I am researching my family history and my 2nd great grandfather was Heinrich Dederich Ritterhoff from Larman. I would like to know more about him and his family and where they came from, and why he left Germany for England. From what I know so far he was a shoemaker. If anyone know where I could find such information I'd be most grateful to know. I am also tracing the other side of my family through Carl Wilhelm Cornelius Pistorius from Thuringen. But I know little about what he did.
If anyone can help or advise in any way, please do get in contact, it would be very much appreciated!
