Descendants of Sigismund RENTZSCH (1776-1843)

Sigismund Rentzsch was a German clockmaker who settled in London in 1811 and became quite well known. He had two wives, Dorothea Meyer (who came to England with him) and Mary Ransome (1796-1874). He had 16 children. His daughter, Rosina Esther (1835-1909), married Edward Pilkington Homan of Edenderry, Offaly, Ireland and they were my great grandparents: their daughter, Charlotte, married Thomas Potterton of Carbury, Kildare.

Hi, I am Ken Rentzsch. I had communicated with your father years ago, and had received a nice letter from you following 9/11. Summer before last, we traveled to Germany and visited the home of my Grandfather, Paul Rentzsch, a little town on the Elbe River named Sahlassan. In the church of the neighboring town, Strehla, we found family history going back to the 1700s.
If you are interested in learning about them, please let me know, my email is:

Best wishes, Ken
