Name: Schwittert Hinrichs

Born: October 15, 1689 in Burhafe, Prussia

Died: November 22, 1757 in Burhafe, Prussia

Spouse: Anke Ennen

Children: Behrend, Johann and Enno Schwitters 

Notes: Due to the patronymic name system of the time, Schwittert's sons would get the last name of Schwitters.  The surname system was adopted before his grandchildren were born; chances are good that Schwittert realized that his name would be a legacy.

Schwittert was a schoolmaster and organist; his sons would also be schoolmasters and organists in Berdum and neighboring towns.
