In East Frisia the name Telkamp or Tellkamp occurs starting from 1700 in several places of the Rheiderland.
In the following family trees family names are given to the persons only if they are used in the sources (certificates of birth, marriage and death of the concerned persons). One cannot proceed from the assumption that the parents already used that family name which is proved of one of their children.
The reason is that some families were caused by laws during the 19th century (at first 1811), to take over a family name.
