We were told that the Stuttmeisters were Prussians descended from Teutonic Knights. I suspect they were a Cadet Branch of the House of Holenzollern. My grandmother’s middle name was Charlotte, and her great grandfather was Dr. Freidrich Wilhelm Rudolph Stuttmesiter. Was he a Doctor of Thealogy? Their Jerusalem Calvinist Church has some amazing history and splits. King Freidrich was titled ‘Ormesus Magnus’ and was one of the foremost Rosicrucians in history.

I am new to the list and hope someone in Deutschland, Charlottenburg,
Brandenburg, or Berlin can help me out.
My research has brought to my attention that there is one Stuttmeister left
in Berlin. He was born in December 29, 1959, Wilhelm Erdman Arthur. He
has two children, christened at St.Peter, Berlin. The children are Johann
Herman and Henriette Theodore Emma Poehlig.
I understand that my great uncle’s father came from Charlottenburg. His
name was Herr Dr. Rudolph Von Stuttmeister. I do not know whether he
immigrated to the U.S. or not. It is a bit of a mystery. His son, Dr.
William Olin Stuttmeister, born April 29, 1862, but where I do not know,
wether in the US or Germany. Is there any way of checking in Berlin?
Also was there a Studentenheim in Charlottenburg, or the surrounding area,
and does the orphanage(I assume that is what it was) exist today?
My great uncle was Catholic, I believe. All Stuttmeister children were
christened at Sankt Petri, St. Jerusalem, St. Nicholai, St. Elisabeth. Do
any of these parishes exist, and are they Catholic?
Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I do not know what to do next.
King of the Rosy Cross
Published by Royal Rosamond Press
Last night I recieved some information from my brother, Mark sent to
him by our cousin, Daryl, which led me to put a great piece of the
puzzle into place.
Dr. William Frierich Rudolph Stuttmeister was born in Berlin in 1816
and died Jan 29 1877. He is buried in a family vault at Cypress Lawn
Memorial Park in Colma California which is near Belmont. William paid
$10,000 dollars for this vault that contains members of the Janke
family. This is alot of money to spend in those days. William Sharon is here. This expenditure
would be made for a millionaire or a king, or someone related to
royalty. But, it may have been the resting place of someone of
standing in a religious order, perhaps the Masons.
This morning I typed in William’s name, minus the Stuttmeister name
which I believe denotes the manor where Charlotenburg was built
beside. The name I got was, Frederick William 2 of Prussia, who I
discovered was a Rosicrucian of the highest order, and was
named ‘Ormesus Magnus’.
Frederick William was a man of singularly handsome presence, with an
intelligence of a high order. He was devoted to the arts, and
patronized Beethoven and Mozart. His private orchestra was known all
over Europe. To quote from an article by Waite published by Rider,
who are responcible the Tarot Card deck;
“Frederick William, then Prince of Prussia. (2) He had attained
already a high position in the Rosicrucian Fraternity and was a firm
believer in the healing power of an elixir known to the Order. (3) It
was used in an illness which befell the Prince, and his recovery was
attributed to its virtues. (4) Bischoffswerder thereupon induced him
to join the Order, concerning which it is said that the real leaders
worked in secrecy, exacting implicit obedience: in a word, they were
Unknown Superiors. (5) Delighted as they werethis is of course
speculationat the advent of a royal recruit, they imposed on him a
year’s probationas it is said, “to impress him more deeply with the
sanctity and seriousness of their authority.” ”
William married several times, two of them of “the left hand”. He had
four sons, one to be king, and another named William. There is no
mention of chidren from “the left hand”. One of his daughters,
Frederika Louisa Wilhemina, married William of Orange a.k.a William 1
of the Netherlands whom the Rougemonts are kin to. I believe my
father is descended from this royal Rosicrucian family. I find it
profound that he would marry a Rougemont who are associated with the
Knight Templars, and in a fictional piece by Ainsworth that may have
been inspired by the Rosicrucian Bulwer-Lytton.
The tomb of Dr. William Stuttmeister, and his Janke kin, is badly
damaged due to earthquakes, and has remained neglected. How like the
prophecy in ‘Ariol’. Have two Rosicrucian bloodlines come together,
as well as a Masonic bloodline? Consider Christine and Vicki
beholding a angel at the foot of her bed. To quote Waite;
“Moreover, the case against Wöllner may call for amendment. It is
possible for a rationalist to be sincere when he turns to things
represented by the religious side of the Rosy Cross. When he said in
a Circle of the Order “0 my Brethren, the time is not far off when we
may hope that the long-expected Wise Ones will teach us and bring us
into communion with High and invisible Beings “it is scarcely fair
to suggest that this was a mere pose. In any case the statement is
valuable for my own purpose, as it shews that he was addressing a
Lodge of Expectation, a Lodge of Quest, not one of attainment.”
Joachim II Hector (German: Joachim II. Hector or Hektor) (13 January 1505 – 3 January 1571) was a Prince-elector of the Margraviate of Brandenburg (1535–1571). A member of the House of Hohenzollern, Joachim II was the son of Joachim I Nestor, Elector of Brandenburg and his wife Elizabeth of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. He was nicknamed after the Hector of Greek mythology.
Franconian cadet branch and Brandenburg-Prussian BranchThe cadet Franconian branch of the House of Hohenzollern was founded by Conrad III, Burgrave of Nuremberg.
Beginning in the 16th century, this branch of the family became Protestant and decided on expansion through marriage and the purchase of surrounding lands.
The family supported the Hohenstaufen and Habsburg rulers of the Holy Roman Empire during the 12th to 15th centuries, and they were rewarded with several territorial grants.
In the first phase, the family gradually added to their lands, at first with many small acquisitions in the Franconian and Bavarian regions of Germany:
Ansbach in 1331
Kulmbach in 1340
In the second phase, the family expanded their lands further with large acquisitions in the Brandenburg and Prussian regions of Germany and Poland:
Margraviate of Brandenburg in 1417
Duchy of Prussia in 1618

Dr. Rudolph Stuttsmeister, supposedly family home was at Charlottenburg,
After 1936 Fischer still held contact with some parishioners. Christiane Ilisch (daughter of the Protestant literary historian Dr. Heinrich Spiero, classified a Jew, meaning within the Nazi ideology a member of a genetic group not a religion, which one could choose or secede from) and her husband asked Fischer to baptise their children. The German Christian-dominated presbytery denied it to them, regarding Christianity a religion reserved for persons of so-called Aryan blood and therefore to be denied to persons fully or partially of Jewish descent. Fischer thus baptised the children in a ceremony held in the Ilischs’ private apartment. In 1941 Jerusalem’s Church, whose services after all the quarrels hardly attracted any congregants any more, was closed as a place of worship.
Since the creation of the Congregation in the Friedrichstadt in 2001, a merger of three prior congregations, the congregation does not hold services any more in Jerusalem’s Church, but in two other functioning churches, Luke’s Church and French Church of Friedrichstadt, out of its four church buildings altogether. Jerusalem’s Church is now used as a convention centre for groups active in Christian Jewish dialogue. Since 2002 the church also hosts the Dutch Oecumenical Congregation of Berlin, which regularly celebrates its services there.

Jerusalem’s Church (German: Jerusalemskirche or Jerusalemer Kirche) is one of the churches of the Evangelical Congregation in the Friedrichstadt (under this name since 2001), a member of the Protestant umbrella organisation Evangelical Church of Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia. The present church building is located in Berlin, borough Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, in the quarter of Friedrichstadt. Jerusalem’s Church is fourth in rank of the oldest oratories in the town proper (except of suburbs incorporated in 1920, which are partly older).

 Early history of Roman Catholic Jerusalem’s Church
A certain Müller, a burgher of Berlin, endowed a chapel in gratitude for his lucky rescue from a Saracen assault during his pilgrimage to Jerusalem. On 18 October 1484 Arnold von Burgsdorff, Prince-Bishop of Brandenburg, issued an indulgence, promising all those helping to restore the chapel 40 days less in the purgatory. The indulgence is the oldest surviving document mentioning the chapel, then consecrated to Mary(am) of Nazareth, the Holy Cross, the blessed Pope Fabian, and Sebastianus of Narbonne. The Chapel was then located in the fields about 1 km outside of St. Gertrud’s Gate (close to today’s Gertraudenbrücke) of the city of Cölln (a part of today’s borough Mitte of Berlin) on the highway to Magdeburg and Leipzig (today’s Axel-Springer-Straße and Lindenstraße).
The chapel was known for its copy of the Holy Sepulchre, as imagined at that time. This structure within the chapel earned it its name, which in 1540 appeared first in a document (Capella zu Hierusalem). Also the present north-south directed street then ending at the chapel thus got its name Jerusalemer Straße in 1706. In 1484 a warden (Kleuser, literally Hermit) took care of the chapel and collected alms from the passing travellers for the pertaining hospital.
 As a Lutheran place of worship (1539-1682)
In 1539 Prince Elector Joachim II Hector converted from Catholicism to Lutheranism, as many of his subjects had done earlier. The Jerusalem’s Chapel thus became Lutheran too, like most of the electoral subjects and all the churches in the Electorate of Brandenburg. During the Thirty Years’ War (1618–1648) with its severe decimation of the population chapel and hospital were given up.
In 1680 Johann Martitz, an Electoral Councillor, donated a new hospital dedicated to the inhabitants of Friedrichswerder, an adjacent city under electoral domination, founded in 1658 next to Cölln, a city of town privileges. Frederick William, the Great Elector, the founder of Friedrichswerder, bestowed the deserted chapel as the first, then Calvinist parish church to the new city. In 1662 Friedrichswerder got its own church within the city’s boundary, the Friedrichswerder Church.
 As a Calvinist and Lutheran Simultaneum (1682-1830)
The present day claims to the Duchy of Estonia by the Teutonic Order. The present 60th Hoch und Deutschmeister of the Teutonic Order has formally decreed that on the 1st of January 2010, the Teutonic Order of Saint Mary’s Hospital in Jerusalem, reclaimed all the Teutonic Orders formerly held possessions, rights and patrimony to the Teutonic Duchy of Estonia, which was sold by the King of Denmark to the Teutonic Order on the 1st of November in the year 1346 and was never legally re-sold or given away by the Teutonic Order to any other Country, State or Person, but infact was illegally taken by force without due consent or compensation given to the Teutonic Order of Knights, therefore the present 60th Hoch und Deutschmeister of the Teutonic Order, formally assumes from the date of the aforementioned decree issued, the complete Feudal Overlordship of the Duchy of Estonia together with Title and Rank of Duke of Estonia, to be henceforth held, born and enjoyed as such upon all present and future Hoch und Deutschmeisters of the Teutonic Order in perpetuity as the sole possession of the Teutonic Order and Brotherhood of Knights.
