Notes for Peter Schildt Schild:
In Reply to: Parents of Johannes Casper (Sr) Shell posted by Rhonda Kay Chesnutt on November 23, 1998 at 19:19:07:

According to what I have found, it is Petro Schild born Abt. 1688 at Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia.
He married Catharina ? Abt. 1708 at Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia. He died 19 Apr 1724 at Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia (telephone code 07243). Catharina was born Abt. 1690 at Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia. They had several children but Johannes Casper Schell was the only one who did not go by Schild. My guess when he came to America he changed his name.

Any info you have would be greatly appreciated. He is my greatgrandfather X4.

I hope this helps.

Johann Casper Schell came to U.S.A in 1742 on ship Robert & Alice.
Paper work said he boarded in Rotterdam. Some say he lived in or around
Wertembery. It is thought he was born between 1722-1730. He did sign the
shipping list. It is thought that you were 15 years of age or older to
sign. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You. R.Shell

Generation No. 2

2. Johannes Casper (Sr) Schild2 Schell (Peter Schildt1 Schild)13,14 was born January 01, 1715/16 in Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia, Deutschland (Germany)15,16, and died April 10, 1806 in Lincolnton, Lincoln Co., North Carolina17,18. He met Anna Catherina Gertrude Bott19,20 Bet. September 24, 1747 - 1749 in Berks or Lancaster County, PA, daughter of William Bott and ? Catront. She was born Abt. 1720 in Germany or Holland21,22, and died Bet. 1800 - 1804 in Lincolnton, Lincoln Co., North Carolina23,24.

Notes for Johannes Casper (Sr) Schild Schell:
Thanks to Strassburger and Hinke, we have photocopies of the original lists which give the names of passengers. List 95C is a list of the takers of the oath of abjuration from the ship Robert and Alice in 1742. It contains the name, Johann Caspar Schell. There is NO umlaut on this name although the umlaut is used on the names of Filippus Borgeres (first name on the list) and Fridrich Muller(10th name). The "Sch" may be ill defined, but is so nearly identical to the "Sch" in the names Johann Jacob Schmitt (two above Caspar) and Dauvit Schmitt (one below) that I am moved to believe that these names were written by the same person, perhaps a clerk. They may not be signatures after all.

One theory has it that his father was Petro Schild born ABT 1688 at Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia. Petro married Catharina ? M: ABT 1708 at Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia. He died 19 April 1724 at Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia. Catharina was born ABT 1690 at Ettringen, Rheinland, Prussia. They had several children but Johannes Casper Shell was the only one who did not go by Schild. End of theory.


The one major conflict of information of this family line is whether it originated in Holland, Germany, or Prussia, as all of the pedigree files report. Some researchers indicate steadfastly that Johann Casper was "of Holland Dutch and not German Dutch", perhaps migrating to Germany before his arrival in America. The answer may just be "all of the above". As was often the case throughout Europe during its development, the boarders of the different countries often changed and were seldom static for long periods of time. The Netherland / Germany boarders were such the case. Around the 1200's, Germany controlled the area which is now The Netherlands, and Prussia (the largest province of Germany) was once the controlling government of that same area. So you see, the area of Europe that now includes
The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxumbourg, and Germany was at one time or another under the control of all three (Germany, Holland, and Prussia), all during different time frames. Perhaps that is reason for the different spellings of the family name, with SHELL as Dutch, and SCHELL as the German version
________________________________________________________________________________________________

Maybe I can shed some light on the background of Schell family origins. I live in Germany and I was born in the city of Bonn (Rhineland). Our family is descending from a Schell family, of which came one founding member of a small brotherhood of fishermen, who were licensed to fish in the area of the river Sieg and a small section of the river Rhine near the city of Bonn. This brotherhood, was founded more than 850 (!) years ago in this place, and it still exists today. This license was granted by the landlords, in this case a landlady, the head of a nun's convent nearby and it has been recogized ever since by the changing civilian rulers and systems. This well documented. A gorgeous Roman church, which was part of this monastery, still exists today and can be visited. According to the original statutes only the legitimate) male descendants of the founding families were allowed to become members of the brotherhood, and this tradition is followed to this day, even though it has become a topic of dispute recently, of course. Today several hundred Schell descendants are on record with this brotherhood, some assemble each January for their annual convent (together with the descendants of the other five families which were among the founders), as demanded in the original statues of their old Brotherhood of Fishermen. As tradition demands, every member is offered a bottle of dry wine and a breadroll of a certain kind at this meeting, called the "Geding". Sometime in the historic documents a coat of arms like emblem representing the Schell "tribe" from the Brotherhood of Fishermen appeared, which shows an illustration of a small round bell, similar to those used on a harlekin dress. This is logical in so far, as in German as spoken in the Rhineland the word "Schell(e)" means a (small) bell. The region where this happened is just around 60 (by land) or 120 miles (by river) from the Dutch border. So it might well be that this Casper (Caspar?) Schell came from Holland to the USA, but that his family origins where further south in Germany, in this area near the city of Bonn. While this age-old settlement of Schell name bearers is well documented, before the 12th century, of course, their origins seem to be in the dark. I know of another source for Schell name bearers which is in Hugary. Although the Hungarian language demands another way of spelling of the name, like "Szell" - the pronounciation is identical, "shell". As is known, quite often the spelling of a name changed in order to accomodate the pronounciation in the environment where it was used. So, this might also be a link. It is open to speculation, if imigrants whose name was pronouced like Schell arrived in the Rhineland from far away Hungary
sometime before he 12th century, or if they were local settlers who received their name when this part of the country got visited by the christian missionaries from Ireland, which happend just around 200 years earlier. Who knows.
If more info is wanted about this sensationally old Brotherhood of Fishermen, please get in touch, and I shall try to get more details.

Note that several Kaspar Schell names begin occurring shortly after the Canton of Zug was formed. This also occurred shortly after the two Schellenberg castles in Lichtenstein were destroyed by the Hapsburgs. I had speculated that the Schell's in Zug had migrated up the valley from Lichtenstein, and had taken on the Schell name from their origin. I am a direct descendent of J. Caspar Schell, and my family tradition has been that he was Holland Dutch. His great grandson who lived to be over 100 years old told me this in 1947. My further speculation was that since Switerland and Holland were Calvinists countries, a natural migration in that direction might have occurred, particularly after Holland became free in the 1650's. J. Caspar Schell was known to be protestant. I realize that his true origin may never benresolved. I am very much aware of the border changes that were occurring in the 1600 and 1700's, and how this confuses the issue. However, the article by Paul Schell is fascinating, and I am very interested in knowing more about the early Schell's he described. They pre-date the Zug Schells. I need to fit this into my speculation. By the way, I visited the Schellengberg castles in 1987. If I had been asked to name them, my modern day choice would have been the same. Neu Schellenberg was at the top of the hill with pasture land surrounding it. Cattle with ringing cow bells grazed around the entire perimeter, forming a German Schellen (ring of bells) around the top of the small mountain(berg). This is a subject in which I am very much interested. Please feel free to email me at the following address:

Johannes was a farmer and a Lutheran. (Could this be why he left his family and changed the spelling of his name? He was the only one in his family that went to the USA. Have tracked siblings branches down 3 generations.

Long before there were any settlements in Frederick County, parties of Germans passed through it from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, to seek homes in Virginia. The principal route was over a pack horse or Indian road that crossed the present Pennsylvania counties of York and Adams to the Monocracy where it passed into Maryland. Once in Maryland, the road passed through Crampton's
Gap and crossed the Potomac at several fords. The first German settlement in Frederick County was as early as 1729 in the village of Monocracy, which was the first village beyond the lower part of Montgomery County in Western Maryland .
