Surnames: Seedorff Seedorf Peters
I worked on my paternal line up to John Seedorff who lived from 1840-1929, he immigrated from germany with his wife and daughter. I was wondering if anyone had any information about his parents and grandparents back in germany.
Note: His name in germany was Johann Seedorf and his parents were Jochen Peters and Maria Seedorf.

P.S Also why did he take his mothers maiden name.

Johann Heinrich Theodor Seedorff took his mothers maiden name I believe because he was her illegitimate son. His mother's name was Maria Sophia Dorothea Seedorff from Laase, Mecklenberg Germany. I think she was the daughter of Johann Seedorff and Elizabeth Mense but I can't verify that. Jochen Peters would have been his step father.
