Melchior Brombach1

M, b. circa 1685, d. before July 1746
     Melchior Brombach was born circa 1685 at Muesen, Nassau-Siegen (now in Nordrhein-Westfalen), Germany. He was the son of Johannes Brombach and Anna Margaretha Kemper. Melchior Brombach married Maria Elisabetha Fischbach, daughter of Philipp Fischbach and Elisabeth Heimbach, circa 1714 at Germanna Colony, Orange Co. (now), VA, The marriage may have occurred in Trupbach, Nassau-Siegen immediately prior to the emigration. Melchior and Elizabeth first lived in the common compound at Germanna in what is present-day Orange County, Virginia, but about 1721, along with many others from the settlement, relocated several miles northeast of Germanna. There on Licking Run, in what was then old Stafford County, later Prince William and since 1759, Fauquier County, the settlers took up individual tracts and named their new community "Germantown." Melchior and Elizabeth took up 100 acres (lot #7). Those seeking a deed to their land appeared in Spotsylvania County Court, 2 June 1724 to certify that they were legal residents of Virginia.

"Melcherd Brumback in order to take up land according to Royal Charter made oath that he came into this Colony to dwell in 1714 and brought with him his wife Elizabeth and that this is the first time of proving said importation, whereupon certificate is ordered to be granted them the right to take up land." Spotsylvania Co. VA Will Book "A", pp. 3-4.(Bly.)2 Melchior Brombach emigrated in 1714; Emigrated from Nassau-Siegen without permission as a bachelor (Holzclaw).

Civil records at Muesen prove that "Melchior, son of Johannes, wandered off to the Island of Carolina" by 1713. In December, 1713, Caspar Brumbach of Muesen asked to be relieved of a tax burden he was asked to pay on behalf of his brother Melchior "who had gone to foreign lands."(Bly).3,2 He immigrated in April 1714 to Orange Co., VA; To Gov. Spotswood's Germanna Colony at the forks of the Rapidan in present-day Orange County, Virginia. He died before July 1746 at Germantown, Fauquier Co. (now), VA.
Note: Left no male heirs. His four daughters were proved by a deed in Prince William County, VA, 28 July 1746, in which Stephen Hatzenbiller, Jacob Neuschwanger, and Christopher Windle, all of Frederick County, deeded to their brother and sister, Henry Otterback and Agnes Otterback, the land at Germantown which had belonged to Melchior Brumback (Prince William Co. Deed Book "I", p. 150).
