Ahders - Aders - Ardus:
I am searching for my great grandfather's family from the vicinity of Osterbruch near Ottendorf in northern Germany. Henry Joseph (anglicised) born c. 1830's left there as a young man c. 1850's to avoid conscription and went to England. He is listed there as Henry Joseph Ardus but I am led to believe that his surname was probably Ahders originally.
He married into the Budd and Young families in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1864 and died in that city in 1911 aged 78.
His daughter, Margarethe Helene Aders was confirmed in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Osterbruch in 1888 whilst staying with her grandparents.
Does anyone have knowledge of a family of this name in this tiny village or its surrounds 1800-1900?

I am also searching for Fell, Weatherstone, Cavers and Fowler in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the early 19th century.
