About Romanus Teller, Rev.
Romanus was a distinguished clergy man and author of religious books. Born in bavaria he was probably one of the Calvinists who was expelled fron that country and other states of Germany where Roman Catholicism was the established religion especially during the persecutions following the outbreak of the Thirty years War in 1618. The armorial bearings claimed for the family are those of teller of the House of Kempton in Bavaria. This crest was on the stained glass window donated by the family to the first church in Albany which was established in 1642.
