I hope I can help you with this EvStuermer,
The Von STURMERs in New Zealand were not always Von and it was spelt STURMER.
The Von Sturmer's in New Zealand are decendants of Frederick STURMER 1804-1876 he was born on 9 April 1804 in Hackney Middlesex England, died on 3 March 1876 in Kensington Middlesex England at age 71, and was buried in Kensal Green Cemetery London England.
Now, Frederick married (1)Mary NORRIS on 3 July 1828 in St Mary's Richmond Surrey England, daughter of John NORRIS and Elizabeth CLARKE. Mary was born on 1 March 1801 in Richmond Surrey England and was christened on 5 April 1801 in St Mary Magdalen Richmond Surrey England. She died on 7 January 1873 in Heapham Lincolnshire England at age 71.
They had about 6 children among them a son; Frederick John VON STURMER 1829-1897 (he and a brother Spencer William, who migrated to Australia added the VON) was born on 8 April 1829 in Oxford Oxfordshire England and died on 5 August 1897 in Hamilton Waikato New Zealand at age 68.
Frederick STURMER's father was Samuel STURMER 1763-1816 son of John Samuel STURMER 1732-1764 and Ann HILL.
John Samuel STURMER 1732-1764 and Ann HILL 1732-1899 children were:-
1. John Sturmer (1757 - 1796)
Born in London on 8 May 1757 to John Samuel Sturmer and Ann Hill. He passed away on 17 Apr 1796 in Jamudang, India.
2. Benjamin Augustus Sturmer (1758 - 1760)

3. William Sturmer (1762 - 1797)
Born in City London on 12 Sep 1762 to John Samuel Sturmer and Ann Hill. He passed away on 14 Mar 1797 in Cawnpore, Bengal Bahar, India.
3. Samuel Sturmer (1763 - 1816)
Born in Threadneedle, London on 23 October 1763 to John Samuel Sturmer and Ann Hill. Samuel married Louisa Ogier and had 5 children. He passed away on 15 Sep 1816 in Poplar, Middlesex, London
Samuel was born on 23 Oct 1763 in in Threadbeedle Street, London England and died on 15 Sep 1816 in Poplar London England at age 52. He married Louise OGIER who was born on 29 Jun 1761 in Stepney London England, was christened on 15 Jul 1761 in London England, and died in 1843 in Boulogne Sur Mer Pas De Calais France at age 82.
Here's the connection with Germany but not to the Von's;
John Samuel STURMER (1732 - 1764)
Born in Frankfurt-On-Oder, Brandenburg, Prussia on 20 Jun 1732 to Jacob Sturmer and Johanna Marsel. John Samuel married Ann Hill and had 4 children. He passed away on 1764 in England.
Jacob STURMER(1687 - 1741)
Born in Zullichau, Brandenburg, Prussia on 6 May 1687 to Jacob Sturmer and Catherine Semler. Jacob married (1)Ursula Maria Tiebel. Jacob married (2)Johanna MARSEL. He died on 14 August 1741 in Frankfurt-On-Oder, Brandenburg, Prussia.
Johanna MARSEL (1706 - 1750)
Born on 1706. I'm afraid nothing much is known of her. She died on 4 October 1750 in Frankfurt On Oder, Brandenburg, Prussia
Jacob's great grandfather back as far as the 16th century were still STURMER with no added Von.
I believe the Von Stuermer's were Pomeranians and I know very little about that family. Hopefully someone will have the answers for you.
