Includes indexes.

This book "is based upon the 1693 census of the Swedes on the Delaware, a census taken to document the colonists' argument to Swedish authorities that there remained a sizable group of Swedes in America who were worthy of help in the form of new pastors for their churches and new religious books in the Swedish language" -- Intro.

"The list did not include all persons of Swedish origin then living in the vicinity of the Delaware river. Many who had migrated to Maryland no longer associated with the Swedish churches on the Delaware. Others, whose names appear in the church records of Wicaco and Crane Hook, 1697-1699, apparently were not active churchgoers in 1693 when both churches were without a minister"-- p. 18.

The Swedish log church at Wicaco (now Gloria Dei in Philadelphia) served Swedes living in the Philadelphia area from Chester County to Marcus Hook and from Pennsauken Creek in Burlington County to the southern boundary of Gloucester County in New Jersey. The Swedish log church at Crane Hook (now in Wilmington, Delaware) served Swedes living in New Castle County, Delaware; Cecil County, Maryland; and Salem County, New Jersey.
