony. Also in 1638, Stephen Hopkins' maidservant got pregnant from Arthur Peach, who was subsequently executed for murdering an Indian. The Plymouth Court ruled he was financially responsible for her and her child for the next two years (the amount remaining on her term of service). Stephen, in contempt of court, threw Dorothy out of his household and refused to provide for her, so the court committed him to custody. John Holmes stepped in and purchased Dorothy's remaining two years of service from him: agreeing to support her and child.

Stephen died in 1644, and made out a will, asking to be buried near his wife, and naming his surviving children.
