Peter Becking was the father of Ambrosius Becking, a day-laborer (Tagelöhner). Ambrosius, his wife Margaretha Kümmeling, and his sisters (Maria Abelona & Anna Margaretha) immigrated to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein), arriving in Flensburg on 9 June 1762.
They are last recorded in Denmark on 18 February 1765.
They joined the migration to Russia and settled in the Volga German colony of Dönhof on 21 July 1766. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 34.
Both the Eichhorns and the 1767 census record that Peter Becking came from the German region of Kurpfalz.
