Ancestry immigration shows more departures from Germany to USA.

Their map of ENGLAND & WALES shows concentrations in London, Derbyshire, Hampshire, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk, England.

Thanks, much appreciated!
I think that similar to Rembrandt Van Rijn meaning Rembrandt born near the Rhine River, that Marthinus Van Staden means Marthinus born in or near Staden.
