Ludwig "Lewis" CRIGLER [Parents] was born on 1 Oct 1764 in , Culpeper Co., Virginia. He married Anna CARPENTER.

From Cindy Crigler:

11. Lewis (Ludwig) Crigler, b. October 1, 1764, Culpeper Co VA. He married
Anna Carpenter, b. 1760/63, daughter of Andrew Carpenter and Barbara
Weaver. Barbara Weaver was the granddaughter of Susanna Clore through her
son Peter Weaver.

On 13 Feb 1998 Sally Walker wrote "A permit for a mill on the Robinson
river was given to Lewis 4 August 1805. It was demolished in the 1950s but
some of the stone used to build it is still there. It remained in the
Crigler family until 1890."

There are several land transactions for Lewis in the Library of Virginia's Northern Neck Land Records.

Lewis Crigler was commissioned a Major in the County Militia in 1802 (Court Order Book 2, page 325.) Lewis died about 1815. His land was divided among
his heirs in 1817. This division is recorded in Will Book 4, page 414. According to this division he had the following children;

Germany, as we now know it has existed only since 1871. Prior to that time there was the German Confederation (1815-1866) and from medieval times until 1806 the major political union in Germany was the Holy Roman Empire, which consisted of hundreds of principalities.

The Wayland name has been around for centuries. Visit: http://witcombe.bcpw.sbc.edu/EMWayland.html
This has information on the original Wayland the Smith.
Also: http://www.henge.demon.co.uk/wayland.html has this info:

"How To Get There:
Wayland's Smithy is situated on the Ridgeway not far from the Uffington White Horse. Find junction 15 of the M4, turn south onto the A346 heading towards Marlborough. Just at the top of the hill take a left turn signed for Badbury (if you go past the garage on the right you've gone too far). Follow this narrow road through Hinton Parva and Idston to Ashbury. Turn right and then immediately left. You'll now be on the B4507 heading for Wantage. Look out for a sign pointing up a narrow road heading up the hill to the right. If you reach the White Horse then you've gone too far. Head up the hill and you'll come to a dirt track crossing the road. This is the Ridgeway. Park and walk down the Ridgeway to the right. Wayland's Smithy is about ten minutes walk.

Wayland's Smithy is a Neolithic long barrow dating back around 5500 years. Four huge sarsen stone uprights guard the entrance to the burial chambers and there is some fine dry stone walling to be seen too, similar to that found at Belas Knap. This "wedge shaped" barrow is 196 feet long and 50 feet wide at the widest point. Wayland's Smithy is set in a wonderfully peaceful grove of beech trees, a good place to be on a fine summer day (or for that matter on a freezing cold, snow laden misty day as shown in the photo above).

The name of the site derives from Scandinavian mythology. Wayland was a smith with supernatural powers. Legend has it that if a horse lost its shoe and was left at the barrow along with a coin placed on the stones then the horse would be re-shod and the coin taken in payment.

Excavations have shown that the current monument was built over the top of a much smaller mound. The burial chambers are at the end of a short passage which is now open to the air. The chambers themselves are still topped with a capstone and are quiet small, I have trouble crawling inside"

After some information exchange on the Internet I happened to become interested in the descendants of the Weinland, Weyland or Weiland who left Europa and settled in Northern America. As early as the first half of the 18th C., some Weinland/Weyland/Weiland names can be found in the passenger lists of the emigration ships as they arrived in America. The Germans-To-America series (1850-1895) contains many Weiland/Weyland/Weinland surnames. Early settlers bearing these surnames one can found in the passenger lists are:

Christane Willand, on the ship Molly, arrived in 1727
Johann Peter Weyand, arrived on the ship Dragon, from Rotterdam, originated from Palatinate and Zweibruecken, September 26, 1749.
Peter Weinland, arrived on the ship St-Andrew Galley from Rotterdam, September 26, 1737. He settled in the Lancaster county, PA and died there in 1759.
Teobald Weyland, arrived in Philadelphia on the ship Brotherhood from Rotterdam, November 3, 1750.
Peter Wieland, arrived in Philadelphia on the ship Patience from Rotterdam, August 11, 1750. In the following pages, you will also find many descendants of Peter Wieland. They settled in Ohio and later moved to Indiana.
In America, these family names sometimes became Wyland, Wiland, Wayland or Wineland.
The family of Thomas Wieland/Wineland arrived in America about 1726 [was about 1719] and settled then in the Germanna colony in Culpepper, Virginia. Thomas was married to Maria Barbara Seppach on August 18, 1711 in Willsbach, Wuerttemberg. His father, Thomas was a blacksmith in Lehrensteinfeld.

The descendants of Jacob Weinland and of Elizabeth Sanger left the Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, about 1850 and they settled in the Preble county and later in the Darke county in Ohio.

Has Wayland the Smithy site on the English page and it says:

"Wayland's Smithy, beautifully situated in a clump of beech trees, is one of the finest chambered long barrows in Britain. Excavations in 1962-63 proved that it had been built in two different periods, around 3700 and 3400 BC. In the first period a wooden mortuary chamber was constructed, where fourteen articulated and disarticulated bodies have been found. Then the burial chamber was surrounded by some sarsen boulders and it was covered with a mound of chalk taken from two flanking ditches. These first mound and ditches are not visible now, covered by the following long barrow.

In the second period a trapezoidal chalk mound was built, measuring 60m (196ft) in length and from 6 to 15m (19 to 50ft) in width. The chalk was held in place by a kerb of stones. At the south end of this barrow, there were once six large slabs. Now only four of them survive: they are 3m (10ft) high and they flank the entrance of a cruciform tomb formed by a passage 6.6m (21ft) long with one chamber at either side. The passage is 1.8m (6ft) and the chambers 1.3m (4ft) high. In earlier excavations in 1919, eight skeletons, one of a child, were found in the long barrow.

Wayland's Smithy got its name some four thousand years later its construction, when Saxon settlers came across the tomb. Not knowing who had built it, they imagined it was the work of one of their gods, Wayland the Smith. Later, a legend grew that Wayland would re-shoe any passing traveller's horse left along with a silver penny beside the tomb."

As stated, Wayland is a blacksmith in "Beowulf." Beowulf (early 8th century) was an Old English (Anglo-Saxon) epic of almost 3200 lines in Alliterative verse. Beowulf is the earliest extant written composition of such length in English and indeed in all Teutonic literature. Its content was based on Norse legends, merged with historical events of the early sixth century in Denmark; this oral tradition was carried to England by Danish invaders of the mid-6th century, fused with the Christianity they absorbed there, and finally written down by a single but unknown poet c700.

The following site: http://members.tripod.com/BGB_WIELAND/ancestors.html

is that of a descendant of a Sebastian Wieland who may have been the father of this Sebastian Wieland (partial copy of that page is below):


Generation No. 1

1. SEBASTIAN2 WIELAND (LIENHARD (LEONHARDT)1) was born 27 April 1578 in SCHOENBRONN, WRT, GERMANY. He married (1) WALPURGA. He married (2) APPOLONIA SCHICKH 15 April 1628. He married (3) BARBARA WIELAND 3 October 1637.



I received this email 3/00 from a German who is a member of our Germanna list:

John, I surely would try to give the pronunciations of these German names. Too bad we can't transmit sound yet by computer or e-mail!

Wieland would be pronounced "Vee-land" , Vee like bee , with the emphasis on Vee and then land short and quick 'land' , not like land or band but with an 'aaaaah', kind of like you have to say when the doctor checks your throat.

There was a famous writer, Christoph Martin Wieland, born in 1733 in Oberholzheim near Biberach, he issued the first German literary magazine, "Der teusche Merkur" (The German Mercury), he was a friend of another famous German: Goethe.

Another Wieland, Heinrich, received the Nobel Price for Chemistry in 1927.


Then I got this from Elke:

The place appears in records for the first time in 1254 or 1384, with the part of Lehren and Steinsfeld, but they already formed one community since the middle ages. In the 14th century it belonged to the Gentlemen von Weinsberg � at this time, the water castle on the former island in the lake at the southeastern edge of the village was probably built. This must have been the core of the village, also the well preserved tower of the former defense church is here. The choir tower is dated 1466, with its timber-framed upper section. The new Protestant church of St. Laurentius was built in 1903, the previous church was dismantled, except the choir tower and the baroque cross and the baptismal font, dated 1759 were retained in the new church. The interior of the old church has been preserved, also the pretty colorful choir windows
made by Gustav v. Treek from Munich, the elaborately fashioned pulpit, the seat for the noble family at the right hand side of the choir, etc. The grave monuments of the Gentlemen von Schmidberg from the 17th and 18th century � they obtained the village in 1649/50 from the von Gemmingen family � and other villagers from the old church were transferred to the chapel at the cemetery.

The castle of the Freiherren von Gemmingen has been erected in the 16th century over a foundation from the middle ages. Important sections from the old building were reused in the Renaissance building, shown by the basement ceilings and the corner tower. The new stairway of the Renaissance with its straight steps was considered to be an utmost modern achievement for that time. In 1649, Field Marshall Ludwig von Schmidberg has obtained the
castle and the village of Lehrensteinsfeld. His descendants remodeled various rooms in the regency style between 1720 and 1750, and the south facade of the castle has been remodeled in the style of the French early classicism. In the interior, a clay stove of 1778, two Rococo porcelain stoves, stucco ceilings and especially a wall hanging painted on linen �
which shows an antique landscape � remind one about this important remodeling phase. The building is surrounded by a wall in the south, dated 1717, and a remarkable park with Orangerie in the north. In 1865 the estate was sold to Julius Dietzsch from Stuttgart, who remodeled two of the rooms. About the same time as the church was rebuilt, in 1906, the core of the city hall built in 1521 or 1591 was also remodeled, its corners still from the old building. The intricate timber-frame building is one of the prettiest in the region, with extensive carvings, dated from the 16th century. In the 17th century, the gentlemen von Gemmingen allowed Jews to settle in the town, around 1850, they made up more than 1/3 of the population and
established a rabbinate in 1832. They synagogue from the 17th century was sold in 1938 and is now incorporated in the building Lehrener Str. 41.
