About John Johann Baring

Johann Baring (1697–1748), of Larkbeare House, Exeter, a German immigrant apprenticed to an Exeter wool merchant.

Came to England in 1717 as a German immigrant, apprenticed to a wool merchant. His decision to settle permanently in England started the Baring family on the road to becoming one of the leading family banking firms in the world.

John (born Johan) Baring was born in Bremen, one of the old Hanseatic cities of northern Germany. His father Franz, a Professor of Theology in Bremen, died at age forty only a few weeks before Johan was born. Johan's mother Rebecca (née Vosgds) was the daughter of one of Bremen's leading wool merchants, and it fell to the Vosgds family to raise Johan after his father's death.

Nach England wanderte 1717 der aus Bremen stammende Johann Baring aus. Seine Söhne Johann (John) und Francis gründeten 1770 das Bankhaus Baring Brothers and Comp. zu London, das 1995 zusammenbrach. Francis Baring wurde 1793 Baronet of Larkbear, sein Neffe William Baring, dessen Mutter der Familie Gould angehörte, wurde 1795 unter dem Namen Baring-Gould mit einem vermehrten Wappen beliehen. Zahlreiche Nachfahren des Firmengründers wurden in den britischen Hochadel aufgenommen und stifteten die Linien
