    2-4. Benjestorf
    2-4. Benjestorf
    Johann Heinrich Pfennigstorf [or possibly Pfennigsdorf], my great-great-great-great grandfather, was a shepherd in the vicinity of Barsinghausen, in the Electorate of Hannover in the middle of the 18th century. The Pfennigstorf family did not originate in Hannover, but probably emigrated from the area east of the Elbe River which formed the eastern border of Hannover. This area was in the High German language region. Johann Heinrich Pfennigstorf married Ilse Marie Lampen, my great-great-great-great grandmother, on 10 July, 1768, in Hannover-Linden. They had at least one son, also called Johann Heinrich Pfennigstorf.

    2-6. Benjestorf - Origin and Evolution of a Family
    The name “Benjestorf” was never heard of in the old days among the families of Lower Saxony. It’s origins lie neither in the land of Hannover nor in Lower Saxony. It has existed for only some 250 years in the vicinity of Hannover, and less than 100 years [as of 1961] in Canada & North America.

    In many, in fact in most cases, one can recognize from a name which part of Germany it came from, where it’s original homeland was, and especially with a name, the language & country it came from.

  • Notes 
    • [Birth/baptism Record of Ernst Heinrich Daniel Benjestorf ~ from Willi Benjestorf]


      The existence of Carl Benjestorf disproves Heinrich Schneehage's theory about the origin of the Benjestorf name! It also casts some doubt on the connection to Johann Heinrich Pfennigsdorff.
