Frederick Schollenberger arrived in Philadelphia on September 3, 1742, aboard the "Loyal Judith" having sailed from Rotterdam, Holland, via Cowles, England. He swore allegiance to the king in 1747 and acquired approximately 100 acres of land in Greenwich Township, Berks County,Pennsylvania, in 1749. This farm was deeded to his eldest son Jacob,however, his other children nor his wife are ever enumerated. Lorenz,Gerhardt, Jacob and Heinrich Schollenberger either had adjoining farms or were tax payers at the same time as Frederick Schollenberger in Greenwich Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. By a process of elimination it seems very probable that Lorenz and the others were the children of Frederick Schollenberger.

Family tradition holds that family is of Swiss origin and indeed a Schollenberger Family from about 1150 to approximately 1750 had a castle about a mile outside of Flaack, Zurich Canton, Switzerland. Prior to that the family probably lived in the Rheinland in Germany. While in Switzerland the Schollenbergers were probably knights who served the Habsburg Family under the auspices of the Hartmann Family who lived near Winterthur, Switzerland. [v47t1612.FTW]
