The Heinen family resided in Nordrhein-Westphalen, Germany. The family was Roman Catholic.
NÖRVENICH AND SINZENICH
The family lived in the city of Nörvenich, which has a present-day population of about 12,000. The administrative region (Regierungsbezirk) of Nörvenich is Cologne. The sub-district (kreis) is Duren, which is in the west of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany and is surrounded by the districts Heinsberg, Neuss, Rhein-Erft-Kreis, Euskirchen and Aachen. The tiny village of Hochkirchen is located directly south; Irresheim is to the south and west.
Before the Napoleonic Wars all of the area belonged to the duchy of Julich. The main river in the district is the Rur. A castle called Schloss Nörvenich has been present in the outskirts of the city since around 1400.
The family also resided in Sinzenich, which is 23 minutes south of Nörvenich. Sinzenich has a population of about 1,100 and is part of the communities of Zülpich.
The surname Heinen is a patronymic name from a short form of the Germanic personal name Heinrich. The surname was also spelled Heinens.
The surname Baum is a topographic name for someone who lived by a tree that was particularly noticeable in some way, from Middle High German/Old High German boum or "tree", or a nickname for a particularly tall person. The surname was also spelled Baums.
