   The Springer family claim to trace their descent from Pharamond (died 427 A.D.) who was the first King of France, and author of the famous Salic Law, which forbade the succession of females to the throne. He, in turn, according to legend, was the 37th generation from Antenor, King of the Cimbri, near the Black Sea, who issued from the Trojans.
   From Pharamond, the descent is traced through King Clodio (died 448 A.D.), Albro, Vanburtus (died 528 A.D.), Ansebert (died 510) Arnold, Bishop of Metz (later canonized), Pepin of Heristal (died 714 A.D.), Charles Martel, King of France, Louis I, Count, or Landgrave of Thuringia (died 1056 A.D.), Louis II Landgrave of Thuringia. This latter Louis, born 1042; died 1128. He was imprisoned for two years 1087-1089 in the castle of Giebichenstein, near Halle on the Saale, on suspicion of having murdered Frederick III, Palgrave of Nordmark, by Emperor Henry IV. Eventually he made his escape by an adventurous leap (spring) from the tall battlements of the castle into the water. He was unhurt, and was at once taken before the Emperor, who pardoned him, and in sport called him "The Springer." This is the origin of the family name. Louis the Springer's son, Christoph Louis I, became Count Springer of Waldenburg (born 1091; died 1120. He was the first of a line of Count Springers, which lasted from 1091 to the death of the last Count, Gottfried III, in 1399). A son of this latter, Johan Gottfried Springer, was the ancestor of the citizen line of Springers. One of his descendants, Christopher Springer, was married three times, the last time to Lady Beatea Jacobie Hendrickson, Lady Companion to Queen Hedwig Elenora, wife of Charles X, of Sweden, to which country he removed about 1650. Of his children by his third wife, two--Carl Christopher Springer (1658-1738) and Jacob Springer (1668-1731) emigrated to America. A son by his first marriage to Alma Dorothea Jacobie, Lorentz (or Lawrence) Springer, (1646-1741), also emigrated to America, and from him are descended the Canadian family of Springers. Lorentz' fourth son, Benjamin, had two sons, Benjamin and David. David Springer, born 1739, married Margarita Oliver, on 26 Oct. 1754, and was killed in 1777.

He was a naturalized Swede, although he was originally German. He was married three times, first to Alma Dorothea Jacobie, by whom he had a son, Lorentz; second to Henrietta Stulcenrauch, by whom he had a daughter, Christina, who lived in Riga, now in the Russian zone. The third wife was Beata Salina, the eldest daughter of Dr. Balzar Salinus, court physician to King Carl X.
