Georg Wenzel arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax. He is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou (No. 46) along with a note that he relocated to the Volga German colony of Näb in 1768.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Georg Wenzel is a single farmer from the German region of Saxony.

The 1767 census records that Georg Wenzel was a widowed miller (Müller) from the German village of Coburg [?] in the region of Sachsen (Saxony).
