1. Johann Carl IHMSEN was born about 1706.

1736 - Carl enters in place of Johan Henrich Gundelach into the extension of the Emde Works contract together with Abraham Wiegand. He dies shortly after, and his widow, Judith Greiner, takes over his part of the works. Now, for the next 10 years 26 Reichstaler per Schock wood have to be payed yearly.

1738 - Carl Imbsen has opened, together with Elias Vaupel and Johann Christian Becker, the works at the Surenberg. 1743 Vaupel has to leave, since he, without the knowledge of the "Paderborner Hofkammer" [bishop’s court] opened a “coarse” glass works near Kohlstaedt. The brothers Johan Jobst and Johan Christian Becker become managers, until in 1747 the works is closed due to lack of wood.

•  March 1738 - In a protocol of the Paderborn princely high authorites of Dringenberg to the authorities of the prince-bishop’s court authorities Master Gundelach and the glasscutter Carl Ihmsen were ordered to appear because of quarrels between them. It is reccommended to them to stop their fighting, and it was suggested, that Gundelach give his half of the works to Ihmsen. Both should continue though to work together at the works.  Gundelach, outraged, refuses to follow this suggestions: “in that he cannot be in community with the glass cutter, since he knows of his quarrelsome nature. He would rather let go of the works against payment for what he invested in it and what is there in valuables, and get out totally”, while Ihmsen declares: “to pay the worth of the works and the supplies present after an official estimation of its value to Gundlach, hoped though, that his cousin Gundlach would not deal with him like a stranger, but rather like a cousin”.

•  May 1738 - A settlement was agreed upon in which Gundelach sells his half of the works to his “cousin”. Ihmsen has to pay the sum of 280 Reichsthaler for the part of the works plus tools. For the materials like pottash, lime, etc. he has to pay extra. This settlement was confirmed by the prince-bishop’s court authorities and the house of Asseburg.

•  1747 - Carl Ihmsen and Abraham Wiegandts widow prolong the contract for the works for another 10 years.

•  1751 - Carl Ihmsen receives from the Electorate Clemens August the sole privilege, to cut and guild glass in the archbishopric of Paderborn.

•  1757 - Carl Ihmsen and the widow Abraham Wiegandt prolong the contract for the works for another 10 years.

•  1759 - Carl dies and is buried in the churchyard of Poembesn.
