Just thought I should mention... it should be noted for English speakers like myself that Freiherr / Ritter are not personal names, they are more like titles - Freiherr being close to a Baron and Ritter being a Knight. They were different levels - Knight being just under Baron - Baron holding land outright instead of as a fief. Likewise, in descendants named with a "Dictus" in the name, it also is likely not a name, instead meaning "called".
