Ancient and noble German family, of clear and ancestral virtue, known as Heydrich or Heidrich, a branch of which moved to Cuba in the XIX century with Fernando Heydrich of Wuppertal (January 26, 1827 – April 1, 1903), businessman, politician, engineer and sculptor. He married Maria-Candelaria Martínez y Valdez who gave him Alfredo Heydrich, American Consul, and Emilio Heydrich Martínez (Cuba 1861 – Barcelona 1947), entrepreneur, merchant and landowner. Emilio married Antonia Cubero y Casals who gave him Aida Heydrich, wife of the President of the Manufacturers of Cigars and Cigarettes of Cuba Theodore Garbade.
