The Heinen family resided in Nordrhein-Westphalen, Germany. The family was Roman Catholic.
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 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.
