The Brunsfeldt family originated in Western Germany in the province of Nordrhein-Westphalen, in the village of Hochkirchen.
Hochkirchen, which literally translates to "high church", is part of the municipality of Nörvenich. The village includes two mom and pop shops with a bakery, a cemetery, and the historic St. Viktor's Catholic Church. The village website is www.Noervenich.de.
The village lies just east of highway 477 and 1 kilometer south of Nörvenich. The Neffelbach flows through the village. The population of the village in 1794 was 155, in 1855 was 340, and is currently 401.
St. Viktor's Church.
The surname Brunsfeldt may be a variation of Braunfeld, or "brown field". Spelling variants such as Brunsfeld, Brunsfelt, Brunfeldt, Brunfeld, and Prunsfeldt were common in the church records.
