Hi Eric-

I found your site while searching for old family history.  My ancestors (Jacob Mattis Sr. b. 1761 and Peter Mattis Sr. b. 1726) came from Heubuden, Germany and sometime around the U.S. Revolutionary War, came to America.  If you've come across any info that could help me obtain more info on their lives or trace things back further, I'd really appreciate.  We are, I assume in some way, related anyway!  And I just got back from a trip to Nova Scotia and the Bay of Fundy-

Jason Mattis

Introduction:

------------

After the occupation of West Prussia and the District of the Netze River by Prussia during the first partition of Poland in the year 1772, the Geheime Finanzrat Rembert Roden was ordered by Frederick the Great to prepare a land survey of these territories. The land survey should produce the necessary foundation for the introduction of the Prussian taxation system in the new territory. In the years 1772/73 three commissions with about 60 officials and 40 surveyors were occupied with this work. For each town a land register was established which could contain up to 91 items.

This was largely a head of household registration and not a poll tax or one that counted every person. Thus the listing of names is restricted to the head of household at the time of the registration. Most head of households were male although there are a few women listed. The most frequent enumeration of women comes as widow and thus lists the surname of the deceased husband. Unfortunately, many women are listed without a surname, this is also the case with male Jews, and to some extent people with Polish heritage. An important aspect of this land tax register is the listing of children. The number of children living in 1772 are numerically indicated, most of the time designated as over and under 12 years of age.
