Phillip Lutsinger - In "Monocacy and Catoctin", C. E.Schildknecht, editor, page 95,

 Philip Litsinger is mentioned as a head of families of Frederick County, Maryland, who, in March 1766, petitioned the Governor to call the Maryland Assembly for the purpose of issuing bills of credit (paper money). From this last item,

 

 Philip Litsinger is listed in the "Genealogical Index to Frederick County, Maryland", page 59.

 According to Frederick County, land records, on August 21, 1769, Philip Letzinger and his wife Sarah sold their land to Peter Yeader. Their land was called "Philips Chance" and was located in the area of Little Antietam, which was southwest of the town of Frederick. In Loudoun County, Virginia, heads of families paid a yearly tithe to the court.

 

 The name of Phillip appears as follows in "Loudoun County, Virginia Tithables 1758-1778," volume 2: pages 526 (Phillip Ledsinner), 543 (Fillep Ledsinger), 699 (Philip Letsinger) and 846 (Philip Lettsinger). On March 15, 1777, inLoudoun County, Virginia,

 

Philip Lutesinger made his will in which he mentioned his wife Sarah and children Michael, Philp and Rebecca. Philip's children, Philip and Becky, were mentioned in an Indenture of Lease made between George William

Fairfax and James Neilson in June 1787 ("Virginia County, Court

Records, Deed Abstracts of Loudoun County, Virginia,

1787-1788", page 40);

 Philip and Rebecca were identified as the

children of Nielsons wife by her former husband. We have no

further information on wife Sarah or children Michael and

Rebecca, except for Michael possibly being in Baltimore County,

Maryland in 1783, as mentioned above.

 

  In "Settlers of Maryland 1751-1765," page 250, in

Frederick County on April 9 1764, Philip Sitzsinger is named as owner of 31

acres of land called "Philip's Choice".  In the same source, page 170, also

in Frederick County on April 9 1765, Philip Litzsinger is named as owner of

31 acres of land called "Philip's Choice".  According to Frederick County

land records, on August 21, 1769, Philip Letzinger and his wife Sarah sold

their land to Peter Yeader.  Their land was called "Philips Chance" and was located in the area of Little Antietam, which was southwest of the town ofFrederick.  In Loudoun County, VA, heads of families paid a yearly tithe to the court.  The name of Phillip appears as follows in "Loudoun County Virginia Tithables 1758-1778," volume 2: pages 526 (Phillip Ledsinner), 543 (Fillep Ledsinger), 699 (Philip Letsinger) and 846 (Philip Lettsinger).  OnMarch 15, 1777, in Loudoun County, VA, Philip Lutesinger made his will in which he mentioned his wife Sarah and children Michael, Philp and Rebecca. Philip's children, Philip and Becky, were mentioned in an Indenture of Lease made between George William Fairfax and James Neilson in June 1787 ("Virginia County Court Records, Deed Abstracts of Loudoun County, Virginia,

1787-1788", page 40).  Philip and Rebecca were identified as the children of Nielson's wife by her former husband.  We have no further information on wife Sarah or children Michael and Rebecca, except for Michael possibly being in Baltimore County, MD in 1783, as mentioned above.

 

 Philip Letsinger - Philip, son of Phillip, was born about 1769, probably in

Frederick County, MD; this date is derived from his second wife's pension

records (which are in the National Archives) in which Philip's doctor states

that Philip was about 70 years of age when he died in 1839.  According to

marriage records of Bedford County, VA, on July 27, 1789, Philip obtained a bond to marry Ann Pettit; Lewis Pettit gave his approval so she was probably

his daughter.  Next, in October 1810 in Knox County, TN, marriage records,

Philip was listed as a bondsman.  On November 6, 1838, Philip obtained a

bond to marry Elizabeth Shinpock.  According to Elizabeth's pension records

(her pension was based on her first husband's (Henry Shinpock) service and

death during the War of 1812), her second husband Philip Letsinger died in

June 1839 and was buried at Hickory Creek Meeting House, Knox County, TN.

Based on census, marriage and probate records, Philip's children were:

Elizabeth Rebecca, John, Sarah, Mary Alice, Frances, Philip, Susan, Daniel

B., Lewis Pettit, Allen, and Jacob, all by his first wife Ann; there were no

known children by his second wife.

 

===============================

 

According to "Dictionary of American Family Names", by Patrick Hanks, page 427, the name Letsinger is "Americanized form of German Lutzinger, a habitational name from a place called Lutzingen near Donauworth in Bavaria."In the same source, page 448, the name Litzinger is "German; habitational name for someone from Lutzingen in southern Germany."

 

Lutzingen may be found by following these directions on a map of southern

Germany:

 Locate Munich (Munchen).

 From Munich look left and up (direction NW) for Augsburg.

 From Augsburg look up (direction N) for Donauworth.

 From Donauworth look left and down (direction SW) for Dillingen.

 On a road or line drawn between Donauworth and Dillingen, locate Hochstadt.

 Lutzingen is above (direction N) Hochstadt.

Notes for Johann Jacob Hochstattler:

This family came to America on the Ship Harle on September 1, 1736 at Philadelphia Harbor.  With this family there was a Mar Catharina Hochstattler 42 years of age.  Maria Eve was listed as being 28 years of age .  Also  a Michael Hochstattler arrived on the Ship Harle and was listed with the sick.  It is not clear if Michael belonged with our family, I believe that Michael, son of Jacob and Maria Eva was born on board the ship to America.

Notes for Christian Hochstattler:

 

The Origin of the name Hostetler

 

 The Swiss people, including our early ancestors, first came to live in a Roman province called "Helvetica", which was settled by a Germanic people called the "Alemanns" during the fifth and sixth centuries AD. Due to the passionate work of Irish Missionaries such as Saint Colomban and Saint Gall (for whom the Swiss city of Saint-Gallen is named) many Swiss were converted to Christianity. The territory in which they lived formed a part of the empire of Charlemagne in the ninth century, while in the tenth century Muslim and Magyar raiders cloaked the region in darkness.

 

Most scholars consider the foundation of the Swiss nation to have been laid in the year 1291, when the cantons of Uri, Schmyz, Nidwalden (the Forest Cantons) and Oberwalden formed a league of mutual defense against the Habsburgs of Austria which was to become the foundation of the Swiss Confederation. By 1353, our forefathers became citizens of the Confederation when Luzern, Zurich, Glarus, Bern and Zug were added.

 

Until about 1100 A.D. most people in Europe had only one name. As the population increased, it became awkward to live in a village where, perhaps, half the males were named John and the another sizeable percentage named William and so forth.

 

And so, in order to distinguish one John from another, a second name was needed. There were four primary sources for these second names. They came from the bearer's: occupation, town or area of residence (toponymical), parent's name (patronymical) or some personal, distinguishable characteristic he may have had.

 

The surname Hostetler and it's numerous variations are anglicized forms of the Swiss surname Höchstetter, which is of toponymical origin. These types of surnames were often attached to, or assumed by people who had moved away from their home towns but had become identified with the towns, and subsequently name after them. Many towns and villages are named Hochstadt, Hochstedt and Höchstetten, but the most likely town to have inspired the name of our family is Höchstetten, which is located in Switzerland west of Luzern. The proper noun Höchstetten consists of two distinct elements, "höch" and "stetten". The initial element, "höch", came from the Middle High German "hoehede" indicating "height". The element "stetten" derives from the Old High German "stat" which originially denoted a "place or location" but later came to mean "town" (in today's German "stadt"). Thus the meaning of the place name Höchstetten is "high place". The "er" suffix of the surname indicates "person from", and therefore the meaning of the surname Höchstetter is consequently "person from Höchstetten".

 

In certain situations, the name Höchstetter may be of geographic or locative origin, making reference to some feature of the land found near the home of the original name bearer. The word "Hostett" remains a live Swiss word which refers to a "Baumgarten" or a "cultivated garden where trees grow". With this in mind, the meaning of the surname could be "person from the high place" or "person from the tree garden".

 

Another hypothesis of the name origin is the derivative of the word "Hofstatt" which is a french dialectic word which meant "servants to a wealthy, honored family living in a castle". As the Hostettlers of Wahlern locale had written their surname many times, through the ages, as "Hofstettler", the origin could possibly have been of reference to peasants serving the Hofstatt of Wahlern.

 

The surnames of Switzerland, in general, reflect the linguistic diversity of the country, which has four official languages: German, French, Italian and Romansh (the latter being a language which is derived from Latin and is only used by 1% of the population). Within this structure of diverse languages, there exists a wide variety of local and regional dialects with the Swiss-German dialects remaining the most popular even in modern day.

 

We can see the reflections of the interaction of the various languages and dialects with the variations in the spelling of our own surname (i.e. Hochstettler, Hochstedler, Hostetter, Hostettler, Hostetler, Hufstedler and so on).
