Herman ALMEROTH, born Germany c1762, married in London 1793, died in London 1812 aged 50.

Herman was my 4xgt grandfather, but after 20yrs of research I still do not know where he was born. He came to London where he worked as a sugarbaker, eventually owning and running his own small refinery.

If it helps, he worked for/with Jost Heinrich MUHM (1746-1828) from Gleichen, Hessen (Henry Mum and his brother-in-law Henry Martin were executors to Herman's will); and there may also be an Almeroth/Muhm connection in Schwabendorf, Hessen. A late uncle told me that Herman was from Saxony (might this be Lower Saxony from where many sugarbakers came), though I would not wish this to restrict searches elswhere in Germany.
I have an extensive Muhm family tree, but there's no mention of Almeroth.

Thank you.

Geboren: ca. 1762 in Deutschalnd
Geheiratet: 1793 in London, England
Gestorben: 1812 in London

Herman war mein 4*Ur-grossvater, aber nach 20 Jahre Forschens, weiss ich immer noch nicht, wo er geboren wurde.
Er kam nach England, wo er als Zuckerbäcker (*) arbeitete. Zuletzt besass und betrieb er seine eigene kleine Zukerraffinerie.

Falls es hilft: er arbeitete für/mit Jost Heinrich MUHM (1746-1828) aus Gleichen, Hessen.
(Henry Mum und sein Schwager Henry Martin waren Hermans Testamentvollstrecker. )
Eventuell gibt es auch eine Almeroth/Muhm Verbindung zu Schwabendorf, Hessen.
Ein Onkel erzählte, dass Herman aus Sachsen (evtl. Niedersachsen?) kam, wie auch viele Zuckerbäcker,
aber das soll nicht das Forschen anderswo in Deutschland ausschliessen.

Ich habe einen umfangreichen MUHM-Stammbaun, aber dort wird Almeroth nicht erwähnt.
