Mikhail immediately tweaks my "Russia!" nodes.
I've found Kettenring as a modern surname. It seems German... Ja!
Purportedly means "chain link". Info found on a website, as the only
Bahlow I have is the personal names book. Unfortunately, genealogical
sites are notoriously unreliable. However, I did find a 16th century
birth date on one of them. This bodes well for perhaps finding the name
in a decent source, such as Bahlow or Morlet. (Who has Bahlow?)
Okay, so following the German angle, I find the name Michahel dated to
1315 in "Medieval German Given Names from Silesia" at
I don't have Bahlow. But I'd be surprised if you cannot document Kettenring
The (Fieldless) is a convention which says "no, we didn't
forget a field tincture here, there isn't any, so sod off".
