The first Wannemacher's to arrive in North America in 1709
were Johann Pieter (my ancestor), settling in Bergen county,
NJ. and Johann Deiterich, in 1710, settling in Rockland
county, NY and Bergen county, NJ. Also their siblings Adam, Conrad, and sister
Margaret came settling near Mahwah, NJ along with other family
and friends. May be relatives to the above family were Jacob, SC in 1737
and Georg, PA in 1731. Important Notice: See important information link
in Coat of Arms page.
During the American Revolution they fought on both sides of that war.
After the war, during the great migration of United Empire Loyalists,
arriving in upper Canada, were six Wannamaker brothers in about 1783,
four of the brothers fought the war. My ancestor to Canada was Loyalist
Harmanus Wannamaker, settling first in Prince Edward county, Ontario.
Then Wannamaker's in Hastings and Renfrew countys, Ontario. Much can be said about this
old and noble family.

There is no proof yet that those families belong to this Wannemacher
family. Please be sure to see the link Very Important Notice in the page
