Loyal Judith, 3 Sept 1742 Ship’s Lists: Analysis of Spellings

For those unfamiliar with Strassburger-Hincke's designation of the lists for foreign passengers arriving in Pennsylvania from 1727 through 1777, each ship is given a number from the date of its docking in Philadelphia and three lists were made for each:

The  "B" & "C", or oath lists, would not necessarily be in the same order as the "A" list, nor would necessarily contain the same persons. (Passengers may have been too ill to leave the ship.)  The Loyal Judith's voyage of 1742 is the 93rd to have been transcribed by Strassburger, so it becomes "ship 93". The letter following "93" tells us to which specific lists we're referring.

These three lists of passengers arriving in Philadelphia on 2 Sept 1742 & taking the oath of alleigance have been arranged into a table for comparison of spellings of the names. The primary order is that given by Strassburger-Hinke in S-H 93A. This might be considered the most accurate of the lists because:

  1. The ship's crew, who compiled this list, were experienced with Germanic names & language to some extent from prior voyages.
  2. The crew would have spent several weeks with the passengers and needed to communicate with them.

In 1865, Israel Daniel Rupp published his "Thirty Thousand Names..", which remained the best source of these lists until Strassburger-Hincke's "Pennsylvania German Pioneers"" in 1934.  Rupp's version of the comparable list is reported to have been re-arranged & consolidated into one from the originals. (Another advantage of Strassburger-Hincke for descendants of passengers on this voyage is that one of Ralph Beaver Strassburger's ancestor was aboard, possibly implying the author took extra care with these lists.)

The reader will note that no women or children are listed; it doesn't mean none were aboard. In fact, at least one case of a listed passenger traveling with wife & daughters was found by Carl Boyer.

RT * – Double question mark, "??", indicates match uncertain.
Johannes Alen may have been taking the oath late & not a psaanger on the Loyal Judith.
"Johannes Rühl" appears twice on the Rupp list, only once (as "Jonnas Reel, 38", position 82) on Strassburger-Hinke.

Notes:
1. Some signers of the oath on this day may have been from other ships, but were delayed due to illness.
2. Some on list 93A may have taken & signed the oath on a later day.
