Arnold in Herrnsheim, Germany

Phillip Arnold was born to Johann George Arnold and Rosina Geyger in Ballenberg (near Mosbach) Baden, Germany in 1679. He was in Herrnshiem, Rheinhesses, Hessen, Germany by 1709 when he married Catherine Bach.


  • Why did Phillip Arnold move from Ballinberg to Herrnshiem? There may be some connection to the Archibishops of Mainz and his court.
The first record for the name in Herrnsheim was the 1703 marriage of the widow, Anna Catherine Arnold, to Joannes Valentine Gurker (unsure of his surname).

The first continuous record for the name was the 1709 marriage of Phillip Arnold to Catherine Bach.

  • The church records were recorded in Latin and the civil records were recorded in German. The church records were recorded in the Catholic Parish Church of St Peter in Herrnsheim.
  • The records for Herrnsheim were (more or less) written in Latin. The spelling of the names varied depending, I think, on the whim or the person recording the event. "in" was added to most female surnames, but not all. Endings for male names varied with "us", "i", "o" being most common. However, in the case of Jo(h)ann it sometimes "e"
  • Herrnsheim (Herrn's heim), meaning Gentleman's Home, was a Catholic village just north of the city of Worms. The "Gentleman's Home" was the "schloss" (palace or castle) of the von Dahlberg (Dalberg) family.

    Birth: Circa 1727 with an estimated age of 20 at the time of her marriage.

    Marriage: Lorenz Arnold Herrnsheim in 1747, parents, Francisco and Anna Marie. Eva was listed as relicta filia (meaning that her parents were deceased) mention was made of Osthofen.

Death of Franz Marion: Before 1747

I haven't seen any listings in either for Marion. There are some listings on the IGI in the 1750 and 60s in Osthofen. I need to check them out.
