m. Venera Landolt (d. 1629); m. Judith Dandiker

-The baptismal record for Oswald and Judith’s son may suggest that the family had not yet become Anabaptists.

  • Benedict (Landolt) Baumann, b. 1627; m. Catharina Santmann; d. after 1678
  • Hans Rudolf (John) (Dandiker) Baumann, bap. 1636-12-26 [1xxxx.x3462]

Hans Rudolf (John) (Dandiker) Baumann, b. Durrenmoos?, bap. 1636-12-26, Hirzel; d. ca 1690, Rotterdam, Holland; m. Anna Santmann

-The family moved to Holland to enjoy religious freedom and the political protection of William, Prince of Orange—later King William III of England. This may suggest that Hans Rudolf became an Anabaptist (Mennonite) somewhere around the 1660s or 70s. It may also explain the movement westwards to Canton Bern by 1681, to Holland around 1688, and perhaps also the surname change from “Buman” to “Baumann” for Oswald’s children.

  • Wendel, b. ca 1670-81, Canton Bern [1xxxx.x3462.1]
  • Johannes, b. 1685, Thun, Canton Bern; Johannes anglicized his name to “John Bowman” and emigrated to Strasburg, PA, in Lancaster County.

II. Descendents of Wendel Santmann Baumann

(10 generations, b. 1698-1965)

Wendel Baumann, b. ca 1670-81, Canton Bern; d. 1735-04, Lampeter, Lancaster Co., PA (11111.13462.1); m. Ann[a] Sant[a]mann, b. ca 1675[9?]; d. 1735?, Lancaster Co., PA)

In the 1660s and ’70s, various Mennonites moved from Switzerland to the Palatinate in western Germany, due to a decrease in tolerance for the Anabaptist faith of the Mennonites in their ancestral home-country and a temporary increase in tolerance in parts of Germany. It is likely that Wendel and Ann met in the Palatinate in their teens in the 1690s. Later, some families travelled along the Rhine to Rotterdam, Holland (around 1688; immigration appears to have taken place in 1698), and Wendel and Ann probably married there and had their first three children. Wendel worked as a coppersmith.

Several Mennonites arranged with William Penn in London in early 1707 to purchase land across the ocean, and they voyaged from Rotterdam to North America on the barque Mary Hope, with Captain John Annis. They left Rotterdam in mid- to late-June of 1707 and then continued from Gravesend, Kent, England on June 29 and travelled via Harwich, intially alongside the Russian fleet (which they overtook), and Scotland’s Shetland/Orkney Islands. The total reached 94 passengers, including the Quaker preacher Thomas Chalkley. Seven weeks and four days from Shetland (and after considerable rough seas and resultant illnesses), they arrived in America probably in late September of 1707. They landed at Philadelphia, immigrated in 1709, and lived in nearby Germantown until 1710, when additional relatives joined them.

In the meantime (1709-10), Wendel and several others (from the Herr, Weber, and Kendig families) established the details of their new land: a tract of 10,000 acres some fifty miles to the west, near the Pequea Creek, several miles south-east of present-day Lancaster, PA, and partly overlapping with the later location of the village of Lampeter. Wendel had a farm on the north side of what is now called Penn Grant Road and ran a mill on the Pequea Creek, just to the south. The 1712 farm was located at what is now 873 E. Penn Grant Road, but the house (and perhaps the other buildings) were razed in 1874. Wendel’s son Christian also settled on 444 acres of this land around 1718-20 and patented it in 1730. This area is in what was then Chester County and is now West Lampeter Township, in Lancaster County, between Willow Street and Strasburg. Many of these earliest settlers (the first whites in the area) are buried at the Tschantz Graveyard (originally on the corner of a farm), on the west side of Pequea Lane, just south of Penn Grant Road. Willow Street (“Brick”) Mennonite Church and Strasburg Mennonite Church are also both nearby, as is the 1719 “Hans Herr” House—the oldest from that era, which was built by Bishop Hans Herr’s (1639-1725) son Christian (1680-1749), but Hans and his wife, Elizabeth Kendig Herr (1639-1730), did also live there and regularly held church services in its small meeting-house room. The house is preserved as a museum, along with a number of later buildings. Christian Herr and his wife Anna’s daughter Maria (1702-56) married a Brubacher ancestor of mine, Abraham Brubaker (1695-1753), so I am also a descendant of Hans Herr. Herr’s line has been traced to the Schwabish Knight Hugo, the Herr or Lord of Bilried (ca 1009).

  • Barbara, b. 1726-12-29

Starting in 1717 and for the next several decades, some Mennonites began to relocate to the north-east of Lancaster, such as to Graff’s Thal (Groffdale), Weber’s Thal (Weaverland, near Martindale), and Muddy Creek (just south of present-day Bowmansville). Another prominent Mennonite name in those parts was Good (originally “Guth”). Around 1740, Jacob Baumann went even further afield. He befriended an Indian and established in 1747 a property several miles south-west of his friend’s, in the Allegheny Valley. A mile or two west of Jacob’s property, his brother Christian established a farm in 1748 (including a log cabin, built in 1749) and an initial nearby grist mill (in Alleghenyville) and in 1777 a second mill, several miles to the south. Christian (who was also a minister and a farmer) and his son Christian (b. 1753) are both buried at Allegheny Mennonite Cemetery, which is just east of Alleghenyville (marked “CB 1790” and “CBM 1807” – the “M” presumably for “miller”). The next child, Wendel (b. 1758; my ancestor) and his first and second wives (Maria Huber and ‘Stiefmutter’ Elizabeth, “ED”) are also buried there, and Wendel’s family lived in his father’s 1749 log cabin. His younger brother, Joseph (a preacher, b. 1766) established in 1801 yet another mill, five miles to the east. These Baumanns/Bowmans lived and worked just inside present-day Berks County. However, nearby Bowmansville is just inside Lancaster County.

One thought on “Genealogy

  1. thank you for this. I think you are Elaine Brubacher Bowman’s son, right? She is my 1st cousin — I was born Emma Buehler, daughter of Sarah Brubacher who was a sister to Tobias.
    It is good to see this lineage on the net. Thanks again. Emma
