Weise, Heinrich (Henry) Vorbrugge, S-H
Heinrich Wiese circa 1796 from Vorbrugge,Holstein, was godfather to one of my Ratjen/Rathjen ancestors (Hans, the legitimate son of labourer in Vorbrugge Ehler Ratjen and his wife Catharina Margaretha born Normann. Born 12 Feb 1796, baptized at Kellinghusen, February 16 1796). No idea why this man was a godfather except he must have some relationship to child Hans Rathjen. The other godparents were Paul Rathjen from Vorbrugge, and Johann Ratjen from Humfeldt (Homfeld). I suspect Heinrich Weise may have married a Ratjen/Rathjen. Any clues much appreciated.
