"At a Council at the CourtHouse in Philadelphia, Wednesday, the 22nd
November 1752.
          Present: Joshua Maddoc, Esquire.
The foreigners whose Names are underwritten, Imported in the Ship Phoenix,
Captain Ruben Honor, from Rotterdam and last from Cowes, did this day take
the usual Qualifications.


Wolfgang (X) Winebrener           Anthon ( ) Weinbrener"

[Believed to be the two eldest sons of Johann Theiß and Catherine/Katrina, preceded the family to Philadelphia the year before Catherine arrived with four more of her children.  Wolfgang and Anthon could also be brothers of Johann Theiß. See notes below for more info on this family.

[List 209 C] "At the Court House at Philadelphia, Saturday, the 29 September, 1753.  Present: Joshua Maddox, Esquire.
The Foreigners whose Names are underwritten, imported in the Ship or Snow called the Rowand, Capt Arthur Tran, from Rotterdam but last from Cowes in England, did this Day take the usual Qualification. No. 109.

Johann Christ Weinbrener  

According to directions we have carefully examin'd the State of Health of the Mariners and Passengers on board the Snow Rowan, Capt. Alterhand [!] from Roterdam[sic] and found nothing amongst them which we apprehend can be injurious to the Healths of the Inhabitants of the City.
To his Honour Tho. Graeme
The Governour. Th. Bond
Doctors Report on the Ship Rowan, 29th Septr 1753."


From the records of Patsy Ann Mc Knight:
"Passport from Province of Baden, Karlsruhe, Germany in 1752.  Sailed on ship Rowand, Capt. Arthur Tran.  Layover for clearance at Cowes, Isle of Wight.
Landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylviana on 29 Sep 1753.  Ship lists only one Winebrenner & wife [
?] Anna Maria. [this seems to be an assumption ~ Ann Maria was the name of Johann Christian's second wife. None of the lists indicate "& wife"]. Name was Anglicised at processing or misspelled on the records, but Johann Christian retained the original spelling until his death, as shown on his will.
Oath of Allegiance, And Abduration Signed in compliance with Province of Pennsylvania, and known as qualified.  Belonged to German Reformed Church."

 [Note:There has been speculation that the father of this family (Johann Theiß Weinbrenner) either died in Germany before the family left or that he may have died aboard the Snow Rowand.   *I sent an inquiry about the three separate passengers lists 209A, 209B and 209C to the ISTG because I noted that the number of imported and qualifying passengers remain 109.  If Johann Theiß had died aboard ship, the number would have changed to 108 passengers signing qualification papers in Philadelphia.  The doctor did not record a death at sea.  The different spellings of the last name is  from transcriptions at "Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild"   (http://www.immigrantships.net/).  Catherine's youngest child was born in 1752.  Although they may have planned to emigrate as a family, it is likely Johann Theiß and Catherine decided to stay behind, so she would not deliver the baby aboard ship] (notes by Carol Vivier)

*[Note: a reply dated 9 October, 2003 from the ISTG confirms the passenger count on all three lists was 109]

A passport was issued to Johann Theiß in 1752, however, it appears he did not leave Germany, only Anthon & Wolfgang emigrated in 1752. We believe he died in Germany about that time. He is not listed on any of the three passenger lists (boarding, imported or qualified) for 1752 or 1753 when his family emigrated to Pennsylvania.

Catherine/Katrina and her four children arrived in Philadelphia on September 29, 1753, aboard the Ship Rowand, Arthur Trann, Captain.  Johann Christian, being eldest son was listed as "head of family".  Living conditions aboard ship were as follows:

the diet of passengers was:

Sundays- meat with peas/beans/rice;


Tuesdays- bacon fat with peas/beans/rice;


Thursdays- meat with peas/beans/rice;

Fridays- butter and dried cod with peas/beans/ rice;

Saturdays- bread and cheese with pea soup. 

They were given water and a daily measure of  beer, and were allowed six hours of fire to prepare their food and warm themselves, if wind and weather permitted.  Thirsty individuals were allowed a measure of wine to make a spiced wine drink [grog]. 

Their sleeping spaces were described as " six foot long and one and one half feet wide."
