bullet Johann Georg WEBBER died in 1776 in South Carolina, USA. He was born @1712 in possibly Berschweiler, Germany. Johann Georg was our emigrant ancestor on the Weber side, emigrating from what was probably Berschweiler, Germany with his wife Katharina and 5 surviving children Johann Georg II, Friedrich, Susanna, Barbara and Heinrich in July, 1764 after meeting the previous fall with Johann Heinrich von Stumpel, acting as the King's representative, and being seduced by his promises of free land in a New World. Along with about 500 others, the family made their way to Bingen and then headed down the Rhine on boats to Rotterdam, a journey which took about two weeks since each day there were dozens of stops at toll stations and customs stations in the river. From Rotterdam, they boarded a ship to London.

On arrival in London in August 1764, von Stumpel and their possessions were nowhere to be seen and the shipmasters refused to take the "poor Palatines" any further, having only been partially paid to transport them. The Germans ended up in Whitechapel Fields, with no shelter, food or money. Luckily for them, a German minister named Reverend Wachsel became aware of their plight and, with his parishioners, brought tents and food for them. After pleading to the authorities for help through a letter published in the London Chronicle on August 31, 1764, a committee was established to determine the fate of the Palatines. In the end, with His Majesty the King's permission, it was decided that they should be taken to South Carolina rather than Nova Scotia.

The Weber family and the others, who now numbered only 350, boarded the Dragon and the Union and headed for Charlestown, South Carolina the second week of -October. They would arrive nine weeks and 40 more deaths later on December 14 and 16, 1764. It would be many more months before Johann Georg would be granted land, 350 acres in District 96 in the rugged South Carolina backlands, near to Cuffytown Creek where a lot was granted to his son, Johann George II and his family. It was not mentioned to the new settlers that there had been previous problems with the Cherokee Indians in the area, and that they would provide a buffer between them and the plantations along the coast.

It took two weeks of riding to reach Ninety-Six from Charlestown. An advance party had been sent to build a hut at Cuffytown Creek for the families to stay in through the rest of the winter before they could start building their houses and clearing their land in the spring. Each family was allocated ten pounds in gold to help build a house, they got tools and seeds, and according to the number of people in each family it was allocated certain amounts of dried goods and livestock.

Life in Ninety-Six was hard and lawless. It was not a pleasant place to be. Then, the Civil War started.

Johann Georg is said to have died in 1776, aged 64. At this time the civil war was on and his family had been torn apart. His sons had been active on the Loyalist side, and both of his daughters had married into the Rebel side. Heinrich had disappeared, gone to the Indian Nation it was said, Friedrich was blind and Georg was in hiding.

It was a sad ending to the future that had been anticipated.

(The book"Blood Traitors" by Marq de Villiers and Sheila Hirtle was used to write the above biography, and is a must-read for descendants of this and other Loyalist families from South Carolina.)

He was married to Catarina in possibly Berschweiler, Germany. Children were: Johann Georg II WEBBER, Frederick WEBBER, Susanna WEBBER, Barbara WEBBER, Heinrich WEBBER.


bullet Johann Georg II WEBBER was born on 18 Oct 1741 in Germany. He died prob. btwn 1811-1820 in Nova Scotia. Johann Georg Weber (known as George Webber in North America, sometimes recorded as Weaver) was, per family tradition, born 18 Oct 1741 in Germany, but on the January 1765 passenger lists to South Carolina, he is given as age 25 years, making his date of birth 1739. He was the eldest son of Johann George Weber (born around 1712) and Catarina ?? (born around 1718), who also emigrated to South Carolina with George's surviving siblings (Frederick @20 years old, Susanna @19 years old, Barbara @16 years old and Heinrich @11 years old).

He married (1) Barbara ?? in Germany, and she came to South Carolina with him, being age 23 years in December 1764. He married (2) Elizabeth ??. On Capt. William Shaw's 2 June 1784 muster list of Loyalist settlers at Ship Harbour, the wife of John George Webber is given as Elizabeth. She lived until after 1800 and her name appears on a land deed dated 1 Aug 1800.

In 1763, Johann Heinrich Christian von Stumpell, a Hanoverian officer in the Prussian army, began negotiating with the British government for a grant of land in Nova Scotia on which to settle Protestant, primarily German, immigrants. In the summer of 1764, he began to recruit families in the Rheinland to settle on this land, yet to be obtained from the British Crown. Some 400 German families, including the Johann George Weber family, arrived in London expecting to move on to Nova Scotia.

Von Stumpell, having taken from these families their passage money and valuables "for protection," then absconded, leaving the Germans penniless on the docks of London. The British Crown, on hearing of their plight, suggested, reflecting a shift on colonial policy, that they be given land in South Carolina instead of Nova Scotia, and a bounty was paid for their passage there.

The Webber family arrived in Charleston, South Carolina on 16 December 1764, probably on the Union, and they took the oath of allegiance on 26 February 1765 at Charleston.

On 23 Aug 1765 George Webber Jr. was granted 200 acres of land (the allotment for a man with wife and one child over age 2 years) on Cuffytown Creek, near his father's 350-acre grant in District 96, the rugged South Carolina backlands.

The younger Webber couple are said to have had twelve children, of whom only six survived to accompany the family to Nova Scotia.

During the Revolutionary War, the younger George Webber and his elder sons served in Capt. Thomas Pearson's Regiment of the Little River Militia, 96 Brigade, in the same company as Lawrence Marks, later to be another Ship Harbour Loyalist settler.

The Webber family withdrew from District 96 to Charleston with the British forces in the summer of 1781 and evacuated with the British from Charleston to Halifax in late 1782, arriving at Halifax on the Royal Navy troopship Argo on 21 Nov 1782.

The Webber family spent the winter of 1782-83 at Halifax in tents, and moved out with other Loyalist and military settlers to Ship Harbour in May 1783. As a part of the ad hoc Associated Loyalists of South Carolina, he was given former permission in June 1783 by the governor of Nova Scotia to settle at Ship Harbour. He was on a 21 Aug 1783 list of settlers at Ship Harbour who were to be victualled over the winter from government stocks. Charles Morris surveyed lots at Ship Harbour for this group on 13 March 1784, in which George Webber was assigned Lot #8, some 200 acres on the western side of Ship Harbour, and he received title to this land as a part of a grant made to Capt. Thomas Green. The Webber family was included on Capt. William Shaw's 2 June 1784 muster list of Loyalist refugees then at Ship Harbour.

In July 1786, he filed a claim to the Loyalist Claims Commission for L471 in compensation for property left behind in South Carolina. Of this sum, L130 was allowed by the commission, but he was actually paid only L52 in compensation.

The schooner Friendship of Ship Harbour, sailing under "Capt. Weaver", was reported cleared to leave Halifax on 24 Nov 1789, an indication of some of George Webber's economic activity at Ship Harbour.

On 5 Oct 1790, he purchased 200 acres of land on the east side of Ship Harbour, which he sold to Thomas Merryweather on 1 Aug 1800. He purchased on 30 Aug 1811 from Thomas Stoddard the 2,000-acre grant at Clam Bay that had been made on 13 July 1765 to Duncan, Robert Jr. and Robert Campbell, and which had been share-cropped by John Frederick Rupert until its sale on 8 Aug 1799 to Thomas Stoddard. The Campbell title to this land eventually proved to be defective, however, and so George Webber had to ask the Crown to grant him 500 acres of the same land he thought he had purchased. This grant was given him, and this marked the permanent establishment of the Webber family at Clam Bay on the farmstead known as "Birch Hill".

George Webber's death was not recorded in comtemporary records, and most likely occurred at Clam Bay in the second decade of the 19th century. He was not included on Daniel Sutherland's Jan 1820 list of inhabitants of Clam Harbour, nor enumerated in the 1827 census.

bullet Johann Georg III WEBBER was born on 11 Aug 1761 in Germany. He died on 31 Jan 1860 in Ship Harbour, NS. He came to South Carolina with his parents in Dec. 1764, probably on the Union, and on 31 January 1765 a claim was made by the ship's captain for his transatlantic passage, listing him as three years old. During the American Revolution he served with his father in Capt. Thomas Pearson's Regiment of the Little River Militia, Ninety Six Brigade, and as a Loyalist refugee he removed to Nova Scotia from Charleston in November 1782. He resettled with his parents at Ship Harbour in the summer of 1783 and on 2 June 1784 was on the list of Loyalist refugees then at Ship Harbour as a child over ten years old. He m.

On 28 Aug. 1790 he purchased for £10 from George and Sarah DeBlois of Halifax a tract of land on the eastern side of Ship Harbour opposite Indian Point and sold this land to his father on 5 Oct. 1790. He was granted 250 acres of land at Clam Bay as a result of a petition dated 9 April 1818, in which he noted he was his father's eldest son and then was married with 12 children. He signed this petition "J. G. Webber," indicating some literacy. He is included on Daniel Sutherland's Jan. 1820 list of Clam Harbour residents as heading a family of 14 persons. His family was not enumerated in the 1827 census but he was enumerated in 1838 at Clam Harbour as heading a family of himself, with five females and two males over age 14 (one of which could have been his wife), and one female between age 6 and 14 years old.
