The Pulvers came to America to New York in 1710; they were considered Palatines who fled Germany because of economic and religious problems to the Netherlands and were taken under the protection of England and brought to America to be colonists.

 

Most of the Palatines for New York began boarding ships in Dec 1709, but did not leave England until April 1710. About 3,100 emigrants sailed on 11 ships to New York and were accompanied by the Governor-Elect Hunter. About 470 Germans perished on the voyage and another 250 after landing. An estimated 2,500 disease-laden emigrants had to be provided for in New York.

 

There are many books written on these immigrants.

 

The first Pulver immigrant was Johan Wilhelm or Wendell Pulver. See The Palatine Families of New York - 1710 by Henry Z Jones, a study of the German immigrants who arrived in Colonial New York in 1710.  They lived in Dutchess and Columbia Counties, New York.

Johan Wendel Pulver was German, and with his family went with the Palatines to England in 1709.  In 1710 they emigrated to America and settled along the Hudson River in New York. First at Hunterstown in what is now Columbia County and later moved down to Dutchess County, in the Rhinebeck area. 

Johan's wife was Anna Catherina Busch (Boes, Britzen, Bosh, etc.) "She was a daughter of Daniel Busch and Elizabeth, baptized Dom 4 Advent 1679, Neuwied (Weidt) Germany." Their two children, Michael and Peter, were born in Germany before they left for England.
 

PALATINES - The Palatines were so called because of many of those early settlers came from the Lower Palatinate in Germany, from the lower Rhine... After October 1685, when Louis XIV revoked the EDICT OF NANTES, there was a strong religious rebellion. The French Protestants were Hugenots; The German Protestants were Palatines. The Hugenots fled to Palatinate country to escape religious persecution in France. By 1709 there homeland devistated by warfare, the Palatines and Hugenots sought refuge in England where Queen Anne seemed sympathetic to their plight. Arrangements were made to settle these refugees in the New World.

On a list of "Poor Palatines" who were the 4th party to arrive at St. Catherines and Deftford, England, June 11, 1709 was Wendel Pulver, 30 years old & wife, Catherine, and sons 5 years and 2 years old.

Michael Pulver was born in Germany in 1704. He was listed as only 5 years old when the family moved to England in 1709, so he was 6 years old when they all came to America in 1710. They first settled on their Hunterstown property in Columbia County, NY, later moving down to Dutchess Co., in the Rhinebeck area. This was in the early 1720's. As he and Anna Catharina Mohr were married in early 1730's, this probably took place here in Rhinebeck area. Evidently they lived here the rest of their lives. Their eleven children were all born here, between 1732 and 1753.

Elisabeth SHUFELT, the daughter of Johannes Zufelt (16) and Anna Catharina Pulver was baptized “Eliesabetha” at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Red Hook, November 6, 1757. The baptismal record lists the parents as “Joh: Zufelt and Catharina Pulver.” Sponsers at the baptism were "Michael Pulver and wife, Catharina Moor."

This is probably the Elizabeth who, in 1793, at the Reformed Church of Kinderhook, married Garrit Dingman and had at least four children baptized at Kinderhook. Garrit was the son of Albertus Dingman and Gertrude Ham, baptized "Gerret" at Kinderhook Reformed Church October 8, 1757, with "Hendrick Gardenier and Elizabeth Dingmanse" serving as sponsors. The baptismal record lists the parents as "Albertus Dingmanse and Geertruy Ham."
