Daniel Gottlieb Tolkien born in Danzig (Gdańsk) c. 1747 and baptized as Lutheran died as Dan Godleip Tolkien, Wesleyan (Methodist) in 1813 in London. Dan Godleip is an interesting Anglicization of German form Daniel Gottlieb. Ha was brother of Johann Benjamin Tolkien, who as John Benjamin Tolkien died as Anglican. Two lives of Two Danzig brothers, immigrants from the Kingdom of Poland who died in London.

And here you can read about the Wesley's Chapel with cemetery where Dan Godleip's grave once was (or maybe still is?).
