Name variations Edit

- George von Rohr
The family is from Brandenburg and the first reference to the family name is in 1191. In the year 1400 Otto von Rohr (c1350-1427) was Bishop of Havelberg. From Brandenburg the family migrated to Pommern, Mecklenburg, Meissen, Sweden and Denmark. The Swedish branch of the family begins with Hans von Rohr (1484-1569), Lord of Freienstien, Meyenburg, Neuhausen, Dremnitz and Leddin.
By 1610 he was the lieutenant for the Swedish Empire and was later promoted to captain in Swedish Ingria.
He married Margareta von Fleeten (1600-1655) in 1621. She was born March 9, 1600 at Narva and died on December 15, 1655. She was the daughter of Colonel Hans von Fleeten. If this information is correct, she would have been 50 years younger than her husband, and 35 years younger than his first wife. It is possible an intervening generation or two have been omitted, and she is the wife of his son or grandson.
