Christoph August Theodor Cordua ‎(I22)‎
Birth 23 October 1796 29 24 Wardow bei Laage, Mecklenburg, Germany
Death 8 October 1857 ‎(Age 60)‎ Güstrow, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
Perhaps the most famous Cordua, Theodor Cordua had a life of adventure, traveling the globe, starting/running successful plantations in Dutch Guyana ‎(Suriname)‎, becoming one of the original 100 settlers of the Sacramento Valley in California. He made a fortune in California, then lost it all during the gold rush. He returned home to Germany a broken man and wrote detailed memoirs which are still in print.
Hinrich Corduan ‎(I97)‎
Birth 1650
Currently the oldest, root patriarch for the Cordua family, Hinrich Kordewahn must have been born around 1650. We know that he was a master miller in Grundshagen in Mecklenburg, Germany
Hans Cordua ‎(I863)‎
Birth 1876 30 25 Hamburg
Death 24 August 1900 ‎(Age 24)‎ Pretoria, South Africa
The execution in 1900 of 24 year old Hans Cordua in Pretoria, South Africa by the British army was an international event. The British were fighting the \"Boer Wars\", attempting to exert control over a breakaway republic of settlers. The young German Hans Cordua fought for the Boers and was entrapped in a harebrained plot to kidnap the British general and sneak him into Boer territory. The man who suggested it to Cordua was a secret British agent, and was the one who also exposed him. The execution became an international scandal – it was a great propaganda tool for the Germans in the approach to WW1, an example of which being the postcard of the execution from which the adjacent picture was taken . . . but public opinion all over the world was not kind to the British over this incident. Tourists today can take \"Boer War\" tours which, among other stops, make a pilgrimage to Cordua\'s grave.
Stanley Kubrick ‎(I447)‎
Birth 26 July 1928 New York, New York, USA
Death 7 March 1999 ‎(Age 70)‎ Harpenden, Hertfordshire, England, UK.
Through the proverbial "6 degrees of separation" the Cordua family is related to famed film director Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick's wife, Christine, was previously married to German move star Werner Bruhns, and Werner was subsequently married to famous German political correspondent Wibke Klamroth Bruhns. Wibke, who is the daughter of Hans Georg Klamroth, executed by Hilter for the attempt on his life, is the great-granddaughter of Caroline Cordua, daughter of Johann Adolf Cordua, patriarch of the many Danish Corduas living today.
Theodor Albert Henrik Neumann-Cordua ‎(I48)‎
Birth 24 August 1860 43 34 Paramaribo, Surinam, South America
Death 1914 ‎(Age 53)‎ Venezuela
Grandson of "famous Theodor", he was born in Surinam and was known locally as the "Music Master". A classical composer and pianist, he was professor at the Conservatory of Bern, Switzerland and became honorary member of the Richard Wagner Academic Music Association of Vienna, Austria at just 21. He traveled the world giving concerts.
Dr. jur. Johann Martin Andreas Neumann ‎(I101)‎
Birth 16 August 1865 50 41 Lübeck
Death 1928 ‎(Age 62)‎
Dr. Neumann was an important and powerful figure in German politics during the days of the Weimar Republic and the turbulant times this brought with it. He was mayor of the powerful "free city-state" of Lübeck from 1920-1926, presiding over a government equally divided between right wing and left-wing/socialist forces. When the radical right-wing "Alldeutsche Verband" attempted a coup to overthrow the German government, he was - likely wrongfully - implicated in the plot and the ensuing scandal forced his resignation, broke his health, and led to an early death. As grandson of "famous Theodor" his racial characteristic is called "Poestice", that is, his grandmother ‎(Theodor's wife)‎ was a freed slave in Surinam, also known as Dutch Guyana.
