Migration of the Trancke family to the New World and Oceana
German settlers were among the most common to come to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. Poverty and religious persecution drove many Bavarians to make this long trek. tenant farmers were also enticed by the prospect of owning land. From east to west, these German immigrants populated the United States, settling in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada also provided homes to many. Early settlers bearing the Trancke surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Christoph Trenkel, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1738. Stephen Trenkel also came in that year, as did Christophel Trenkle at the age of 48. Johannes Tranck arrived in Philadelphia in 1750.
