Johann [Heinrich] Langweiler, a farmer, and his wife Elisabeth arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard an English frigate under the command of Skipper Adam Beerfeier.

They are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Paulskaya (No. 112). Heinrich Langweiler is recorded on the 1798 census of Näb in Household No. Nb05.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Langweiler came from the German region of Darmstadt. The 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Leusel.
