"MARIA ELIZABETH (NELLISIN) Born in Europe, probably in Germany about 1675. After a period of wars, political upheaval, and religious disruption in the Rhine River valley area of the Paltz or Palatinate, a very harsh winter sent many of the residents, into exile. A group of these refugees settled in or near London, England, probably in an area then known as St. Catharines. To alleviate the stress on her own population, Queen Ann (1702-1714) arranged to transport a great many of them in sailing ships in 1709 and 1710 to the New York colony to establish an English presence in New Amsterdam, an area formerly controlled by the Dutch. MARIA ELIZABETH NELLESIN and her three children may have sailed on the Ship Lyon, a ship that was registered at Leith, Scotland. They arrived at Governor Hunter's Island sometime before 30 Jun 1710 when MARIA ELIZABETH made her initial appearance on the Hunter Lists as #546 with three persons over 10 and 1 person under 10. MARIA ELIZABETH was also on NY Palatine subsistence list of 24 June 1712. She died after that date, probably in West Camp, Ulster, NY. "
