Das Gut Mellen in Holstein

Zur Frage, wo das Gut M e l l e n wohl gelegen haben mag
http://forum.genealogy.net/index.php?pa ... adID=55451
darf ergänzend angemerkt werden:

The name Mellen resp. Moellen is a widespread one in Northern Germany. The name derives from a 'mill' (nowadays: eine Muehle), cf. the name of the two cities Moelln (in the 17th century: Molne resp. Mollen) and Meldorf (in the 17th century: Mildorp) in Holstein and of the two villages Mehlbek (in the 17th century: Meelbeck resp. Melbeke) and Mehlby in Holstein.

You may imagine that the Mellen estate of JOHANN FRIEDRICH STRUVE was located in the Glueckstadt (in the 17th century: Luckstadt resp. Geluckstadt) area. To find the estate you need even a better map than this map of 1650: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c ... n_1650.jpg

There is an old family STRUVE of Braunschweig that got a Russian patent of nobility in 1782. The genealogy of this VON STRUVE family is to be found in the „Gothaisches Genealogisches Taschenbuch der Adeligen Häuser“, Teil B, Gotha 1938 (!!) and 1942.

Regards.
