Oldest ancestor known by name

The oldest known ancestor of the Süsens-Family is
Frerick Eggeshusen (* about 1490) from Hollwege/Westerstede

The last name Eggeshusen is already named in the Oldenburger Salbuch from 1428 in Hollwege/Westerstede.

Most probably in the beginning of 1400 one man from the little village Eggershausen by Friesoythe came to Hollwege and was called "de ut Eggeshusen". This could have been the greatgrandfather (* ca 1380) from Frerick.

A special is the family "Moorburg genannt Süsens" (means Moorburg named Suesens). 1770 Johann Friedrich Süsens married Talke Moorburg from Moorburg and took over the farm. His son Johann Diedrich got last name "Moorburg genannt Süsens" in the churchbooks. This goes over generations up to today. After starting the civil registry offices in Germany about 1876 this name was official.
