Palatines

Palatines These were Protestant refugees from the lower Rhine Valley (the German-French Palatinate, or border region) to the thirteen colonies. Substantial numbers first began arriving around 1710, when about 3,000 came to N.Y. and 600 settled in N.C. They comprised about two-thirds of the Pennsylvania Dutch, and a large minority came as redemptioners.
