Preussen - Poland
Stobbe is also a Mennonite family name since at least 1668. Stobbe was first recorded at Danzig and later also in Elbing, Montau and other West Prussian churches - now Poland. Some members of this family were ministers in the church.

Isaac Stobbe (b.1712 - † 1788), a shoemaker, became a preacher in 1751 and an elder in 1775 of the Frisian (Neugarten) congregation of Danzig.

Erdmann Stobbe was also a preacher of the same church from 1786 - ca. 1808.

Johann Stobbe of Klein Lunau became a preacher in 1871 and elder between 1875-1906 of the Schönsee (Sosnovka) Mennonite Church.

Peter Stobbe (b. 16?? † 1736) of Tiegenhof in the Gross-Werder was the founder of a famous distillery, which was in existence at least until 1945.

According to the Mennonite historian Horst Penner, the Stobbes were "einheimische Preussen", i.e. native Prussians, and lived in Danzig and in West Prussia, south of Danzig, present-day Gdansk, going back to the 12th century. 17 families appear in the listing of Mennonite families compiled by Adalbert Goertz. See "Mennonite Families in the Montau, Gruppe, Schoensee Region, 1800-1840".


Stobbes from Montau, West Prussia, were mostly of the Mennonite faith. In 1819, they emigrated to South Russia. Later, around 1876, they came to Minnesota.
