About Wendel Santmann Bauman

The Genealogical Record of Reverend Hans Herr written in 1908 by Theodore W Herr, Genealogist, after much research has a list of the children of Rev. Hans Herr. Anna is not included. I wonder if Anna, wife of Wendel Bauman was actually the daughter of one of his brothers rather than Rev. Herr, which is claimed in the profile below. (J. Wile)

Wendel Santmann Bauman was born abt 1665 in Thun, Canton, Bern, Switzerland. He was the son of Hans Rudolf John Dandiker Bauman (1636-1690) and Anna Santmann Bauman (1635-1682). "WENDEL BAUMANN, the original settler of this family, came to Pennsylvania at a very early date. He was born in Switzerland about the year 1665. When about 17 years of age he, in company with his parents, moved to Holland, where, they had the promise of protection from the persecuting parties of Southern and Central Europe, by William, Prince of Orange, afterwards King William III of England.

It was not until Sept. 29, 1709, that the Mennonites as a body in and around Germantown were granted the rights of naturalization, and thus given equal civil rights with their English neighbors.

Wendel Baumann, as the name of this settler is properly written, when he took up his original tract of land, consisted of 530 acres, including the 6 per cent. for road allowance. **The tract forms part of the Present Village of Lampeter and consisted in 1886 of 3 farms and 8 town lots, etc. In 1717 he took up another piece of land of 300 acres plus 6 per cent. for road allowance, along Big Beaver Creek, about 3 miles southeast of his mansion farm. This second tract was divided into 2 farms which he sold in his lifetime to John and Casper Bauman.

"Wendel Baumann, "the original settler of this family, came to Pennsylvania at a very early date. He was born in Switzerland about the year 1681. When about seventeen years of age, he in company with his parents, moved to Holland where they had the promise of protection from the persecuting parties of southern and central Europe, by William Prince of Orange, afterwards William III of England. Here the old progenitor lived until the beginning of the seventeenth (18th!) century, when he set his face for America. He landed safely at Philadelphia but the date of the landing (1704) is not known. We find that in 1709 a number of families moved westward from Philadelphia, seeking a tract of land where they might settle in one vicinity. The choice of their location was on a tract situated north of Pequea Creek, extending to the Conestogo (Their settlement was Strasburg Tp., Chester Co., now West Lampeter Tp., Lancaster Co.) containing ten thousand acres of land. The warrant for this was recorded and the land surveyed to them on October 23rd, 1710. Among these settlers we find the name of Wendel Baumann. All efforts made to obtain the date of his death or to whom he was married proved fruitless. So much, however, has been obtained that he had a family of seven sons and one daughter. The names of the sons were Christian, Peter, John, Jacob, Michael, Benjamin, Joseph, and Magdalena, married to Jacob Groh, father of the late Abraham Groh, and grandfather of John Groh of Hespeler, Ontario."

" Wendel Bauman was the first of his family to come to America. He was born at Thun, Canton Bern, Switzerland, in 1681 and when about seventeen sailed down the Rhine from Switzerland to Holland, escaping religious persecution. In 1707 Wendel joined a group of Mennonites who sailed on the ship "Mary Hope" which left Gravesend, England in June 1707. Wendell was accompanied by his wife Anne. He settled on Pequea Creek, just four miles southeast of the present city of Lancaster, in what is now West Lampeter township, Lancaster county. John Bauman, Wendel's brother, arrived in the Pequea colony in 1712 and settled on a patent of 1000 acres. Strassburg, PA is located on John's tract while the village of Lampeter is located on Wendel's land. Wendel came to America under the leadership of Rev. Hans Herr, a Swiss Mennonite minister. Bowman and eight other Mennonites, having arrived in October on the ship "Mary Hope" left Gravesend, England in June via Rotterdam, Holland, having sailed up the Rhine from Switerland. The nine heads of families arranged with William Penn's agents and the Provincial surveyor for 10,000 acres of land on Pequea Creek in the wilderness, 60 miles west of Philadelphia. The land is now in Lancaster County and is four miles southeast of the present site of the city of Lancaster. The village of Lampeter is now located on Wendell's land." He was in Pennsylvania by 1707, when he was living in Germantown. He patented 250 acres in Strasburg in present day Lancaster county, PA on 12 Jan 1716, which he bought in 1710. Mennonites (as well as Amish and Hutterites) are direct descendants of the Anabaptist movement. Anabaptists are Christians of the Radical Reformation of 16th-century Europe , considered Protestant by some, although some consider Anabaptism to be a distinct movement from Protestantism. The name «i»Anabaptist«/i» is derived from the Greek term «i»anabaptista«/i», or "one who baptizes over again." This name was given them by their enemies in reference to the practice of "re-baptizing" converts who "already had been baptized" (or sprinkled) as infants.«u»[5]«/u» Anabaptists required that baptismal candidates be able to make their own confessions of faith and so rejected baptism of infants. The early members of this movement abhorred the name "Anabaptist", claiming that since infant baptism was unscriptural and null and void, the baptizing of believers was not a "re-baptism" but in fact the first baptism for them.

Wendel Santmann Bauman was born abt 1665 in Thun, Canton, Bern, Switzerland. He was the son of Hans Rudolf John Dandiker Bauman (1636-1690) and Anna Santmann Bauman (1635-1682).

Letters of Administration for his estate were granted by the Registrar of Wills to Benjamin Baumann, dated September 6, 1735; bond given in 300(pounds); his bail are Jacob Baumann Martin Bear. An inventory was filed of his real and personal estate. Administrator's account is found on file. A true and compared copy of original inventory, as the same is on file in the Registrar's Office (Lancaster County). "A Inventory made the 7th day of April, 1735, for the Plantation of Wendel Bauman, deceased, and of all other goods as followeth. His oldest known son, Christian (born August 13, 1724), was then only eleven years old. At a Mennonite conference of the entire Pennsylvania church, held in 1725, two of the five preachers present from Conestoga, as the Pequea settlement was then called, Martin Baer and Johannes Bauman, names that correspond respectively, with one of the bondsmen and one of the valuators of the estate. Ulrich Breckbiel, also is known to have been a preacher at that time.

Wendel was buried a little south of his old home in the Hans Tschantz graveyard, which is located south of Lampeter and about 8 miles southwest of the City of Lancaster, Pa. His grave has no tombstone. This dilapidated ancient burying ground, set aside by Preacher Tschantz from his farm releasing all personal claim thereto in 1740, was for the use of the neighbors. It lies between two Mennonite meeting houses called Willow Street (or Brick and Strasburg, where some of the descendants of the pioneers still worship. One of their ministers, Frank M. Herr, is a descendant of Hans Herr, the bishop of this settlement and after whom it is named. Some of the early settlers including Jacob Miller, Hans Mylin and the consort of Martin Mylin, are all interred here. The earliest grave with any record on its marker is L. G. 1741. http://www.horseshoe.cc/pennadutch/families/bowman/bowman.htm#bfh* Reference: Find A Grave Memorial - SmartCopy: Aug 31 2021, 21:50:51 UTC
