EARLY GERMAN SETTLERS OF SOUTH CAROLINA


INTRODUCTION

Between the years 1730 and 1766 the Colonial government of South Carolina actively encouraged immigration of foreign Protestants to the Province. Appreciable numbers of immigrants from Germany began to arrive in the 1740s. The year 1752 represented the peak of the migration with about 1800 German settlers who arrived on several ships in the fall of that year. Saxe-Gotha, Amelia, Salkehatchie, and the fork of the Broad and Saluda (Dutch Fork) became predominantly German settlements. The Dutch Fork was the most densely settled, becoming home to 483 settler families by 1760, almost all of whom were of German origin (E. B. Hallman, “Early Settlers in the Carolina Dutch Fork 1744-1760”, Master’s Thesis, Wofford College). It has been estimated that by the year 1765 there were 7500-8000 Germans and German-Swiss who had come to the province of South Carolina (R. L. Meriwether, “Expansion of South Carolina, 1730-1765”).

The church records of German towns and villages are the main source of emigration information. These records are available to the public on microfilm. Hannelore Enderle is a native of the Reutlingen area of the German state of Baden-Württemberg, identified most of the entries in this list using the resources of the Hauptstaatsarchiv in Stuttgart and the Generallandesarchiv in Karlsruhe. Many of the emigrants in the following list have not been identified in previous publications. Printed publications that have been helpful in compiling this list are cited at the end of this publication.

HOW TO USE THIS LIST

LINE ONE of each entry contains the name of the emigrant (individual or head of the family), followed by actual or estimated date of emigration, then followed by town of origin and zip code.

GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS. The name and location of each emigrant is followed by a summary of information taken from the German Church record. Information includes birth and marriage dates, when available. Names of children are listed who were living at the time of emigration.

SC RECORDS are summarized from the Colonial record. This information begins a new line following the German Church record. In many cases it is possible to compare names and dates found in the German record with the SC immigration record given in the Colonial SC Journal of the Council. The name of the ship that the immigrant arrived on and names and ages of family members are given where possible. Acreage of their bounty grant and its location appear last.

He was later Pastor at St. Matthew’s Church, Orangeburg Co. and in that post was founder in 1787 of the Unio Ecclesiasticum or Union of Churches in SC. Wolffgang Friderich Augustus Daser came from a long line of Lutheran Ministers who were members of a distinguished Württemberg family.

Pfeilsticker, Württembergisches Dienerbuch, Vol. 2). Achatius Daser from about 1743 was also Bailiff in Schnait. This family may have been descendants of Ludwig Daser (1525-1581), a composer and Kapellmeister in Munich and in Stuttgart. The family included the learned Councilor Wilhelm Daser who died in 1639 and his grandson, Paul Achatius Daser (1626-1694), who was Prelate of several parishes.
