In 1753, Christopher Sturtevant , a Gentleman, of Norwell, Nottinghamshire, and later Walworth, London, had a son James. This son became a merchant, initially in business as such at Manchester, then by 1798 at Hamburg, later moving to Fallersleben (near Brunswick), which was at that time in the Kingdom of Hanover in Germany, where he was buried after his death on 5.7.1826. He married a German woman, Frederica Christiana Stegemann of Leipzig, and had at least two children, Richard Theodore and Elizabeth (or Elirabish?), and possibly a third, Henry [Johannes?] who married in Whitechapel, London in 1851. James died at Fallersleben on 5.7.1826, and his will was proved in England as he had property in this country. His wife was buried at Fallersleben in 1853.

(Personal note from Geoff Sturtivant: I recently stayed in a hotel at Oschersleben, between Hanover and Berlin, and the reservation was written as Störtwant! Is this a real German name, and does it have any connection??)
