Anton Rambeau, a baker (Bäcker), and his wife Maria arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Hans Karholm.

Anton Rambo [sic] and his wife Maria are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Katharinenstadt on 3 August 1767. Anton Rambeau is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 144 along with his new wife Anna.

The 1767 census records that Anton Rambeau came from the city of Paris in France.

There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
