Beginning in the year 1800, families from the former Bavarian Palatinate settled in Probfeld. Seven families lived there in 1808, a total of 29 persons (1804). Besides cultivating rye and some wheat, the main crop was potatoes. In 1804, a distillery formed part of the main farm. About 50 years later, within the framework of a mass emigration, 25 persons from Probfeld (parish of Karlskron) alone, emigrated to Canada.
