  • Notes 
    • Also called Wynant Bauman, Bowman. Some accounts treat Wendel and Wynant as separate individuals, but there is evidence to suggest that they were the same person. If they were not, they were probably brothers, and the Anna who married Jacob Weber/Weaver was likely a daughter of one or the other of them.

      A thorough overview of what is known about Wendel/Wynant/Wynand Bauman, with extensive references, can be found here at Janet and Robert Wolfe Genealogy.

      "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 [sic] century, when he set his face for America. He landed safely at Philadelphia, but date of landing 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." [Ezra E. Eby, citation details below]

      Said to have come to America under the leadership of Rev. Hans Herr, a Swiss Mennonite minister.
