Ludwick Roderick

LUDWICK RODERICK was born 1723 in Leiselheim, (Worms), Germany, and died 1797 in Washington County, Maryland. He married Catherine ----. In the 1790 Maryland Census, Ludwick had in his household 2 males older than 16 and three females. It is believed that Ludwig moved to Frederick County, Maryland, in 1752 or shortly thereafter. He probably rented or farmed on shares at first. His first land purchase was on June 16, 1762 There were many subsequent purchase and sales, the last being in 1771. He signed the deeds, Ludwig Rothrock, but was variously recorded in the records as Rodrock, Rodruck, Roadrock, Roadrok, Rodrack, and Roderick.

On 23 September 1762 Ludwig Roderick, German Protestants in Frederick County, come into Court and in pursuance of an Act of Parliament made and passed in the 13th year of the Reign of his late Majesty, King George the Second, Instituted, an Act for naturalizing such foreign protestant and others therein mentioned as are settled or shall settle in any of his Majesty's Colonies in America pray to have the several Oaths appointed by the said Act administered to them respecting and having produced the following certificates of their having received the Sacrament. Ludwig Roderick swore to being a member of the Baptist Congregation in Frederick County, 6 August 1762 and had received the Holy Lord's Supper the way of the Protestant Church.

Lodowick Rodrack on 29 January 1759 bought 100 acres on the Big Conewago, Berwick Township, York County, Pennsylvania . On 16 June 1762 Lodowick Roderick bought Stony Hill, Frederick County, Maryland. Ludwick had land patented 13 December 1775 a tract on Maryland and another called Grandfathers Gift. In 1776, Washington County, Maryland, was erected out of Frederick County and all subsequent records on Ludwig are in Washington County. His lands were in Weverton, Maryland which is near Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, just inside present Washington County. He wrote his will 20 June 1785 but lived until 1797. His wife is mentioned in the will. The will was probated 28 October 1797. There is circumstantial evidence of another son, Benjamin, born in 1788. Because Benjamin was born after the will was written, he was not mentioned on the records of the estate. The manner in which Ludwig's estate was settled confirms the possibility of a child or children besides the ten mentioned in the will.
