I am a decendent of John Earnst as well. Would like similar information as requested by Hope. My understanding was (don't remember the source though) was that John Earnst was the son of a brother to August Gottlieb.

The family was in England for a short while after being ousted from Germany during the Reformation when the family home, library and books, etc. where burned.

If this is correct, the father of the two brothers was in Germany was a preacher(recollect name was George). - information on this is from a paper written by August Gottlieb.
