These were the most important of the early German set tiers and they proved such law-abiding substantial citizens that not only did Penn urge more of their countrymen and people from the Palatinate and Switzer land to follow them, but Queen Anne, of England, paid the passage of nearly four thousand Palatines and Swiss to America, and King George I, impressed with their excellent qualities, offered Germans land in Pennsylvania, 50 acres to each_family in fee simple and enough for families.
