"The early settles who landed in Lunenburg in 1753 were known as the Foreign Protestants.  They were received by a British agent by the name of Dick who moved up the Rhine River and it's tributaries visiting villages over quite a large area.  They could be divided into seven main groups.  Germany was not a federated state at that time, but consisted of many loosely knit small states.

1. The largest group came from the Palatinate which is the part of Germany which is east of the Mosel River.  Its area extends along the Rhine River south, from where the River Main joins the Rhine to Heidelburg.

2.  Wurtemberg.  The area about the Neckar River to its junction with the Rhine.

3. Montbeliard - In modern France it would be the area adjacent to the Swiss and German borders.  In the 18th century Montbeliard was part of the Grand Duchy of Wurtemberg. Additional information including names inscribed on the Montbeliard Monument in Lunenburg can be seen on this website.

4. Northern Switzerland.

5. Small states north and south of the Main River such as Masseau, Hesse, Darmstadt, Franconia and Erback.

6. More remote German states along the Elbe River such as Saxony, Brandenburg and Hamburg, and the Holstein area which is just south of Denmark.

7. Others of which the largest group would be the Friesland districts of Holland."
