The Palatines escape to Holland, the help of the Queen and a new beginning in New York

Hanß Jacob Bößhaar, son of the late Haß Albrecht Bößhaar at Breitenbach, married, 20 Jan 1681, Anna Gertrudt, daughter of the late Hanß Laux Meyer, Court Gardener at Zweibrücken.  Hanß Jacob Bößhaar, citizen and cooper here, widower, married Christina, daughter of the late Samuel Maurer - citizen and linenweaver at Hornbach, 30 July 1693.

Jacob Boesshaar, a cooper from the town of Zweibrücken was an emigrant from the Dutchy of Zweibrücken in 1709 Hans Jacob Peeshoor, his wife and 6 children were in the 6th party sailing on the ship of Captain Johan Facit, 3 Jul 1709. In 1710, three large groups of Palatines sailed from London.  The Boeshaar family were sent to New York with the new Governor, Robert Hunter, courtesy of, Her Majesty  Queen.There were 3 000 Palatines on 10 ships that sailed for NY and approximately 470 died on the voyage or shortly after their arrival.

In NY, the Palatines were expected to work for the British authorities, producing naval stores [tar and pitch] for the navy in return for their passage to NY. They were also expected to act as a buffer between the French and Native Americans on the northern frontier and the English colonies to the south and east.  Things didn't go as well as hoped, for any of the parties involved in the plan.  Somewhere between 1721 and 1734, George Bashore joined a large group of Palatines going to Pennsylvania.

I think it has some elements of the family "bedtime" story related by Ida Wollam as told by Alfred Woolam.

Census - Sort by First Name I selected many families who often had their names confused and misspelled and transcribed their names from the Census index entries from 1790 through about 1850. Then I sorted them by first name. This way I could see how many family members named Jacob existed within any Census decade. I didn't include many Woolam or the "W" variations. Mostly Ollom/Ullom but the other's may be interesting if you have misplaced an ancestor.
