AND , Johannes Bentz
Footnote 4: Ship Loyal Judith, arrived Phila Sept. 25, 1732. From Rotterdam, last from Cowes, Robert Turpin, Master
Two Bentz's are found on this ship, and it is presumed by some researchers, but not proven or in any way substantiated beyond their precense on the same ship, that they were brothers. According to Rootsweb ships Lists , citing The Pennsyvlania Archives 2:17 , the original spelling of these names is PENS, Johannes. age.23 and PENTES, Mickell. age.27. OliveTree Geneology, presents The ship list, and oaths of allegiance of those on the Loyal Judith in which are shown in the ship Mickell Pents 27 and Johannes Pens 23 and in signed oaths of allegiance at the same source can be found Johannes Benz [who signed] and far above him Mich(1) (X) Pents or Michael (X) Pens who apparantly signed with an X. As the English scribes often spelled phoenetically, the signature of Johannes BENZ is far more revealing of the surname in the homeland than the variations given it by the scribes, while the surname as given by the english scribes is far more revealing of the German pronounciation of the name.
Footnote 1; Ship William is credited with carrying a George Jacob Bentz I can not find in the record by source1
Footnote 2: presented as George Bentz, Jacob Bentz, Joh. Ludwig Bentz by source1
Footnote 3: This Johan Philip Bens arrived 1738 [back up to his entry] , and the John Philip Pentz of York mentioned in the same paragraph and naturalized in 1765 may be the same man. In either case, the naturalized John Philip PENTZ mentioned confuses the identification of American born John Philip "Philip" BENTZ son of immigrant Johan Bentz . There are multiple deed entries for one or more Philip BENTZ's of York which I have gathered under OUR Philip Bentz for purposes of research..but which Philip Bentz of York they each actually belongs to is under research.
1. Unless otherwise noted, initial notation on
name and date of ship, and Bentz passenger are entries from
Bryan Bentz and credited by him to Jay Hammond, which I have
substantiated and expanded upon with the ship index , city of origin and
route, when found. Bryan maintains an extensive Bentz Site "Andreus
Bentz Descendants" primarily relevant to the [American
Immigrant of that line residing in Penna] .
