Note*A note on Surnames: In Ostfriesland definite surnames were taken in the 1800's. Before then most families used "patronymics", that is, they were named after their father. So the son of a man called Jan got the surname Janssen, the son of a man called Folkert got the surname Folker(t)s, etc. After the definite surnames started in the 1800's the patronymics became middle names.

Jan Folkers Gronewold, was known as Jan Folkers or Johann Folker(t)s before the family took the surname Gronewold in the 1800's. Even his death record in 1849 does not show the surname Gronewold because he was known in the village as Johann Folkerts.

The Gronewold family first appears in Sandhorst in 1814 when Folkert Janssen Gronewold was born in Sandhorst as the eldest son of Jan Folkerts Gronewold and of his wife Goeste Hedden (in her death record called Goste Heeren)

A note on Ostfriesland: Ostfriesland was a Principality of its own until 1744 when it became a part of Prussia. From 1807 to 1810 Ostfriesland belonged to Holland, then to France until 1815 and became a part of Hannover in 1815. In 1866 Hannover (including Ostfriesland) became a province of Prussia and in 1946 a part of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony). The term "Ostfriesland" is still used today for the Aurich-Emden-Leer-Wittmund etc. area but it is no longer a state of its own.
