Heinrich Hollbeck, a single farmer, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 18 June 1766 aboard the ship Mann und Frau under the command of Skipper Daniel Berg.

He setttled in the Volga German colony of Dinkel on 27 July 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 47 along with his new wife, Dorothea Elisabeth.

The 1767 census records that Heinrich Hollbeck came from the German village of Rieben in the Brandenburg region.

There to not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this family, so the surname does not continue among the Volga German colonies.
