  • Notes 

    • [Heinrich Schneehage Benjestorf Family History][Barsinghausen Kirchbuch].


      Johann was a shepherd from Wennigsen in the vicinity of Barsinghausen, near Hannover in the middle of the 18th century. He was married to Ilse Marie Lampen. They had at least one son, a>
      lso called Johann Heinrich Benjestörp (Pfennigstorf?) who was my great-great-great grandfather.
      Note: Heinrich Schneehage theorized that his name was originally "Pfennigsdorf" and that he originated in a Hochtdeutsch language area. This was probably because he received a transcript of the>
      birth records from Barsinghausen which showed that as his name. The actual name in the Kirchbuch fo rthe marriage is Benjestörp. (BENJESTÖRP may have been a Lindener Platdeutsch form of Pfennigst>
      orf].
      ****
      Copies from the Hannover Kichenbuchamt archives provided by Willi Benjestorf show his name as "Benjestörp".

      to me

      Dear Cousin Don,



      I found in the “Kirchenbuchamt Hannover” in the church records new information

      about our common ancestors “Benjestorf”.



      1. Johann Heinrich Benjestorf/Pfennigstorf was born 30.10.1768 in Barsinghausen.

      (Picture 1)y



      2. The father from Nr.1 is Johann Henny(Heinrich) Benjestörp/Pfennigstorf

      He is born 27.06.1745 in Mulje(Müllingen, 20 km from Hannover)

      (Picture 2)

      He married 10.07.1768 in Hannover-Linden Ilse Catarine Marie Lampen (Picture 3)



      3. The father from Nr. 2 is Johann Dietrich Pfennigstorf, born 9.06.1706

      in Mulje(Müllingen). (Picture 4)

      He has 3 siblings: Engel Margarete Pfennigstorf, born 31.Dez. 1699

      Hans Christian Pfennigstorf, born 2.May 1696

      Henni Jacob Pfennigstorf, born 19. Aug. 1695

      Father of this four children is Henni(Heinrich) Pfennigstorf, born about 1665,

      the mother is not mentioned.



      Nor any other information: The Names Benjestorf/Benjestörp/Benningstorf/Pfennigstorf

      are often in and around Hannover. Not like my uncle Heinrich Schneehage writes, from

      eastern Germany.





      Many greetings from your cousin
