Esch Family Genealogy

FAMILY ORIGINS

The Esch family resided in either Binsfeld or Düren, and later Rommelsheim or Hochkirchen, Germany. The family was Roman Catholic.

It is unclear who the father of Anna Maria Esch and her brother Andreas Esch is. No father is ever listed and the children took their mother's surname. This indicates that the mother may have been a single mother. In the 1805 marriage record of Anna Maria, again no father is listed.

NÖRVENICH, BINSFELD, and ROMMELSHEIM

Dorweiler is a hamlet within Nörvenich which is embedded between the Erft and the Neffelbach, tributaries of the Rhine River. It's population is around 200. As with most villages in the area, agriculture has always been the main occupation of residents. Since ancient times there were small and medium-sized farms that were farmed in traditional ways.

Binsfeld is a part of the municipality Nörvenich in the district of Düren in North Rhine-Westphalia. The population in 1885 was just 629 and the current population is 950. It is the western-most district of the municipality and adjacent to the city of Düren.

Until 1969, Rommelsheim and Binsfeld were originally part of the same municipality. A small river called the Ellebach flows through the village of Rommelsheim. The population is around 550.

SURNAME ORIGINS

The surname Esch has two possible meanings: 1) A habitational name (from Old High German asc or 'ash' or a topographic name for someone who lived near a prominent ash tree); 2) From the Middle High German ezzisch, meaning 'seeded field', and, thus, a topographic name for someone who lived by an area where grain was grown or perhaps a status name for someone who owned such land.

It is unclear what the surname Kerp means. It may be a variant of the locality Kerpen. There were several different places called Kerpen and there was also a Knight family called von Kerpen.
