Phillip Peter Scholl took the Oath of Allegiance in Philadelphia, PA, April 1764. He was at that time a resident of Maxatawny Twp, Berks CO. PA. Phillip, and his second wife, Elizabeth Catherine, and at least two children are said to have sailed to America no later than the summer of 1750. His daughter, Maria Magdalena Scholl, was baptised 14 April 1751, New Hanover Lutheran Church in Falkner's Swamp, Montgomery County, PA. He is said to have died in either York County, PA where his son Phillip Scholl resided or possibly in Maryland where his son John Stephen Scholl resided. Phillip received a Land Patent which states: "Whereas upon the application and request of Phillip Scholl of Reading in the County of Berks in the year 1751, we did permit him to take up a certain Lot of ground situate in our said Town of Reading, marked in the general plan of the said Town No. 346, in order to build thereon one substantial dwelling house of twenty feet square at least, with good brick or stone chimney, and to improve the same within the space of three years then next, agreeable to the said plan and regulations fixt for the building the said town, under the yearly rent of seven Shillings Sterling money of Great Britain to us and our heirs forever. And the said Lot was accordingly surveyed and laid out for the said Phillip Scholl as by your survey thereof appears: And Whereas the said Phillip Scholl having since erected on the said Lot a dwelling house of the dimensions and in manner aforesaid, he now humbly requests us to grant unto him our Patent of confirmation for the said Lot of ground, etc." In 1755 he purchased 129 acres and 96 perches in Berkshire Twp, Northampton CO. PA from John Yeakle. He sold this same land, 5 Jan 1757 to George Welkker of Upper Hanover Twp., Philadelphia CO. PA for the amount of 54 pounds, two shillings, two pence. In this deed Phillip was called a miller. A short time later on 7 May 1757 his name was on a petition along with other people living within a four mile radius of Fort Franklin in Brunswick Township, requesting that the fort be made better to protect them from invasion of Indians. Phillip purchased Lot 285 in Reading, PA. At this time he was living in Exeeter, Berks CO. PA. He purchased 130 acres in Alsace Twp., Berks CO. PA on 20 Dec 1763. He purchased 47 acres, 56 perches in Maxatawny, 24 Jan 1764. This was sold 5 July 1766. On 25 July 1768 Phillip sold 131 acres in Alsace Twonship. Phillip purchased 100 acres and a grist mill on 22 January 1771 from John Yeakle and his wife Susanna. This was in Marlborough Township. He sold the 100 acres he had purchased from John and Susanna on 28 Aug 1773 to Adam Whitman and John Bishop, both of Berks CO. PA. On that same day in August 1773, he sold 70 acres, 53 perches in Maxatawny Township.
