Louis, thanks for writing. I am not related with your family, but we procure their data because of the surname. You are the first family member in South Africa I know of. Your original family comes from Alfhausen near Osnabrueck, Germany. They emigrated through Bremen seaport.
I have the following entry: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=teymann&id=I3560 for your ancestor, but unfortunately also no link to ancestors. The first member of that family is here: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=teymann&id=I3718
Dear Louis, this is great information, thank you very much! Johan probably is a descendant from a different family than mine, which has its roots in Northwestern Germany in the towns of Alfhausen and Ankum. We share the same spelling, though and thus also include them in our Genealogical research just to get the data correct. Having said that, I have not more information than those already available in our tree.
I have Johan Henrich Eijmann, born 1742 in Alfhausen, died 1821 also in Alfhausen as a merchant. That is not the person, but bears a similar name and is in the same time range. Usually, Johannes/Johan or Henrich/Hendrik shows then up in variations over and over again. For a start, I would guess that this Johan Henrich Eijman (http://gedbas.genealogy.net/person/show/1147779759) is thus the joint grandfather of your seaman and that Alfhausen merchant. If you like, you might check if other first names are similar and maybe show up in Johan’s descendants.
