Friedrick von Grotthaus Coat of Arms
We visited the lutheran church in Bramsche (a part of the city Lingen) there we found the epithaph of Cord Grotthaus + 1617 it is a very interesting story about him, because he was responsible for Die Schlacht im Geehn. 300 farmers were killed at this fight.
Two old buildings still exist on the farmland of Cord Grotthaus + 1617.
He was married with a women from the town Grimmersum which is near to the city of Emden 150 km north of Bramsche. This lady owned a castle Mittelburg at the town Groothusen and her husband Cord Grotthaus got it when married. We found his name and his chrest on the church tower near a very nice clock.
Taken at the church at Altenoythe, 60 km south of Buttforde. Here we found the Ephitaph of Anna Judith von Grothaus married with von Kobrinck.
Taken at the church of Buttforde (same area) where we saw the painting at the praying chair (german word is Kanzel) The painting is the chrest of Christoffer Grothaus dated 1655 It is indicated that he is from Ruhenthal (Which was the first estate in Curland (our baltic line)
