Konrad Martin, a single farmer, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pink.

He is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 72 along with a note that he relocated to the colony of Hockerberg in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Konrad Martin came from the German village of Nidda near Steinberg in the Darmstadt region.
