HELBRON

 

The name is derived from two German words – hell meaning “bright” or “clear” and brunnen meaning “fountain” or “spring.” The family homestead, at least as far back as about 1650, was in the village of Hilbringen in the Kreise Merzig province, in what is now the Saarland, formerly the Lothringen or Lorraine region of Germany. Hilbringen is a small, picturesque village (see below, left) nestled against the rolling hills of the Saar River valley and is located about halfway between Trier on the north and Saarbrücken to the south, and about 5 miles east of the French border. Some limited evidence exists that the Helbron surname may have originated in or near the ancient Roman city of Treves, present-day Trier, about 21 miles (~34 km) north of Hilbringen.

         

An original genealogy of the Helbron family was conducted in Germany about 1936 by Rolf-Heinrich Helbron (RN=781). Unfortunately, he was to become an early casualty of World War II. In 1980, this genealogy was relayed to me by his brother, Dr. phil. Hans Helbron of Bremen, and while this work did not include much information regarding the portion of the family that had emigrated to America in 1868, it served as the cornerstone for my research. In the ensuing years, this information has been expanded to include present generations, as well as some earlier generations that were not included in Rolf-Heinrich’s original work. A few “unconnected” families still remain, although they appear to retain ties to the mainline Hilbringen family.

 

Between 1740 and 1750, Schloss Helbron (see above, right) was constructed in nearby Biringen by the German architect, Christian Kretzschmar. This was to serve as the Helbron family home until just prior to the outbreak of World War II when it was sold to the Johannes family since most of the Helbron family members had left the area. Unfortunately, the structure was completely destroyed during the War when it came between enemy lines.

 

The emigrant, Johann Rudolf Helbron (RN=8), arrived in New York (Castle Garden) from Hamburg on 22 Jun 1868 aboard the Holsatia. In an interview with Dr. Hans Helbron in 1984 in Germany, he recalled that the emigrant supposedly had made “several” trips back to Germany between 1890 and 1912, presumably to deal with the estate of his older brother, Jean Jacques (RN=772), but no other return passenger lists have ever been found to substantiate this.

 

Limited lineages on three surnames related to the Helbron family are also provided. These are Gerardy, Johannes, and Löwenbrück.

 

 

 

 

Descendants of Johann “Grandill” Helbron

 

[NOTE: The origin of the name “Grandill” (or possibly “Grandil”) is unclear. It was originally thought to be a “beiname” or nickname, but evidence surfaced in March 2000 that it was probably a surname, perhaps his mother’s maiden name. Grandill or Grandil surnames exist in some of the older Church records of Freudenburg, Saarland, Germany dating back to ca 1775.]
