The Ancestors of Mathilde Marie Elisabeth EGGERS
224 Hans PÖHLS/PÖHLSEN. (Parents: 448--Bartold PÖHLS + 449--Catharina (maiden name unknown)) Hans was born in 1629 in Barkhorst, Holstein. He was a farmer, farmhand, and renter or hired hand in Schossin, Mecklenburg during much of his adult life. He married Anna SCHMITT on 10 November 1656 in Schossin, Mecklenburg. They had the following children:
225 Anna SCHMITT. (Parents: 450--Heinrich SCHMITT + ?) Anna was born in 1630 on Fehmarn Island, which lies a short distance off the eastern coast of Holstein. She and a sister may have fled Fehmarn to escape a witch hunt. She lived much of her adult life in Schossin, Mecklenburg.
226 Andreas (VON DER) WETTERING. (Parents: Unknown) Andreas was born before 1661, which is when he married for the first time. He died 18 January 1713. By trade, he was a baker in the city of Gadebusch, Mecklenburg. He married Ilsabe KAVEN on 9 July 1666 at the Lutheran Church at Gadebusch. They had the following children:
The parents of Andreas (VON DER) WETTERING are unknown. Unfortunately, the Baptism Register for the Lutheran parish of Gadebusch, which goes back to the 1620s, does not identify the children being baptized prior to 1650 (or thereabouts). Consequently, his parents may never be known. The most likely candidates appear to be Andrewes WETRINCK and his wife, Engel GARENS, who married in 1632.
The (VON DER) WETTERING family appears to have been fairly prominent in Gadebusch between the 1650s and the 1750s. One member of the family, Johann (VON DER) WETTERING, who died in 1668, was a Mayor [Bürgermeister] of the city, as was another Johann (VON DER) WETTERING, who died in 1758. Yet another Johann (VON DER) WETTERING, who died in 1697, was the Gadebusch city magistrate [Stadtvogt], while a Jacob (VON DER) WETTERING was a Lutheran pastor who was occasionally mentioned in Gadebusch church records during the second half of the 1600s (he was not one of the local Gadebusch pastors, however).
228 Matthias ROBRAN. (Parents: Unknown) Matthias’ birthplace and date, as well as his death place and date are unknown. Based on the year in which he married (see below), he was probably born sometime in the 1620s. He was a bakery worker and is known to have lived in Rehna, Mecklenburg, during much of his adult life. He married Anna PRÜSSE in the parish of Lübeck's St. Marien Church on Monday, 13 September 1649. They had the following children:
Circumstantial evidence indicates that Matthias may be the son of Jochim ROBRAN (born circa 1595 in Pogez, Mecklenburg) and his wife Anna BARKE. The couple, who married on 22 October 1620 at the Lutheran Church in Carlow, Mecklenburg, had at least two sons, including one they named Ties (short for Matthias), who was born on 2 October 1621. Jochim was a son of Jochim ROBRAN (born circa 1550 in Pogez and died 19 January 1615 in Pogez), the proprietor of Farm VII in Pogez (after 1581). The elder Jochim was a son of Hinrich ROBRADE (born circa 1520), the proprietor of Farm I in Pogez. Hinrich, in turn, was the son of Marquardt ROBRANNE (born circa 1490), also the proprietor of Farm I in Pogez.
229 Anna PRÜSSE. (Parents: Unknown) Anna’s birthplace and date, as well as her death place and date are unknown. Based on the year in which she married, she was probably born in the 1620s. Based on the place in which she married, she may have been from Lübeck. According to their marriage record, she and Matthias married at PRÜSSE's house on "Klockheidestraße" in Lübeck. It is reported, however, that there never has been a street with that name in Lübeck. It is possible the marriage occurred at No. 228 on Klockgeterstrate (also Klogketerstrate, Klockgeterstrahtte, etc.). That was the home of Hans PRÜSSE from 1647 until sometime before or during 1650. Klockgeterstrate is now known as Glockengießerstraße, and the north side of the street belongs to the parish of St. Marien Church.
230 Herman OLLROGGE. (Parents: Unknown) Herman’s birthplace and date are unknown. Since he first married in 1644, it is likely that he was born sometime in the 1620s (or earlier). It is also likely that he was born in Schönberg, Mecklenburg. He died in 1699, probably in Schönberg, and was buried on 5 February 1699. He was a Bürgermeister [Mayor] of the city of Schönberg. Based on entries in the Schönberg Bürgerbuch [citizens' record book] identifying him as Bürgermeister and the tenure of other mayors of the city, it is likely that he was Bürgermeister from 1666 to 1667 and then from 1683 until his death in 1699. Prior to becoming Mayor, he may have been a city alderman beginning sometime around 1657, which is when he began appearing in the Bürgerbuch as a witness to the settlement of city accounts. He may have been a window maker by trade.
Herman was first selected as Mayor of Schönberg on 1 March 1666. The entry in the Bürgerbuch reporting his selection reads as follows:
Bey Regierung des Durchleuchtigsten Fürsten und Herrn Herr Christians Lovis, Hertzoge zu Mecklenburg, Fürsten zu Wenden, Schwerin und Ratzeburg, auch Grafen zu Schwerin, der Lande Rostogk und Stargardt Herr, ist Herman Olderogge in Sel. Berendt Pahltzowen Stelle zu einem Burgmeister über die Burger in Schönbergk von mir entsbenanten auf der Burger anhalten erwehlet, mit dem Versprechen, wan die Bürger sich nicht gebuerlich anschicken, besondern in billigen Dingen wiedersetzen sollten, daß ihnen allemal auf gebührliches ansuchen die Hand gebotten und die wiederspenstige zu gehörender und verdienter straffe gezogen werden sollen. Weil auch die Burger angehalten, daß auch diejenigen, so zwar auf den Dörffern wohnen, aber gleich den Schönebergern ihre Handtwerker treiben und mit den Schönbergern sich mit in Ambt und gilde sitzen und geben gleich denen, so sich in die Stadt setzen, hinfüro die Bürgerschaft gewinnen mögen. Als soll dieserwegen mit den Zunften oder Embtern geredet werden, daß sie hinfüro niemandt mit in die Embter nehmen, Er habe denn vorher die Burgerschaft gewonnen. Geschehen auf dem Fürstlichen Hause Schöneberg den Ersten Marty Anno 1666. Peter Flugge.
[Translation: Under the reign of the Serene Prince and Lord Mr. Christian Louis, Duke of Mecklenburg, Prince of Wenden, Schwerin and Ratzeburg, also Count of Schwerin, Lord of the Rostock and Stargardt regions, Herman Olderogge was chosen by me -- whose name is mentioned below -- on behalf of the citizens to be the mayor of the citizens of Schönberg, taking the place of the late Berendt Pahltzow, promising to be fair to people who behave and to punish those citizens who won't behave. People who live in the villages but do trade and craftsman's work with (for?) the citizens of Schönberg and have official posts and are in guilds with the citizens and contribute the same amount of money should become citizens when working for (in?) the city. So henceforth nobody shall be appointed to an office until he has become a citizen. Done at the Prince's house at Schönberg. 1 March 1666. Peter Flugge]
The ancestors of Herman are currently unknown. It is reported that, at around the time he first became Mayor, he was living on Hof IV (Farm No. IV) in Schönberg. That was one of the 12 original farmsteads in the city of Schönberg. The first “Ollrogge” in possession of that farm was Hans OLDEROGGE, who held it from 1608 until his death in 1618. A son, also named Hans, held the farm from 1633 until his death in 1642. It is likely that Herman was a son or nephew of the younger Hans, and a grandson of the elder one.
Herman first married Elisabeth SCHULTZE on 25 June 1644 at the Lutheran Church at Schönberg. Elisabeth died in 1645, probably in Schönberg, and was buried on 8 June 1645. Herman and Elisabeth had the following children:
Herman second married Veronica (“Froneke”) WISSEMANN on 6 October 1646 at the Lutheran Church in Schönberg. Herman and Froneke had the following children:
Herman third married Anna MARTENS on 28 November 1682 at the Lutheran Church at Schönberg. They are not known to have had any children.
240 Hinrich RICKHOFF. (Parents: 480--Gerike RICKHOFF + 481--Catharina HEIDEBEY) Hinrich was born in about 1637 in Groß Rünz, Mecklenburg. He died on 19 December 1693 in Groß Rünz. He worked Farm No. I in Groß Rünz from 1669 to 1693. He was also the village headman [Schultze] in Groß Rünz. He was a Lutheran and served as a member of the parish council [i.e., a Kirchenjurat]of the Lutheran Church in Demern, Mecklenburg. He married Catharina LÜTKE on 20 October 1657 at that church. They had the following children:
241 Catharina LÜTKE. (Parents: 482--Gosselke LÜTKE + 483--Anna (maiden name unknown)) Catharina was born in about 1637 in Groß Rünz, Mecklenburg. She died on 7 December 1693, also in Groß Rünz. She was the heiress [Anerbin] to Farm No. I in Groß Rünz. She was also a Lutheran.
242 Hinrich HOLST. (Parents: 484--Hans HOLST + 485--Margareta KAVEN) Hinrich was born in about 1625 in Groß Rünz, Mecklenburg. He died on 11 May 1686, probably in Groß Rünz. He was the proprietor of Farm No. VIII in Groß Rünz. He was also a Lutheran. Hinrich married Magreta (“Grete”) AREND on 23 October 1653 at the Lutheran Church in Demern, Mecklenburg. They had the following children:

She died on 15 January1661 in either Pogez or in Groß Rünz , Mecklenburg. She appears to have lived much of her adult life in Groß Rünz. She was a Lutheran.
244 Adolph OTTO. (Parents: 488--Bartholdt OTTE + ?) Adolph was born in about 1643, probably in Warnekow, Mecklenburg. He was baptized on 2 July 1643 at the Lutheran Church in Rehna, Mecklenburg. He married Catharina MÖLLER. They had the following children:

246 Peter KÖHLER. (Parents: 492--Hanß KÖHLER + 493--Anna (maiden name unknown)) Peter was born in Holstein, and he died in Woitendorf, Mecklenburg. It is reported that his churchbook death record includes the following remark: "wurde ohne Predigt beerdigt, weil er ein gotlos leben geführet" [Translation: was without burial service, because he led a godless life]. He was a master brick/tile maker [Zieglermeister] and administrator [Verwalter] at Woitendorf, Mecklenburg, where a brick/tile works appears to have been located.
