    ...yet another very likely candidate, close contemporary to Carlyle and Vandermaelen, is :

    Leopold von Ranke (21 December 1795 – 23 May 1886) was a German historian and a founder of modern source-based history.[3][4] According to Caroline Hoefferle, "Ranke was probably the most important historian to shape [the] historical profession as it emerged in Europe and the United States in the late 19th century".[5] He was able to implement the seminar teaching method in his classroom and focused on archival research and the analysis of historical documents. Building on the methods of the Göttingen School of History,[6] he was the first to establish a historical seminar. Ranke set the standards for much of later historical writing, introducing such ideas as reliance on primary sources (empiricism), an emphasis on narrative history and especially international politics (Außenpolitik). Ranke also had a great influence on Western historiography. He was ennobled in 1865, with the addition of a "von" to his name.

    Historians may further examine following persons for coidentification:

    H e i n r i c h J o h a n n F r i e d r i c h Ostermann . Er wurde am 9. Juli 1687 geboren, nicht, wie so oft zu lesen ist, 1686. Das Geburtshaus stand Ecke Schützenbahn-Bongardstraße, es war die bekannte spätere Wirtschaft Bernhard Dahm, die 1906 abgebrochen wurde. (heute Brunstein und Woolworth.)…. So waren die Jahre in Beresow nur noch ein Warten auf den Tod. Körperlich gebrochen, aber seelisch gefaßt und ruhig, starb er am 25. Mai 1747.

    same man as

    Andrei Ivanovich Osterman wurde am 30. Mai 1686 in der westfälischen Stadt Bokume in der Familie eines Pfarrers geboren. Beim nächsten Staatsstreich, der am 25. November 1741 zugunsten der Tochter von Peter I. Elisabeth begangen wurde, wurde Osterman verhaftet. Er wurde wegen Hochverrats vor Gericht gestellt und zum Tode verurteilt. Am Tag der Hinrichtung, dem 18. Januar 1742, wurde Osterman auf dem Schafott aufgestellt, aber hier wurde ihm angekündigt, die Hinrichtung durch das ewige Exil in Beresov zu ersetzen. In Berezovo lebte er 5 Jahre lang mit seiner Frau, verließ das Haus nie und empfing niemanden außer dem Pastor. Andrei Ivanovich Osterman, der ständig an Gicht litt, starb 1747 im Alter von 61 Jahren in Beresovo.

    and

    Henri Cochin (ie "Voltaire"-father of Augustin Henri Cochin) est un avocat français, né à Paris le 10 juin 1687 et mort le 27 février 1747.

    And yet another staged death, early 1747, of alias Christian August, Prince of Anhalt-Zerbst (29 November 1690, in Dornburg – 16 March 1747, in Zerbst) was a German prince of the House of Ascania, and the father of Catherine the Great of Russia.He was a ruler of the Principality of Anhalt-Dornburg. From 1742, he was a ruler of the entire Principality of Anhalt-Zerbst. He was also a Prussian Generalfeldmarschall.
