    The Raymond M. Bell Anthology

    Hewitt-Huyett-Hujet and Related Families of Washington County (Part 3)

    The name HUJET is found in Rheinland in 1670 and in Dutch Glory in 180 4. HUYETT is the spelling in Maryland and in Pennsylvania, except fo r Washington County (Pa), where it evolved into HEWITT. There are man y other spellings, for example, Huet, Huit.
    The earliest date is August 20-1697, when Peter Hujet (born c1670, so n of John Hujet, miller at Brucken, was married to Margaret Bruch. Kar l Langler says that Peter was born at Abentheuer, which is near Brucke n. In 1719 Peter Hujet with 6 children was living at Achtelsbach, als o near Brucken. These villages are in present Kreis Birkenfeld, Rheinl and, Germany. Peter's oldest son, Sebastian, may have died young. Hi s other two sons went to Pennsylvania - Peter in 1737,
    Franz Carl in 1738.
    Peter settled in Exeter Twp, Berks Co, getting a land warrant April 5- 1743. His name is on tax list 1753-1766. The last record of Peter is h is naturalization (PA II 2 396) "Peter Huett of Exeter" April 10 -1766 . His name is not on the 1767 list. His children stayed in Berks Count y. No estate has been found.
    Apparently Franz Carl died in the 1750s, possibly in Philadelphia, whe re he was living 1738-39 1746-48. His name is not on the 1756 tax list s of Berks County or of Philadelphia. No record has been found in Mary land. His children by his first marriage went to Berks County, befor e going to Washington County, Maryland. Perhaps all his children wen t to Berks. Ludwig was taxed in Exeter 1760-68, Philip 1768. Elizabet h Hewitt married Jacob Leffler in Berks County early in 1762.
    Franz Carl's children went to Washington Co, Md about 1769. (There i s a town of Huyett in that county.) Ludwig stayed in Maryland; Philip , Peter, Elizabeth went to Washington County Pa about 1774. Nicholas w ent to Huntingdon County, Pa. In 1774 Ludwig Huyett bought land in Mar yland from Jacob Miller before Jacob migrated to the Dutch Fork settle ment in Donegal Twp, Washington Co. Jacob Leffler was a neighbor of Ja cob Miller in Donegal.

    Franz was named for his grandfather Franz Bruch, Harvey T Huyett in HU YETT FAMILY IN AMERICA says that Franz was brother of Peter (b 1702) a nd that Franz's son, Ludwig, lived in Maryland. In Maryland the name s of Ludwig, Philip and Peter are together in church records, sponsori ng each other's children. The names of Ludwig Huyett and Jacob Leffler , brother-in-law, are together, too. It seems certain that Philip an d Peter were sons of Franz Carl.
