  immigrant to Chestnut Hill

Immigrant. Arrived on 20 Nov 1741 at Philadelphia on the Europa, age 35. He lived in Northampton Co, Pa, later Monroe Co. Religion: Lutheran.


The Palantine Immigrant, Vol. 6, No. 2, pg. 93: "CHRISTMAN, Heinrich; wife Anna Maria -- Arr. 1741, lived in Northampton Co., Pa, later Monroe Co. Religion Lutheran. Children: Elisabeth md. Weyand; Christopher b. 1741; Catharine; Magdalena; Johanna Sophia m. BORGER; Henry md KLEINTOP. D-23"

His will was executed 9/3/1768 Chestnut Hill, no probate date given, listing children: Christopher, Elizabeth (Wey), Catherine, Magdalen, Margaret, Sophia, and Henry. (Listed in "Will Abstract of Northampton Co., Pa 1752-1802" compiled by John Eyerman; Closson Press, Apollo Pa Feb 1982).

10 Nov 1757: "H'y Creistman, 50 acres" in Northampton Co., in ["Provincial Papers: Warrantees of Land in the Several Counties of the State of Pennsylvania, 1730-1898" in Pennsylvania Archives, 3rd Series, 1897, Vol. XXVI] (although it is plausible that this is his son Henry...)

In ["Eighteenth Century Emigrants from Northern Alsace to America" by ANnette Kunselman Burgert, Picton Press, Camden Maine, 1992, pg. 386] she gives Jordan Lurtheran Church Records, in South Whitehall Twp., Lehigh Co., "Catharina Barbara Obel was sponsor in 1744 for children of Henrich Christmann and Abraham Knerr [q.v.]" (Was this him? Or was it Heinrich from Quirnbach?)
