Johan Spalding was a son Johan Spalding [SSNE 6876] and grandson of Andrew Spalding [SSNE 6717], a Scottish merchant in Mecklenburg. His father was consul in Plau and Johan junior was likely born in the 1650s. He had an important uncle called Jacob [SSNE 4813] who moved to Sweden. Johan himself went on to become a merchant in Malchin. His brothers were Georg (consul in Plau) [SSNE 6878] and Thomas (senator in Güstrow) [SSNE 6879]. It is from Johan's branch of the family that the Malchin Spaldings originate. A senior branch, they were the ones entitled to the estate of the family in Scotland
