Brunnholtz, Peter a Lutheran minister, was born at Nubil, in the principality of Glucksburg, in the duchy of Schleswig. He was ordained April 12, 1744, by the consistorium at Wernigerode, and immediately started to America in answer to a call from Dr. Fanche of Halle. He arrived January 26, 1745. He was appointed second minister in the churches in which Dr. Muhleinberg had hitherto labored alone — namely, Philadelphia, Germantown, Providence, and New Hanover. In 1751 he resigned his charge of the Germantown Church, and gave his whole time to the congregation in Philadelphia, where he continued until he died, July 7, 1758. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, IX, 1:16; Evangelical Review, 7:152.
