I have a lot of unconnected information on Schaufler or Schufler families 1850-1900. There seem to be only about three branches, all possibly linked as decendants of one family which arrived from Germany. Has anyone already researched them or found a connection?

Hi Deborah,
Good to hear from you. I do not have any information on Elise Schaufler but she may be Elizabeth Schaufler, born 1865 in Clerkenwell, daughter of John Schaufler, a tailor, and Anna Marie Schaufler, maiden name Grap or Crafe. The age seems right. Anna Marie was John Schaufler's first wife and I am descended from him and his second wife Tryphena
I haven't found Elizabeth in the 1881 or 2001 census but her elder sister Anna Christine is in both the 1891 census and the 1901 census as an unmarried parlourmaid. Does any of this seem familiar. Do you have any further information such as a copy of your GGM's marriage certificate or the marriage register reference? What was your GGF's name? The marriage may be in FreeBMD under his name. You mentioned the marriage as being in Stepney. That is near where John & Tryphena lived at Mile End and there was also the family in Mile End of Frederick & Hanora Schaufler. He was a butcher and they married in 1884. Elise could have been his sister. Do you have any access to the 17 census records for Schaufler in the ancestry.com 1891 census records. I am not a subscriber so they are locked for me. Perhaps some one else who reads this could check them out and forward the contents to you and me.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Regards, Brian Williams.

Hi Brian
Thanks for your reply. I do have a copy of my GGM's birth cert: Elise Schaufler and Andrew Berger were married on 14 Feb 1892 (Valentine's Day!) Their address was given as 119 Broad Street and the fathers were John Schaufler and Jacob Berger.
I have been told that Elise was born in 1865 and died in 1912 but have no documentation. I have found various bits on Free BMD (where Elise is listed as Elise Scha_eler under marriages Mar 1892) and familysearch (some egs below).
Elise and Andrew had 2 children: Andrew John (my GF, I have the birth cert copy) and Elsie, b. 1894, d. 1921 (no documentation) and lived at 81 Ben Jonson Road, Mile End. I also found an Elsie Marie Berger in the births Sept 1894 freebmd listings.
Other findings include a christening for an Elizabeth Schaufler on 11 Jun 1865 at Pentonville, F. John Schaufler M. Marie (IGI batch no C040941).
I understand that the Bergers emigrated from Wurttemberg, Germany around 1880 so the Schauflers may have also have emigrated from Germany.

Hi deborah,
It looks like your Elise is my Elizabeth so we share a GGGF in John Schaufler. She was born as Elizabeth, 5 May 1865, at 22½ Rodney St, Clerkenwell, and her birth certificate reference is Clerkenwell, 1865, 2nd quarter (April to June),
1b, 591 so you should be able to order a copy.
Like you, I have also found the Christening record.
Her father John was born in Germany in 1818 or 1819. For the birth of her elder sister Anna Christine in 1862, he gave his first name as Johann, also see the 1881 census under the name of John Schufler (without the a) aged 62, living with his new family in Mile End. He obviously left Marie soon after Elizabeth was born because my GGM, Rosetta, was born in Mile End in November 1867.
Hope this is all useful. good hunting!
Regards, Brian.

Brian, My Grandmother's maiden name was Regina Schaufler (b. 1912). Her father's name was Theodore Schaufler, and he married Elizabeth Kummer. They lived in Philadelphia, but I know they immigrated from Germany at some point. Do you know anything about them?
Thanks,
Judy

Hi Victoria
Great to hear from you. Rosetta Clarke was my grandmother so that makes us cousins. I have a lot of information for you and you will be able to fill in some gaps for me. If is OK with you, I will contact you on your email address since I can then attach my information which I keep in Excel spreadsheets and Word documents.
