Hi I'm new to this site wonder if you can help please
From my recherch I found my G/Granddad born brelin 1816 He went by the name John Gottlieb Hermann!!!(Hoffke) he was a profesor of music
I can find three children Dorothea and louis on 1861 cencus, Theodore through other relaions.
The only other information I can find is on the 1841 census where I find a John Gottlieb Hermann Hoffke (music proff) with wife Louisa and son Theordore (forn Parts)
Louisa passed away in 1958 as far as I can tell, and John remarried in 1859 without the hoffke part of the name
I Cant find anymore Hoffke
What I need to know, is this the same person did he move from Germany to France then to the uk if so did he change his name for a reason? I just cant work it out
Theordore 1838 France
