Heinrich Tirol, his wife Anna, and son Konrad (age 8) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Wiebe Heinrichson.

Heinrich settled in the Volga German colony of Balzer on 1 July 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 83 along with his new wife Maria Eva.

In 1791, Heinrich Triol and his family moved from Balzer to Lauwe.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Heinrich Tirol was a farmer from the German region of Isenburg. The 1767 census records that he was a craftsman (Handwerker) from Isenburg.
