Zielke. Spitzhut, Kaethler, Families, Danzig

I am English and live in the UK. However, I have a Zielke ancestor who originated from Danzig. My Father's maternal Great Grandfather was Christian Ferdinand Zielke, born 9 December 1839, in Danzig.

However, my Father's Great Great Grandfather was also Christian F Zielke from Danzig, but I have been unable to track a Date of Birth for him, or trace the Zielke family any further than this. Thus, I assume that he was born sometime before 1809 ? (As I know he married A Kaethler, who was also born in Danzig in 1809) ?

I am also researching Christian F Zielke's wife, A Kaetheler, (1809-75), who's parents were Johann Kaethler and Maximiliane Spitzhut ?

Any information on the ancestry of these families would be very much appreciated .
