Hagenlaeger / Hagenleger Family Genealogy


The Hagenlaeger / Hagenleger family resided in Nordrhein-Westphalen, Germany in the city of Zulpich. The family was Roman Catholic.


Zülpich is a city in the Euskirchen district with about 20,000 inhabitants, spread over the central city and 24 towns. It is about 20 minutes south of Nörvenich. In 1798, after the Rhineland fell to France, it became the French political or administrative subdivision of the region. The Church of St. Peter, first built in 848, was rebuilt several times until it was destroyed in World War II.

Nemmenich is among the communities of Zülpich, located directly east of the city. It has 678 inhabitants. The village lies in the lowlands of the the Rotbach (Erfst) River. The 1767 population of the village was 180.


The surname Hagenlaeger could have a variety of meanings. It seems likely that it is an occupational name for a hedgelayer.

It is unclear what the surname Proen means or from where it derives. There is a town called Prum in Westeifel (Rhineland-Palatinate), Germany. There were two large Prum families living in Niederberg (Erfstadt), about 15 minutes away from Eggersheim. Joanni Pruem and his wife Gutilae and Christiano Pruem and his wife Apolloniae were both having children during the period of 1670-1690. It is possible that one of these are the parents of Anna Sophia Proen.
