Germany/Prussia -- STARKE family
« on: Friday 22 June 18 10:27 BST (UK) »
Hello all!
I'm trying to find out some more information about my Starke(/Starck/Starkė/Stark) family. The furthest back I can trace them is to Clemens Starke, born circa 1775. His son was Johann Joachim Starke, married to Marie Dorothea Walther, and born in Dretzel, Saxony-Anhalt, 7 May 1799. Johann and Marie's son was Johann Friedrich Starke, married to Marie Elizabeth Menz, and he was born in Tucheim, Saxony-Anhalt in 1831. His son, Albert Friechrich Starke came out to Australia on the "Esther" in 1876. I know quite a lot about Albert, his voyage, his three siblings who also came to Australia (illegally stowed away!), and his descendants, but I know very little about the Starkes in Germany/Prussia.
From what I have learnt from another source the Starkes lived in these nations as they changed:
Clemens Starke - Duchy of Magdeburg
Johann Joachim Starke - same
Johann Friedrich Starke - Province of Saxony (Prussia)
Albert Friedrich Starke - same
I'd appreciate any help you may have to offer! I've included a family chart so it may be easier to understand the generations.
JONES, HALL, CHACE, WRIGHT, CROCKER, NEPEAN, LAWRANCE, THORPE, ELLIOT, MORAN, all in South Australia. STARKE, SCHOLZ/SHOLZ in Prussia and South Australia. WATERS, FOWLER, INCE, MEARS, LLOYD, TRUSTER and COOPER in England (mainly Surrey). FRANKORT, LEUNISSEN, MUIJRERS, BROURERS, GORISSEN, DAMOISEAUX and LAHAYE/LAHIAJE in Limburg, Netherlands.
