My Great-Grandfather (George Cottam), worked at the Kreenholm Mill from the 19th Century, and was then the Manager for many years leading up to the Revolution in Russia. The story passed down through the family is that my Grandfather and Great-Grandfather were eventually

smuggled out of Russia by their serfs who hid them in sacks, in 1917. Meanwhile my Grandmother and Great-Grandmother left on a ship that returned to England via Finland - carrying what silver they could inside their garments.

any info is more than welcome


any info is more than welcome

For some time she stayed at St Katharinen and cared about rev. B.Lemm´s kids and certainly went down to Dorpat/Tartu as well Image:Overviwonartu.jpg

Having married she followed her husband Dr Ferdinand Hoffmann to Narva where he worked (as a doctor)

at Kreenholm


and after his death in 1916 she was spending some years at Arensburg/Kuressaare & Reval/Tallinn

But then she had to leave Estonia in 1939 because of the Nazi–Soviet Pact.

(Estonia had been the family`s home for some 200 years)


Leo died in 1944 at Baltenheim Schwetz/Swiecie.....
