I am slowly gathering information on the Hitzlers and am writing a web page for my website. So far it includes the following information and I will add yours if I may.

The Hitzler family intermarried with the Galls in British Guiana. The Hitzlers appear to have first settled in St.Martin before moving to Demerara. The only member of this family to hold public office in Demerara was James Shanks Hitzler.


John was born in St.Martin and married Eliosha SHANKS in Demerara in 1824. It seems likely that James Shanks Hitzler was their son.

James married Clara Augusta GALL [b.1845] in 1862 in Demerara.{not confirmed} He was appointedRegistrar of Demerara & Essequebo on 18th June 1867 {The Edinburgh Gazette, June 18, 1867}
He died at Brickdam on 15th May 1876 {British Guiana Colonists Index} Clara Augusta remarried in England.

Sarah Halmon Margaret HITZLER 1808-1887

Sarah was born in St.Martin and married Henry Beckles GALL in Demerara in 1827. After he died in BArbados in 1862 she moved to Canada where she died in 1887.

Henrietta Susanne Cunnagunda HITZLER
Henrietta married Mr Haley in 1819 in Demerara. It is possible that she was the sister of Sarah and John.
