Philipp Heinrich Weiland, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the ship Die Neue Freiheit von Bremen under the command of Skipper Steingrawer.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Warenburg on 12 May 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 41.
Christina Philippina Weiland, presumed to be a daughter of Philipp Heinrich Weiland, is recorded on the 1798 census of Warenburg in Household No. Wr121.
In 1791, Johann Hartmann Weiland, presumed to be a son of Philipp Heinrich Weiland, moved from Warenburg to Dinkel.
Hartmann Weiland from Warenburg and his wife are recorded on the 1798 census of Dinkel in Household No. Dn45.
Hartmann Weiland is recorded on the 1811 census of Dinkel in Household No. 46 along with a note that he relocated to the colony of Straub [year not recorded].
The death of Hartmann Weiland in 1806 is recorded on the 1811 census of Straub in Household No. 60 along with a note that he had arrived in Straub from Dinkel in 1806. Hartmann Weiland does not appear to have had any surviving male heirs.
The 1767 census records that Philipp Heinrich Weiland came from the German village of Serchsdorf in the region of Nassau.
There do not appear to be any surviving male lines of this Weiland family among the Volga German colonies.
