Philipp Rempe and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard an English frigate under the command of Skipper Adam Beerfeier.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Orlovskaya on 3 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 69.

In 1776, Andreas Rempe moved from Orlovskaya to Näb. In 1782, Heinrich Rempe moved from Orlovskaya to Kind.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Philipp Rempe was a stocking maker while the 1767 census records that he was a farmer.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Philipp Rempe came from the German region of Hessen. The 1767 census records that Philipp Konrad Rempe came from the German village of Holzhausen.
