    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.

  • Notes 

    • [Benjestorf Family History, Schneehage].

      It is not clear whether Heinrich was the father of the Heinrich Benjestorf who was born in 1866 and eventually inherited the volmeierhof Röhr.

      Heinrich was born (in Osterwald?) on 31 July 1798. He married Marie Dorothee Rathe in1828.
      He was probably the heir to the Benjestorf Volmeierhof.
      Johann died on 15 August 1874.
