  • Notes  _UPD:
    • BIOGRAPHY: We have more written information about Johan von Wowern in German and hope to translate it. It is his last will and testament.

      BIOGRAPHY: Johan von Wowern, born 10 March 1574 in Hamburg, he became a student from Johanneum in tHamburg, Germany, in 1593 and matriculated in Leyden, Netherlands in 1593, where he remained for 5 years and developed relationshipswith the famous men: Jano Grutero, Merula, Daniele Heinsso, Meursio. Thereafter he stayed for 2 years in France where he also developed relationships with the most well-known men. From here he traveled to Rome, where he made the acquaintance of various Cardinals. From the Pope, he received an offer for a yearly pension if he wanted to stay in Rome but he excused himself with daring character.From there he came to the Count of East-Frisland by whom he was sent to Haag (Hague, Netherlands), and thereafter he came to the Duke Johan Adolph of Holstein-Gottorp, who made him an officer and governor at the Castle in Gottorp; he became church president and was a great Philologist (language researcher). When he had managed this castle for 3 years, he died 30 Mar 1612. In his will, he writes, that his family line then was 300 years old - it may also now be 650 years old, and he set up a Scholarship based on some marshlands, all in all about 142 Demit Land (some kind of measurement), thiswas then in Sieversflethen Koog in Tetenbüttel Church Parish, and in Freesen Koog in Coldenbüttel Church Parish on Ejdersted. To begin with, the money from the scholarship went to a well-known speaker who was going to give a speech in the honor of Johan von Wowern; but in 1729 and 1733 the Danish Kings, Frederick IV and Christian VI, decided the scholarship should benefit the Waisen House in Hamburg, and the family lines members. The scholarship remains constant and is managed by the administration at Husum Castle. Scholarships are given out constantly to the family line. Johan von Wowern was not married; he had a seething hatred for Hamburg because he did not receive any position there. In 1595, he did not attain an assignment as a schoolmaster in Hamburg, and he did not receive a government position in Lübeck, in spite of the fact that the Prince took personal interest in him. 1601, he could have received a position with the Great Duke of Florenz, but refused it. In Venice he had expected to receive a promotion, but did not get it. 1603, he was offered title of royal Counselor, and 1606, he lived at the court of Braunschweig, and 1608, he was there offered a station with the Cardinal de Joycose, 1607, he was assigned as Counselor with Count of East Frisland, in 1608 he was sent to Haag (Hague, Netherlands) as an envoy (ambassador)
