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 region of Germany (or Lorraine region of France). 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. Some yet unconnected Helbron families have ties to Trier and appear in their local Church records.

         

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 details 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 initially in New York (Castle Garden) from Hamburg on 22 Jun 1868 aboard the Holsatia. He returned to Germany, likely to deal with the estate of his father (RN=16) who died in 1873, then returned to the U.S. a second time arriving in New York (Castle Garden) aboard the Thuringia on 19 Mar 1874 from Hamburg. In an interview with Hans Helbron in 1984 in Germany, he recalled that the emigrant had made “several” trips back to Germany, supposedly between 1890 and 1919, presumably to deal with the estate of his older brother, Jean Jacques (RN=772). Since RN=8 died in 1912, it is unlikely that another trip was made and no other return passenger lists have been located to-date.

 

Limited lineages on three surnames related to the Helbron family are also provided. These are Gerardy, Johannes, and Löwenbrück. A lineage of my wife’s family, Helizon, is also included.

 

 

 

 

Descendants of Johann Grandil Helbron

 

[NOTE: The origin of the name “Grandil” (or possibly “Grandill”) is unclear. In Rolf-Heinrich Helbron’s original compilation, it was thought to be a “beiname” or nickname, but evidence surfaced in March 2000 that it was likely a surname, perhaps his mother’s maiden name. Grandil or Grandill surnames exist in some of the older Church records of Freudenburg, Saarland, Germany dating back to 1739, and other entries have been found in the Church records of Trier, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany dating back to about the same period. “Grandil” will be used here.]
