Emigrants on the ship ‚Vaterlandsliebe‘ from Antwerp to Philadelphia 1817
Emigranten aus dem Königreich Württemberg auf dem Schiff “Vaterlandsliebe von Antwerpen nach Philadelphia, 1817



In 1817, due to a severe economic crisis in the Kingdom of Wuerttemberg, thousands of people left the country. Most of them went down the river Danube from Ulm to Southern Russia, where the Czar had offered them land on favorable conditions. Some others, however, went to the United States, the country of religious freedom. Among them there was a group of Separatists, people who had separated from the Protestant Church which they despised. Some men had been arrested on the fortress of Hohenasperg near Ludwigsburg for many years.
In Ohio, the Separatists founded a community named Zoar. Soon afterwards a community of goods was established by abolishing any private property. The Zoar Society existed until the end of the 19th century and was dissolved in 1898.
Most of the passengers on the ship ‘Vaterlandsliebe’ were Separatists who went to Zoar. Some others were probably friends and sympathizers who did not take the decision. The leading men in Zoar, Joseph Michael Bäumler from Merklingen and later Ulm who called himself Bimeler in the U.S., and Stephan Huber from Rottenacker, do not appear on the list. Perhaps they went earlier to America to do the necessary preparations.
Here the names of the passengers are given in their original German form. In the list there appear 107 persons who had signed the shipping contract, and their family members and friends are given as companions. The hometowns are given where they could be found; in the original list only the district towns are given, and some of them are obviously incorrect (these mistakes are not corrected here). The document is to be found at the State Archives Ludwigsburg D 41 Bue 4408. A transcript of the original passenger list was already published on the Internet:

Im Jahr 1817 kam es durch Missernten und stark ansteigende Lebensmittelpreise im Königreich Württemberg zu einer schweren ökonomischen Krise. Tausende von Menschen verließen das Land. Die meisten fuhren mit dem Schiff die Donau hinunter bis nach Südrussland. Dort hatte ihnen der Zar Land zu günstigen Bedingungen versprochen. Einige andere wanderten jedoch in die Vereinigten Staaten, das Land der religiösen Freiheit, aus. Unter ihnen befand sich eine Gruppe von Separatisten, Menschen, die sich aus religiösen Gründen von der protestantischen Kirche getrennt hatten. Einige Männer hatten wegen ihrer religiösen Überzeugungen jahrelange Strafen auf der Festung Hohenasperg bei Ludwigsburg verbüßt.
In Ohio begründeten die Separatisten eine Siedlung und nannten sie Zoar. Bald nach der Gründung führten sie die Gütergemeinschaft ein, indem jegliches Privateigentum abgeschafft wurde. Die “Zoar Society” existierte bis zum Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts und wurde 1898 aufgelöst.
Die meisten Passagiere auf dem Schiff „Vaterlandsliebe“’ waren Separatisten, die nach Zoar reisten. Einige andere waren vielleicht Freunde oder Sympathisanten, die sich in den Vereinigten Staaten der Zoar Society nicht anschlossen. Die führenden Männer in Zoar, Joseph Michael Bäumler aus Merklingen, der später in Ulm lebte und sich in Amerika Bimeler nannte, und Stephan Huber aus Rottenacker, erscheinen nicht in der Liste. Vielleicht waren sie schon früher nach Amerika gereist, um Vorbereitungen zur Siedlungsgründung zu treffen.
Hier erscheinen die Namen der Passagiere in der originalen deutschen Schreibweise. In der Liste erscheinen 107 Personen, und ihre Familienmitglieder und Freunde werden als Begleiter erwähnt. Die Herkunftsorte sind angegeben, soweit sie ermittelt werden konnten. Im Original erscheinen nur die Oberämter, aber manche Angaben sind nicht richtig (die Fehler wurde hier nicht korrigiert). Die Passagierliste befindet sich im Staatsarchiv Ludwigsburg D 41 Bü 4408. Ein Transkript der originalen Liste findet sich auf der oben angegebenen Homepage schule-bw.
