Christoph Hoppe, a farmer, his wife Johanna, and children (Johanna, age 16; and Johann, age 9; Eleonora, age 4) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pinkom.
Christoph died after arrival in Russia. His widow Johanna and surviving children settled in the Volga German colony of Boisroux on 3 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 64 along with his daughter who has married Christian Gottlieb Otto.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that the Hoppe family came from the German region of Dessau.
