For religious reasons. "The Berne authorities....endeavored to get rid of the objectionable Anabaptists (all other means and measures having failed) by shipping them to America....". This quote is from P. 139 of the following book. See pages 2, 3, 138, 139, 158, 159, 160, 161, 162, and 163 in "Historic Background and Annals of the Swiss and German Pioneer Settlers of South-Eastern Pennsylvania and of their Remote Ancestors, from the Middle of the Dark Ages, Down to the Time of the Revolutionary War" by H. Frank Eshleman, 1917, Lancaster, PA. A Jacob Ulrich is mentioned on P. 159. I copied these pages from the book at the Los Angeles Public Library, but you could hopefully get an interlibary loan at your local library.
