Ship from Switzerland
This information is extracted from a book called 'A History of the Lutheran Church in S.C.' published by the S.C. Synod of the Lutheran Church. I am not sure if this is the ship that Bartholomew Gartman of South Carolina came on but decided to post this information here as a clue. It only gives the name of the Captain, not the name of the ship.
In the July 12-July 19,1735 edition of the South Carolina Gazette there
is an article that says on Sunday last (either Sunday July 13 or Sunday
July 6) there arrived a ship from Rotterdam by way of Cowes whose Captain
was Capt.Hugh Percy. On the ship was 250 Switzers who were to settle upon
the Edisto River. On Thursday(either July 17 or July 10)they were given
of allegiance by 3 Justices of the Peace.
So, maybe if you find a ship whose Captain was Hugh Percy it might be
worthwhile to look especially hard at the passenger list. Or maybe look
in the South Carolina Journals for people taking the Oath of Allegiance.
This is only a clue, but maybe it will help.
In August 1732 a ship called the 'Samuel' with Hugh Percy as Commander arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam by way of Cowes. Was there a ship called the Samuel that arrived in South Carolina in July 1735?
