Georg Gottlob Paul Herzog (1875-)
Pastor of German Seaman's Mission, Sunderland
Paul Herzog must have arrived in Sunderland some time before 1906. This is when he married Hedwig Strebel, another German, in Sunderland where he was pastor to the German Seaman’s Mission.
He seems to have been born in Ebingen to Theodor Herzog and his wife, Amalie Ruhle. His baptism took place on 15 October 2016 with no fewer than eight god-parents.

Pastor Paul Herzog, of the German Mission at Sunderland, who was arrested at South Shields a week past Friday, has been liberated. Pastor Herzog, who is was stated was a German reservist, was detained as a prisoner of war, but it appears that by virtue of his position as pastor in Sunderland he is exempt from service.
