Wiegand's from Riga or the general area of Riga 1740's to 1760's

Hi Everyone:

I am new to this list and new to searching my Wiegand ancestry in Riga which I just found out today.

Looking for Michael Wiegand and his wife Lavonia Hattor Dewased who had a son Michael Wiegand born in or close to 1740.

Michael Wiegand born in 1740 was in London England before 1763 the year he was Naturalized there. Michael lived and died in London, England. He was married in England also in 1761 so he was there before 1761.

Michael Wiegand born 1740 is my 4th grt grandfather so his parents are my 5th grt grandparents!!!

Is there church records available for the 1730's to 1760's for Riga??? And what language are the church records in???

I also have no idea why he would have moved to England was there something going on that would have made him make such a move???

I also have no idea what religion the Wiegand's were in Riga in London, England Michael was a member of the church of England.

All new to me so any help would be appreciated.

Brian
