I am searching for any information on Christian Finck who arrived in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia with the foreign protestant "Germans" on the GALE 12 June 1751 from Rotterdam to Halifax, Nova Scotia with Thomas Casson, Master. He was a smith from Wurtenburg, Germany.

1779. Will of Christian Finck of township of Lunenburg, yeoman, burial to be arranged by son Frederick Finck, cost paid by beloved wife Anna Maria and son Frederick.
First, Son Frederick to allow her stay and upkeep all her natural life.
Second, to son Frederick all real estate and shall he pay his sisters Johannes Morashe's wife, Just Shupe's wife and Philip Hartle's wife.... Will sealed 17 Oct 1779. Witnessed by Gottlieb Harnish, John Manger and Caspar Wallenhaupt.

Christian Finck's homesteads were
Finck, Christian, Strasburger, C-13 Strasburg, B-40 NW Range also listed in the 1755 victualing list as FINK (FINCK) Christian, Maria, Margaret, Anna, Catherine, Frederick

I am descended from Christian's daughter Anna Margareta Finck, who was born about 1749 and married Johan Justinas Schupe on 1 November 1763 at the Saint John's Anglican Church, Lunenburg, Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, Canada. I have information on several generations in Lunenburg and would like to share anything!!!
