Re: john frederick beuth London
It is quite possible that one of my distant ancestors was related to John Frederick Beuth. As far as I know there were three brothers Beuth (and one sister), Elisabeth, one of them was Ferdinand (born in 1781 in Germany, lived 72) and hew was a prominent figure in Prussia (there is a street of his name in Berlin), another one lived in England (although had no children) and the third one was in Moscow with Napoleon. When going back in 1812 he stayed in Poland and started the Polish branch of the family (his grand daughter was my grandgrandmother). I think that is quite possible that he was in fact related to John Frederick. Unfortunately, I have information of the Polish Beuths only.
