Johan Sanfrid Stenberg

I am looking for information on Johan Sanfrid Stenberg. He was scion of a rich family. In germany, it is the custom to educate a child born to a son of a rich family- his children are raised by the family into the father's career. Because Johan Sanfrid was a sickly child, he was trained to be a vallesmanni (sheriff). The family name was Burghausen. The family originated in Westphalia, Germany. The estate was sold by the state (Finland) because the last 2 didn't have any children. Johan Sanfrid was raised and educated at the Lammimiemen Court.....He tried until his death to be recognized by the Burghausen's. (He was an illegitimate son of Johan Sanfrid Stenberg I)
