There were several German principalities involved, including many of the Hesse regions such as Hesse-Hanau and Hesse-Kassel. The numbers from the Hesse regions are why they were nicknamed "Hessians", although there were other German states involved. The Wiki article gives at least some of those states. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hessian_(soldiers)
