Notes:
Church head elder and duck catcher, lived in Großenheidorn. He oversaw the reparation of the chapel in Großenheidorn in 1694/1695.

A description of duck catching on the Steinhuder Meer was written in 1617: The duck catcher kept semi-tame ducks in a small hut at the edge of the lake. These ducks would lure wild ducks to feed with them and enter the hut. When the duck catcher closed the entrance to the hut, the semi-tame ducks would find the secret exits prepared for that purpose, but the wild ducks would not, and could then easily be caught in the hut and killed. A map drawn in 1740 shows the duck catching hut to be on the shore a half mile northeast of Steinhude.
