Representative of: Bertha and her son Charles Heinz were witnesses at Freda's wedding to Henry Dittmer in 1892 : Sophie was visiting her son-in-law and daughter, Richard and Maria Rueger in 1911.
They were living at 389 New Chester Road, Rock Ferry, Birkenhead. Attending: A S Dorothee came to England sometime after 1911, probably to care for her sister Anna in old age.  Dorothee died in 1945.
Several of the other family appear to have also moved to England.

She came to England about 1881.

Her father is recorded as Christian Westpfahl, a sugar refiner on her marriage certificate of 1892.

Freda arrieved in the UK about 1881-82 but wasn't on the 1891 census, so may have returned with Henry to introduce her to his sister in Germany that year, before they were married, but I cant find any Immigration record on Ancestry.co.uk.  Her father however was in Liverpool in 1891.

Married Henry (28-Feb-1892) in Liverpool, Lancashire while living a 2 Gt Nelson Street.  Freda used to work in service in a Big House in Liverpool when she was first married.

Fred also worked part-time as a carer for Mrs Lindley, a cripple in a wheel-chair, at Cottingly Cliff, Bingley.  She was a smart, thin lady.  Her husband was some form of business man.

She (and Henry) were recorded as German subjects on the 1901 census, and later, during WW2, there was concern in the family that they may be interned for the duration of the war.
1846 - 1893 Christian Friedrich Westpfahl 47 47 Christian was a sugar refiner.  Some of the Liverpool Dittmers were also sugar refiners, so they probably worked together.

Probably arrived in Liverpool after 1881, although a C Westpfahl of Rostock Germany, did arrive at London from Hamburg on 4-Oct-1859.

Father of Mary Bertha in 1883, and recorded as a Pork Butcher.  Mothers address was 20 Linton St.

Living at 89 Opic Street, Everton in 1891, working as a Labourer at the Sugar Refinary.

Father of Freda recorded as Christian on marriage certificate of 1892.  However, Christian was recorded as a Bachelor when he later married Anna Sopheia.

There are no recorded adult deaths for a Westpfahl between 1885 and 1888 in the NW, so Mary Bertha and Marie Frederica must have been born to mother Sophie Dunkacke before she married Christian Friederich.
1885 Maria (Merri or Mary) Fredericke Westpfahl Recorded as Merri Westpfhal in 1891

Alma M Rueger/ Rogers 1918 Ronald V Rueger During WW2, Ronald V escaped to England (not sure exactly when) before he could be called up to the German army and, there, joined the British Army!  When the remainder of the family were repatriated, one of the first things Ronald did was persuade them all to change their name from Rueger to Rogers (to avoid any possible repercussions from the British people).  He had already changed his. 1911 - 1915 Vilma (Wilma) M Rueger 3 3 1908 Bernard Otto C Rueger Otto Rueger is recorded as sailing to New Youk 1911 Sydney Kidd 1915 Herbert Kidd 1909 - 1998 Bertha Marion Kidd 88 88 1844 - 1918 Bertha Jane Westpfahl 74 74 aka: Johanne Sophie Bertha Westpfahl

Her first daughter was Dora Westpfahl Askew, born 1884 and Dora (or Dorothy) is a reoccuring family name, so her mother may be Dora.
