The Stobbe family in Denmark originates from Magnus Stobbe (1790-1837), possible the son of an Inn keeper named Tias Stobbe. Magnus ran away from his family in Glückstadt (Steinburg county) around the year of 1802. He was found by the Danish general Johan von Ewald who took personal care of him, learned him among other things to be special agent in the Danish army. In 1814, after the wars with England and Germany, Magnus settled on Zealand 65 km south of Copenhagen as a miller. Per Stobbe originates directly from Magnus Stobbe. Kreis_Steinburg.gif (10872 bytes)
