Holzkamp (Lübeck, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany)

Jump to: navigation, search

Holzkamp was an estate near Lübeck, which about 1555 was leased by members of the Mennonite Roosen family, especially by Geerlinck, a refugee from Jülich. They were apparently not only farmers, but also tanners at a time when they were everywhere exposed to fines and expulsion.
