Family of Johann Martin Herttel

The family of Johann Martin HERTTEL, while not not related to the family of (Hans) Michael HIRTLE, is frequently confused with them.  For that reason alone, it may be useful to record information about the HERTTELS here.

Johann Martin HERTTEL was originally from the small town of Leimen, near Heidelberg.  He and his two sisters, Regina Barbara and Susanna Elisabeth, sailed to Nova Scotia on the Gale in 1752 as part of the family of his step-father, Johann Michael SCHMITT.

More on the family of Johann Martin HERTTEL may be found in the note accompany the record for Johann Jacob ENGELHORN.  Polli Turner has done much of the work on the history of the ENGLEHORN/HERTTEL line; she can be reached via her web site at
