     Jones, 1985: "Palatine Families of New York": Johann Adam Walborn brought his wife, Anna Elizabetha, and six children to America under the protection of Queen Anne. Governor Robert Hunter of New York arranged passage for 2500 Germans to America in exchange for their work at the tar and pitch processing plants along Schoharie Creek and the Hudson River in New York. After two years of work the tar/pitch program was closed because it was never financially viable (due to the German's resistance to serfdom). Around 1723 the Walborn family travelled to the Tulpehocken Settlement (mostly Germans from the New York project) in Berks County, Pennsylvania. There the Walborns lived for generations mostly as farmers and carpenters.

Info from: The Walborn Family by Maxine Bennett, Published by Clifford Bennett 1984 - P. 11-15 N.1 Family legend tells us that the name WALBORN had its origin with the birth of a small child found in the woods in the fatherland many years ago. Thos rescuing the infant, not knowing its parentage, decided to give it a name connected with its discovery, so they gave it the name with meant Woods Born: WALDGEM BORNE, WALD BORNE, WALDBORN. The latter form appears on Baptismal records in Germany. The history of the Walborn Family is most interesting, to say the least, and to speak of the Walborns is to speak of the Batdorfs, for these two families have been closely related for more than two hundred and seventy five years. The original home of the Walborns was in Wiesbaden, Germany. Dr. Fritz Braun, well-known German genealogist, formerly of the Helmatstelle Pfalz, of Kaiserlautern, Germany, lists: "JOHAN ADAM WAL(L)BORN aus Wiesbaden, Hausmann auf dem Schutzenhof, ausgewandert mit FRAU ANNA ELISABETH, u. 6 Kindern 1690-1708. Sil: mit ANNA ELISABETH u. 6 Kindern in Schmidsdorf (Schoharie)." Sil" Simmendorf Register. Following their marriage, Hans was a tenant farmer, living in a section of the Rhine Valley known as the Palatinate, on land owned by Egydius Sartorius. Church records of the family were found in Wiesbach-Nassau, Germany, and three baptismal records from Wiesenbaden, Germany, were obtained by Herman Walborn of Saint Paris, Ohio, in 1969, which gives the baptismal records of two daughters of Hans Adam Walborn and wife Anna Elisabetha of Idar, Germany. No doubt Hans was discouraged with the meager living he could provide for his family as a tenant farmer. The people were tired and wary of the ravages and destruction of the European Wars, the bloody persecutions, and the dreadful sufferings of the Protestants. One can easily understand why they accepted Queen Anne's offer. They joined the many thousands who took advantage of Queen Anne's offer to transport families to america, with the intention of establishing a Colony in the present state of New York. In the summer of 1708, they traveled by boat down the Rhine to Rotterdam, Holland. The trip was a long and tedious one, due to the many stops made enroute, and required considerable time. Before they reached Rotterdam, most of their meager resources had been exhausted, and by the time they reached London most of them were destitute and entirely dependent upon the government for subsistence. Ten vessels were loaded with over three thousand Germans and among them were several families of our ancestors -- the Hans Adam Walborn family, the Peter Bardorf family, the Johann Peter Feg family and the Johannes Risch family. They left England the 25th of December, 1709, and after a six months'
tedious voyage reached New York in June, 1710. The voyage was longer than usual because of heavy storms. The crowed quarters, the foul air and insufficient food, made them easy prey of disease, and many died. Upon landing, the survivors were encamped in tents they had brought with them from England. Here they remained till late in autumn, when about fourteen hundred were moved one hundred miles up the Hudson River, to Livingston Manor. The Walborn, Batdorf, Feg and Risch families were among those settled at Livingston Manor. The were under indenture to serve Queen Anne as grateful subjects, to manufacture tar and raise hemp, in order to repay the expenses of their transportation and cost of subsistence. The experiment was a complete failure, and the Germans, being unjustly oppressed, became dissatisfied with their treatment and their situation. Our ancestors were among the one hundred and fifty families who, in order to escape the
certainty of famishing, left late in the autumn of 1712, for Schoharie Valley, about sixty miles north-west of Livingston Manor. They had no open road, no horses to carry of haul their luggage. They loaded their belongings on crude, roughly-built sleds and pulled them themselves, through a three-feet-deep snow, which greatly obstructed their progress. Their way was through an unbroken forest, and it took them three full weeks to reach their destination. They had been in Schoharie about ten years when, owing to some defect in their land titles, they were deprived of both their lands and their lands and the improvements they had made upon them. In the Spring of 1723, thirty-three families (including our ancestors) again packed their meager belongings and settled in Pennsylvania, in Tulpehocken, about fifteen miles west of Reading. The war record of the Walborns in America begins in New York when, in 1711 during the French and Indian Wars, Hans Adam Walborn volunteered for the Expedition against the French and served with General Nicholson at Montreal. On 26 July 1711, he was one of the Palatine Volunteers in the Annesbury and Queensbury Expedition against Canada. In 1717, John Adam Walborn had taken the Oath of Allegiance, and was a volunteer from Annsburg, in what was called the East Camp, located on the east side of the Hudson River about where the present site of the city of Germantown, Dutchess County, now stands. He fought with the English against the French at Montreal and also in the defense of Albany. In 1723, Johann (Hans) Adam Walborn and his family were living in southern Pennsylvania, in the Tulpehocken Valley Settlement along Swatara Creek. In 1741, he was again listed as one of those still living in the Tulpehocken Settlement. The exact date of his death, however, is not known. March 1992 IGI gives place of marriage as Mosbach, Gross Umstadt,l Starkenburg, Hesse-Darmstadt. Herman W. Walborn, comp. "Walborn (Walburn) genealogical history of America: descendants from the settlement of 1710, including data on allied families and other associated connections (St. Paris, OH: Walborn, c 1975)... says his name was Hans Adam Walborn and wife was "Anna Elisabetha Feg of Idar, Germany. Listed as a tenant farmer living in a section of the Rhine valley, known as the Palatinate on land of Egydius Sartroius. Listed as head, among the 30,000 German Refugees that arrived in New York in 1710. Served with General Nicholson at Montreal. On the list of Palatine Volunteers in the Annesburg, and Queensbury Expedition against Canada. Listed in New York State as parent of six children ... was still living in 1741 at the Tulpehocken Settlement." (Info from Mar 96:) Dr. Carmen J.

Destination: an unknown place .1 They resided at New Annsberg, Schoharie County, New York, between 1712 and 1722. Johann Adam and his wife Anna Elisabetha were listed with 6 children in 1716/1717 at Neu-Ansberg, NY (a German settlement in the Schoharie region). Still lived there in 1717; Christian Wilhelm (second son) was married there Gary Rolph Note Aug 2007: Neu-Ansberg was also called "Schmidsdorf, later called Smith's Town, where the railroad station at Schoharie now stands" - from Schoharie County NY GenWeb site (http://www.rootsweb.com/~nyschoha/simmen.html)
FindAGrave: "They moved about sixty miles northwest to Schoharie Valley to New Annsberg (sometimes called Schmidsdorf), having to pull their belongings on crude sleds through a forest and three feet of snow without horses or roadways. It took them three weeks to travel the sixty miles.".1,2 She and Johann Adam Walborn immigrated between 1722 and 1723 to Tulpehocken Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania; About 25 of these families moved through the woods in NY state to the upper reaches of the Susquehanna River, built rafts, and sailed downriver settling in Tulpehocken Twshp, Berks Co., PA. List contains: Wallborn, Hans Adam with wife Anna Elisabeth, 6 children. By 1723 was listed in Tulpenhocken Settlement, PA, and was on the Tulpehocken tax list of 1725. His two sons, Christian and Johann Hermann, are shown as owning pioneer homesteads in the Tulpehocken Valley on maps dated 1723.
FindAGrave: "After living in Schharie about ten years, 33 famiies of 150 people, including the Walborns and Batdorfs, had their land title taken away because of some land title diefect. In the spring of 1723, they cut a road to the headwatersof the Susquehana River and floated down the river on flatboats and canoes, driving their cattle along the banks. In Pennsyvania, at what is now Middletown, they turned up the Swatara Creek and landed at their destination in the western part of what is now Berks County and the eastern part of what is now Lebanon County. Indians guided their journey and were their neighbors. They settled along Swatara Creek, about fifteen miles west of Reading in Tulpehocken in southeast Pennsylvania, and were listed as being their eighteen years later in 1741.1 Anna Elisabeth Feg died between 1724 and 1750 at Tulpehocken, Berks County, Pennsylvania; "He died after 1741, probably in southern Pennsylvania in the Tulpehocken Valley settlement along Swatara Creek" Find a Grave, "Johann Adam Walborn."3,2

     P. 13-16 F.1 JOHANNES JACOB PETER BATDORF, with his wife Anna Maria Catharina, left their native Switzerland in search of a better life where they would no longer have to endure the terrors and horrors of the Religious persecutions. They lived for several years in Palatine, Germany, where their five children were born. In 1707-08 it was so cold in the Rhine Basin that their crops, fruit trees, grape vines and meadows were all killed by the frost. Rivers were ice bound and even the sea froze along the coasts. Louis XIV of France taxed unbearably, and southwest Germany was plundered time and again by the French and German robber Barons. This land knew no rest, having suffered wars and religious persecution of its people. The ravages of wars and the persecutions of the Protestants made them fearful, so during the summer of 1708, Professor Johannes Jacob Peter Bardorf, with his wife and five children, left their home in the small village of Badorf, near Stuttgart, Germany, and traveled the tedious trip by boat down the Rhine River to Rotterdam, Holland. From Rotterdam, they were transported by ship to England to await further transportation to America. Like the Hans Adam Walborn family with whom they had become acquainted, they joined the thousands who took advantage of Queen Anne's offer to transport families to America, with the intention of establishing a colony in present New York State. Their trip was a long and extremely hard one, and it was not without tragedy for the Batdorf family. Johannes Jacob Peter Batdorf, the father, died in London in 1709, and three of their children perished on the journey to America -- either on the ship, or shortly after they arrived at New York, NY., 10 June 1710, as we find only the widow Anna Catharina Batdorf, and a son and daughter survived the journey to the new land.1 Johannes Jacob Peter Batdorf was born in 1671 at Baden-Württemberg, Germany.1 He married Anna Maria Catharina Herber at Germany circa 1696.1 Johannes Jacob Peter Batdorf died in 1709 at London, Greater London County, England; or en route to America.1

Johannes Jacob Batdorf1

M, b. circa 1534, d. circa 1584
FatherJohannes Batdorf1 b. 1508
     Johannes Jacob Batdorf The Batdorf family has an interesting origin. It begins with the spelling BOTDORFFE, which in Switzerland is made from two words: BOT meaning a place to take a bath, or to bathe, and DORFE is Swiss for a village....which put together is said to have become the name of families, who in early times lived in a small village located upon a lake or stream of fine water, where possibly some summer resort was well known. In America, the name has various spellings, such as Badorf, Batdorf, Bottdorff, Badtorff, Battdorff, and Bottorff. The Batdorf Family has a long history of longevity. The Batdorf line from which we are descended, begins with the earliest known ancestor, JOHANNES JACOB BATDORF, a minister in Westphalia, Germany. No further information concerning Johannes Jacob has been documented but it is believed that he was born ca 1534 and died about 1584.1 He was born circa 1534 at Westphalia, Germany.1 He died circa 1584 at Westphalia, Germany.1

Philip Lorentz Hautz was born Sep 10, 1713 in Hassloch, Pfalz, Bavaria and died Oct 22, 1788 in Berks County, Pennsylvania at the age of 75.

He was baptized on Sep 11, 1715 and was christened Philip Alfonso Lorenzo De Hautz. His sponsor was Philip Lorentz Hautz, son of George Frederich Hautz.

He married Anna Eva Walborn about 1740 in Bethel Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of Christian Wilhelm Walborn and Catharina Elisabetha Batdorf. She was born in 1720 in Shoharie, Albany, New York and died on Oct 22, 1788 about the age of 68.

He was only two years old when his mother died, and was orphaned at ten.

Philip Lorentz Hautz emigrated on the Friendship, commanded by Henry Beech, which sailed from Rotterdam, Holland and Dover, England. The Friendship landed at the port of Philadelphia on Sep 20, 1738. He settled in Bethel Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania near his brother Johann Philip, and sister Juliana Fusser, who had arrived eight years earlier on the ship Thistle. They lived the rest of their lives there, not far over the Berks-Lebanon County line from Hamlin.

Philip Lorentz Hautz was a farmer, miller, and distiller. He owned land on what is now Frederickburg, Pennsylvania.

Berks County was formed in 1752 from Chester, Lancaster, and Philadelphia counties.

The farms of Lorentz Houtz were in Bethel Township in what is now Berks County. The following is the information on the Warrantee Map for Bethel Township, Berks County:

The 1754 tax list of Bethel Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania lists "Lorentz Haucks" as a resident. Also listed was John Adam Walborn, the brother of Philip Lorentz Hautz' wife Eva.

The 1759 the assessment list of Bethel Township listed Lorentz Hautz

The Berks County, Pennsylvania Grantee Index reflects the following entries:

"Date of Record: Dec 1, 1763; Grantee: Philip L. Houtz; Grantor: Thomas Penn Exr; Year of Deed 1755, Vol A3, page 290
Date of Record: Dec 1, 1763; Grantee: Philip L. Houtz; Grantor: Timothy Horsfield Exr; Location: Swatara Crk; Year of Deed 1762, Vol A3, page 293"

Phil. Lorentz Hautz, Bethel, appeared on the 1767 tax list for Berks County, Pennsylvania with 150 acres, 2 horses, 4 cattle, 3 sheep, and "tax 10."

He has been confused with a nephew of the same name, b. 1740, who was a soldier in the Revolutionary War in Captain John Stone's Sixth Company, Second Battalion, of the Lancaster County Militia, listed in the Eighth Class. (Pennsylvania Archives, Fifth Series, Volume VII, p. 180)
This nephew also appears on the Valley Forge rolls (number PA17430) as serving in Muhlenberg's Brigade, German Regiment.

Philip (b. 1713) qualifies as a patriot of the American Revolution because he paid a supply tax in Berks County in 1779 "for raising the supplies." He's listed in Bethel Township as owning 200 acress, 4 horses, 4 cattle, and taxed "3,200." (Pennsylvania Archives, Third Series, Vol. XVIII, p. 208) The DAR placed a flag at his grave. A member of the Sons of the American Revolution who claimed Philip Lorentz Hautz as his patriot ancestor for a supplemental membership was Larry Patrick Cornwell, 138085.

His will was written in German and dated May 17, 1787, at Bethel Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. It was probated on Dec 13, 1788. A copy of the English translation was filed with the will. The first page states, "Translation of sd Will of Philip Lorentz Hautz Decd. . ."
