The Journey

From http://hergart.tripod.com/ban/id15.html

... Were it not for the St Blaise vital records of Ban de la Roche, the ship manifest of the Princess Augusta that sailed in 1736 may have looked like a document about individuals and not an entire region from Alsace. However, placing the manifest alongside the Ban de la Roche records, one sees that such a journey was not individual but collective. The people on the ship were not strangers to one another but a community making an exodus out of harm’s way.
The Ban families made their exodus along the Rhine which took them about three weeks until they reached the port of Rotterdam, Holland. Once settled, the elders went about securing a passenger ship that would first take them to Cowes, England where they would exchange their possessions even though they were handmade. With newly acquired English-made products, the families believed they would be spared of taxation in Pennsylvania as England decreed all foreign goods would be subject to an import tax.
With their belongings stowed among the cattle and freight merchandise, the passengers boarded the Augusta and patiently sailed for three long months through summer weather. The ship, while called Princess, was not a luxury liner. Some three hundred and thirty passengers along with fifty or so crew sailed across the Atlantic in the most dreadful of conditions. Only the strong survived. ...
A schedule or list was likewise annexed to the foregoing petition, containing the names of One hundred and sixteen foreigners. Which petition and papers annexed, are contained under consideration. All of these goods were condemned and sold and the moneys given to the use of the English Government.
Perhaps the pilgrims would take some comfort in knowing that while all their worldly possessions had been outright stolen from them and they were left without the clothes on their backs, that as luck would have it, they were not on board the ship that chartered them from Europe to Pennsylvania when it sank in 1738 : “German ship Princess Augusta, Captain Brook, carrying 350 German immigrants from Amsterdam to New York was wrecked on the northern tip of Sandy Point, Block Island. Previous to the disaster, 250 immigrants and some of the crew died from contaminated water. The ship was reported to be carrying a considerable amount of personal treasures belonging to the immigrants.”
