View Full Version : Grabowski ancestors from Poland

29-08-2008, 10:07 AM
I am seeking any information that will shed light on my great great grandfather, Herman Grabowski, who was born in Russian Poland in 1823. He came to England sometime in 1850s and married Ellen Andrews in Southwark, London.

I am especially interested to learn exactly what year he came to the UK, on what ship and what town he came from from. Without this information we have no hope of learning who his parents were.

There is a rumour and tenuous evidence suggesting Herman's parents were Count Carl Frederick Grabowski and Grafen von Bessell, descendents of King Stanislaw II of POland.
