      This emigrants left their villages in southern Germany (Baden andWürttemberg) about 12 Jul 1717 enroute for Pennsylvania by way ofLondon. Starvation took the lives of several of the passengers(probably 50 people perished, most of them children) who had beenswindled by their captain who was retained in London.
