Kerp Family Genealogy

FAMILY ORIGINS

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

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

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.

The surname Esser is an occupational name for a wheelwright or cartmaker from the Middle Low German asse or "axle" + the agent suffix er.
