Need some help identifying shotgun origins.

A friend of mine inherited some shotguns from her dad.
One is a side-by-side double barrel and has the name Hheydekrug Memelgebiet engraved in scroll work on the bottom of the trigger guard.

The other has an elegant engraving of "Th Pauli Natchf Munster T W".

I have Googled the names with no success.

Can anyone shed light on the names?

The language of the page is German, the area is actually part of what is now Lithuania apparently.
