Recently discovered notes from a deceased cousin tell us that my great grandmother was born approx 1833 in Stettin, Pomerania.
She married a person known only as Baron von Thrun. She inherited a vast estate which she was forced to sell approx 1871. I found a reference to land holdings in this area that showed a property owned by a Gottleib Thrun but the dates indicate that this may be her father in law.
She called this estate Rittergut. My question is this; Is Rittergut a proper noun or is it simply a common word describing a land holding.
