Yes, the first Ehlinger to land was Jean Baptiste Ehlinger, he married a
Rose Bradley, they lived in Gateshead. They had several children, one of these
was called Florrie Ambrosine Ehlinger, who was my grandmother. By the time
Florrie decided to marry, they changed the spelling to Ellenger, it was 1917 and
any name that sounded a bit German would be provocative.
JB Ehlinger was born in Saint Amarin 15th May 1864, i have the rest of his
line going back to 1500.
