banner - Horchner Family Tree
English

Welcome to the website dedicated to all the Horchner families in the world. Please feel free to contribute any information which will assist in completing our Family Tree puzzle.

Please contact John Horchner for further details.

Objectives: - Why build a Horchner web page?

  • Primarily to make available to our children and grandchildren the rich heritage of the history of each of our families.

  • To share worldwide the ancestry of various Horchner families of every country.

  • To record and research relevant and interesting facts and genealogical information made available by all contributors to this web page.

  • To try to interconnect and bring together from various countries those Horchner families willing to contribute their genealogies.

These objectives will change and evolve with time, so hopefully the leading characteristics initially built into this website will be flexibility, encouragement, understanding, sympathy, tolerance and trust.
This website may be only one small step to increase our knowledge and history of the global Horchner family in such diverse countries as Australia, Britain, Canada, Germany, Holland, and the United States of America. One measure of success of this web site will be the recognition of the importance of our immediate past as well as our much more ancient family history. Another measure will be the sharing and improvement in the feeling of global belonging and unity, friendship, and togetherness, all as part of one family.

Intended Audience:-

  • All Horchner family members who participate in the family tree research project.

  • Anyone interested in genealogy generally and in the Horchner family names specifically.

Variations of name spellings:-

Three spelling variations should be noted with reference to the anglicising of the 'o umlaut' or the 'ö'.

  • Hörchner

  • Horchner

  • Hoerchner

Six more variations refer to the assumed historical omission or inclusion of the 'r', and the 'n'.

  • Höchner, Hochner, Hoechner

  • Hörcher, Horcher, Hoercher.

Nine more variations occur when the second 'h' is/was replaced with a 'k'.

  • Hörckner, Horckner, Hoerckner

  • Höckner, Hockner, Hoeckner

  • Hörcker, Horcker, Hoercker.

Not all of these 18 variations necessarily occur in reality, or have as yet been found. It is also not known which variation occurred before the others, or which evolved from which, or whether these variations sprang up spontaneously. One can surmise that spelling variations will inevitably lead to a vigorous debate on the meaning and origin of the name. I am sure and I hope that this will be discussed in the future by professional as well as amateur etymologists and philologists alike. Note: - the word 'Horchner' used throughout this introduction should be construed to mean any of these possible and existing spelling variations.

Your contributions, views, and comments are important and valuable. If you wish to contribute in any way whatsoever to the family tree material, please leave your name, email address, and any other pertinent contact details, as well as your message on Facebook.

Privacy Note:-
This website will publish whatever relevant family tree information that people feel comfortable to share on a global basis. However it is suggested that details of living relatives be somewhat limited. How limited is probably up to each individual. Whether or not any photographs are published will need to be discussed further. Remember, information once published can escape by being copied to other websites, databases, private family trees, and so on.

The Global Horchner Family Tree
"abbreviated version"

Introduction:-
I have recorded information sent to me by members of the Horchner families from Germany, Holland, USA, Australia, UK & Canada. The aim of this project is to assemble the family tree data into an easily readable “plain English”, (and in the future, a “plain German”, and a “plain Dutch”) form. The accessibility and readability are important for those of us with no computers, or access to genealogical software, such as Family Tree Maker FTM which can easily translate special computer files with family tree data.
Another objective is to try to trace the roots of each Horchner family branch back to Germany to try to discover the common origin of the Horchner/Hörchner/Hoerchner family name. This may with time perhaps be a forlorn hope.

Research:-
Contact has been established using personal, postal, & email communications. The Internet searches & subsequent email requests have been & will be my main tools to find new family members worldwide. Obviously, for more reliable & better genealogically based results, we will have to concentrate on hard copy evidence of births, marriages & deaths, records which have to be obtained from families, church archives, and government registry publications. In the short term however, the gathering of data has relied solely on personal and friendly one on one contact.

Conclusion:-
Conbining together two or more Horchner branches with a common ancestor will continue to be the driving force of this project. At the same time, existing data will continue to be expanded as more family information becomes available from all the contributors to this project.

The Global Horchner Family Tree
"full version"
by John Horchner,
john@horchner.net

Summary:-
This document combines various Horchner/Hoerchner/Hörchner (Ho) family trees from Germany, Holland, America(USA), England, and Australia. The family trees are mostly parallel, and unconnected at this stage. The overall purpose of this project is to attempt to place members of the extended Ho family in a single global family tree with one ancestral origin presumably somewhere in Germany. The word “global” expresses a hope for the future, an objective to be aimed for with as many Horchner family histories and genealogies gathered together as possible under this one banner.

Conclusion of this part.
These paragraphs are also in the emails sent to various participating members of the Global Horchner research project, and repeated here in this document for completeness. Then follow the various Horchner family trees.
Most of the material recorded here is very much in a summary form – as a Word document rather than as a genealogical software presentation. This allows those of us with limited access to computerised genealogical software a simple and quick overview of the currently recorded and volunteered Horchner/Hoerchner/Hörchner family trees.This has been prepared by Jannes/Jan/John Horchner/Hörchner, formerly of 384 Maarsbergenstraat, Den Haag, Holland (1939-1950), then of Brisbane, Queensland, A’lia (1950-1994), now of Beachmere, A’lia. The information has been gathered since 1960 by my father (Wilhelmus Johannes) and his sister (Hilda), and other family member through inheritance of personal family records & correspondence, conversations,and more lately by email messages, Internet searches based on requests for data on Ho/Hoe/Hö-rchner family names. This includes some spelling variations as described in the Introduction of the Website, www.horchner.net/ . As an example of this spelling variation, Rich Heckner (USA, Nov 2003) emailed the following variations he found in some of his documents:- Hoechner, Hoerhnuher, Heorchner, Heckner, which then became that US branch’s family name, as it is today. He suspects that these are all interpretative spelling variations of the same name. Prof Dr.Dr. Franz Hörchner of Berlin states (2002) that: “The name Horchner, Horinger, Höringer, Hörl, usw came from one German commune origin; Höriger, (and possibly) means a dependant servant, slave-like.” The use of the one spelling, “Horchner”, of the family name in this document in no way precludes other “more or less correct” Germanic” forms of the name such as – Hoerchner, Hörchner, Hochner, Hoechner, Horcner, Hoercner, Horkner, and so on. In English it is fractionally easier to NOT use Umlauts, however correct that may be in German.

The Purpose of the Research:-
The overall aim of the Global Horchner family tree project is to try to trace the roots of each family branch back to Germany, and beyond that, to a common place or origin somewhere in Germany. The material presented here is part of an ongoing process of gathering the overall structure or global picture of the Horchner family.
A number of the Ho/Hoe/Hö. families contacted are yet to reveal many details of their siblings, parents, grandparents & other ancestry. When these become available it is highly likely that more branches come to light, and hopefully some of the disparate family trees will come together through a common ancestor link. On a global scale, this coming-together commonality is in fact the overall aim of this research. German Horchner migrants in the 18-20th centuries set up new homes in Holland, USA, A’lia, and other countries. One such person, Jacob Reinholdt Hö., arrived in Brisbane, A’lia on the migrant ship, La Rochelle, in 1863, from Hamburg. He came from Kleinschmalkalden, Kurhessen. and his parents were David und Anna Marie. This David may well have been the son (or grandson?) of David Hö., born 1776, who was the son of Anton Hö. both of Kleinschmalkalden. This Brisbane Hö. branch apparently died out about 1945.
Similarly, Andreas (Andrew) and August Hö., two German brothers from parents Christian Hö. und Marika Marie (or Mary Martha) Kyler/Hö., migrated from Munich to USA in 1879 and started two large US Horchner family trees, shown below. Another recorded US Horchner family tree shown below was started by Alexander Hö. who migrated from an unknown German village, and married Mary Salander in 1888? in German Town, WN.
There are several other Internet migrant records (courtesy of Ben Ford, Rochester, NY et al) of Horchner family members arriving in NYC (1892, 1895, 1912, 1915 etc). Those who were shown to be from Gotha und Friedrichoda would highly likely be related to the same large group living today in villages & towns clustered around Tambach-Dietharz, Thuringer Wald region. Other US records indicate earlier Ho. members, for example, a Frederick Ho. discharged from the US army in 1865; Andreas Ho bought Wisconsin land in 1858 as did Alexander G. Ho in 1883. These people are still to be placed in a particular US Ho. family tree.
The entire eight generations of the Dutch Amsterdam Hö family tree can be traced to one German “migrant”, Johann Andreas (1768-1833) from Hahnstaetten, shown below. How were the Hahnstaetten Ho members related to the reasonably nearby Thuringer Wald Ho members? Unfortunately the words of the baptismal church records in St. Nicholas, Hahnstaetten, deny any immediate connection by pointing in a different direction - the parents of Johann Andreas & his brothers are shown as:-“Eltern: Johann Jacob Hörchner, Bergmann aus Niedersachsen und Anna Catharina.” The miner & his wife were supposedly from the north of Germany, Niedersachsen, a huge northern province, far away from Thuringia.
Hopefully these examples show that the purpose of this global family tree project, although still very much in its infancy, is to find and place as many members as possible of the extended Ho family into one global structure; and to give this overall family tree an historically accurate genealogical perspective, hopefully leading to a single source of ancestral origin presumably somewhere in Germany. The word “global” is very much an assumption for the future, not a reality of today. Nevertheless it expresses a hope for the future, a goal, or an objective to be aimed for over time, as more and more data and Horchner family histories and genealogies are gathered together under this one banner.

Principles of Research:-
No apology is made regarding the methodology of the research to date. It is not good genealogy. This project emphasises the compiling and presenting of genealogy in plain language rather than in a software presentation. This encourages the non-technical supporters of this project to continue to volunteer and supply information in the future as more names, dates, & historical facts come to hand in family situations. More official record searches in Church records, Registry Bureaus, and other official archives will parallel this and be added to this project. I do not have access to very many hard paper copies of certificates of birth, marriage & death. Rather, reliance in the majority of cases has been placed on friendly person to person contact using email & postal correspondence, with Internet searches using the Google & other search engines to supply the email address for people with the Horchner surnames. There are many that have never responded despite repeated requests, and one must respect their democratic right to remain private and anonymous. There are also many Horchner Internet references without email addresses – these remain an ongoing challenge, and require continuing research vigilance in the hope that other clues may allow us to establish personal contact, if allowed or acceptable.
Once friendly contact is established, my principle is to remain in a one on one correspondence, with a personal and socially acceptable exchange of family history, and so try to build up a picture of the Horchner ancestry. This ongoing search for the extended Ho family has been, in my opinion, fruitful, rewarding, and my results over a period of three years have produced a general picture of a very widespread, hardworking, international family in Germany, Holland, England, USA, Canada, Australia, and so on.
Assuming an approximate average 25-year cycle of birth, marriage, first child, there are 4 generations per 100 years. The binary series (2 parents; 4 grandparents; 8 great-grandparents, 16, 32, 64,…………….) expands in 5 centuries (i.e. 20 generations) to well over a million direct line of descent ancestors (i.e. 2 raised to the power 20 is 1,048,576). This means that not only the surname genes have come down the one-name ancestry tree, but well over a million people have contributed their gene pool to you as an individual over the last 500 years. Figures beyond 500 years start to stagger the imagination. But I am sure professional geneticists and genealogists are very familiar with these sorts of calculations. Special markers on our genes identifies our heritage – the recent DNA research by Oslo University of Easter Islanders showed them to be of Polynesian descent and not South American, as suspected by the 1950’s Swedish Kon Tiki expedition sociologists. One question we could ask of geneticists is what common ancient DNA marker if any do the Franconian or Thuringer Wald or Hahnstaetten Horchner family members share to uniquely identify them?
Because of the promptness of responses to email enquiries, the personal touch, and its immediacy and meaning to our lives today, my ongoing methodology in the short term will remain this way, with possible future hard-copy evidence & back-up in accordance with more traditional genealogical principles. Today I correspond with no fewer than 50 Horchner & other family members world-wide who have been kind enough to respond. This sharing of family backgrounds has been great, and my thanks to you all. I hope and pray that this project will continue to produce the positive family tree results that people are looking for.


Breakthrough:-
What I assume we are working towards is the combining together of two or more branches with a common ancestor. Some of the German family trees provided by the Thuringer Wald families are very close to that. This will continue to be the driving force behind my incessant questioning of my correspondents – something I am sure that is not always so welcome. But any same or similar Christian (Vorname; voornaam) name, clue, date of birth, marriage, death or a family story or place of birth could be the common connection or clue between two branches. I have this delightful description given to me by the wonderful Frau Elfriede Hörchner auf/from Kleinschmalkalden, when she describes the 18th Century arrival of her now deceased husband’s ancestor to the village: “Lange vor 1803 ist eine Familie Anton Hörchner, ………nach Kleinschmalkalden eingewandert - Söhne der Familie: Johannes geb. 1778; David geb. 1776; Konrad geb. 1785……….”. The word “eingewandert” ( immigrated) still applies today as the Horchner family spreads itself far and wide across the globe. Frau Elfriede Hörchner aus Kleinschmalkalden und Frau Gabriele Bohner/Hörchner aus Tambach-Dietharz have combined their separate family Sippschaftstaffeln (Dutch stamboom; English family tree) into one comprehensive family tree – see below.
To enable someone in the US, Australia, Holland or Germany to think of themselves proudly as a member of one single global family today, I think, is a laudable and desirable aim, and in today’s politically disturbed world, a worthwhile human and family feeling.

Conclusion of this part of “The Global Horchner Family Trees.”

I have recorded several family trees of the German Hörchner families from the Thuringer Wald region, and from Hahnstaetten, Rhineland-Pfalz, whilst another was given to me by Dr Franz Hörchner of Berlin; other global family trees are from the USA Hoerchner families; another by Volker Max Werner Hörchner formerly of Waltershausen/Dortmund, now working in Holland & Spain. Another is the extensive family tree from Martin Hoerchner, London, starting in the German town of Luisenthal, Thuringer Wald. Two others originate from Kleinschmalkalden, one whose family still lives there; another who migrated to Brisbane, Australia, in 1863. The most detailed family tree is the Dutch Hörchner family tree, composed by my Aunt Brunhilde of the Amsterdam originated tribe started by Johann Andreas Hörchner in 1800. I have tried naming all these family trees according to their original earliest known ancestor, or the donor of the information - these arbitrary names which can be changed at will may help to differentiate the family trees for further discussion.
I would like you to check the names of the Hö/Hoe/Horchner members of each tree, and see if you recognise any of these names as belonging to your families ie (dwz, d.h.) a sibling brother or sister; parents; grandparents; uncles; aunts; etc (enz, u.s.w.).
I would also invite you to join this global search for your Hörchner/Hoerchner/Horchner family trees ( www.horchner.net ) by letting me know some more details of your family, starting with details of yourself - full name; date of birth; place of birth; the same for siblings, parents, grandparents, and so on. The email address to send this information to is john@horchner.net.
In order to create and retain a degree of privacy for people still living, this particular draft of the document will only be sent to direct family members already contacted previously. Later publicised copies of this document on the web site, www.horchner.net/ will have arbitrarily deleted some people’s birth dates and/or names from about 1920-1940 onwards. The more complete version of the Horchner family trees will only be distributed privately as requested and available using the appropriate family tree software in due course.

Note: there is a high degree of cross referencing between these family trees. The arbitrary naming above focusses on the origin of the particular branch ie in the USA, most members of a branch will be aware of the particular German migrant who started the branch. But tracing that person further back to Germany presents difficulties. So the “USA” portion of the family tree presents those subsequently born in the USA. The prior “DE” or German branch, focusses on the German origin. So some of the bothway cross references as far as I can determine are as follows:-

AU1 – DE6; AU2 – NL6; AU3 – NL7; DE2 – US1; DE4 – NL1-7; DE7 – US3 – UK1


Some Australian Horchner Family Trees.

AU1 - The Jacob Reinhold Hörchner Australian Family Tree.

Arrival in Australia.
The story of all the Australian Horchner family trees begins with the arrival of migrants from somewhere else in the world e.g. Germany, Holland, USA. The earliest known arrival is a Reinhold Hörchner (spelt Hoerchner), arriving on the La Rochelle from Hamburg, Germany, to Brisbane, Australia, in 1863.
The “Hamburg passenger list”, page 10, shows the ship, La Rochelle, under Captain Junge departing Hamburg 15/5/1863, travelling to Moreton Bay, Brisbane. Passenger no. 46 is Reinhold HOERCHNER from Kleinschmalkalden, Kurhessen; occupation Landmann, age 24. And from the “Hamburg Emigrants 1860-1869” page 59, we read “HOERCHNER, Reinhold, on the La Rochelle departed 1863.”
Extracts from the Queensland Post Office Directory, show a “Jacob R Hoerchner” as an umbrella maker in Albert Street, Brisbane, 1874; in Ann Street, Brisbane, 1890 (spelt “Hoerschner”); in Wickham Street, Brisbane, 1891 (spelling variation “Hoerschner”); Wickham and Stanley Streets, South Brisbane, 1892. The 1892 Directory also shows a “Hoerchner, F.R., medical electrician”, Stanley Street.
A copy of an oath of allegiance in August 1875 shows a “Jacob Reinhold Hoerchner Brisbane” swearing an oath of allegiance to Queen Victoria, signed by “J. Reinhold Hoerchner, sworn and subscribed at Brisbane this 25th day of August, 1875 followed by the name: - “Jacob Reinhold Hoerchner, Prussian, 36 years.”
There are other extracts from birth, death, marriage indexes indicating:-
1. the marriage on 08.05.1866 of Jacob Reinhold Hoerchner to Caroline Baker.
2. the birth on 02.08.1866 of a son, Arthur; died 25.09.1866.
3. the birth on 20.04.1868 of a daughter, unnamed; died ??
4. the birth on 27.08.1871 of a daughter, Julia.
5. the birth on 05.10.1877 of a daughter, Rebecca.
6. the birth on 24.11.1880 of a daughter, Lydia.
7. the birth on 01.11.1882 of a son, Frederick.
8. the birth on 25.01.1886 of a son, William Richard; died 23.02.1886.
9. the birth on 31.07.1887 of a daughter, Helena; died 20.08.1887, or 20.12.1887?
The death certificate of Jacob Reinhold shows his parents names as David und Anna Marie Hö. from Kleinschmalkalden, Kurhessen, Deutschland.



AU2 - The Wihelmus Johannes Horchner Australian Family Tree.
This story commences in 1950 with the arrival of the Dutch Hörchner family from The Hague on board two ships, the English “The Himalaya” and the Dutch “De Sibayak”. Etc etc etc. this story from 1950 to 2002 is still to be completed by the author, in consultation with his Australian family members. I would suggest this will be a completely separate document on this website. Family data is found under NL6, the Adolf Hörchner Dutch no.9 branch.



AU3 - The Joachim Andreas Hörchner Australian Family Tree.
This story is also still to be written by Dr. Roy Horchner from Biloela, Queensland, Australia, and his extended family in Australia. It may also become a much extended document found elsewhere on this global Horchner Family Tree website. Family data is found under NL7, the Jacob Hörchner Dutch no.10 branch.)


Some German Hörchner Family Trees.

I have been kindly given the records of several family trees of the German Hörchner families from the Thuringer Wald region. Another is of my ancestor from Hahnstaetten, Rhineland-Pfalz. One was given to me by Dr Franz Hörchner of Berlin; and others by the USA Ho/Hoerchner families; and another by Volker Max Werner Hörchner formerly of Waltershausen/Dortmund, now working in Holland. Two are from Kleinschmalkalden, one whose family still lives there, another who migrated to Brisbane, Australia, in 1863. I have named most of these family trees according to the original male ancestor or the present donor of the information - these arbitrary names may help to differentiate the family trees in further discussion.

DE1 - Franz Johann Hörchner (born 14.11.1932) German Family Tree.
His ancestors are:- his greatgreatgreat grandfather - Johann Georg Hö. born in Mittersinn, died in Heilgersdorf married to Margarethe Dorothea Rudolphin.
Their 4 children were 1. Frederike Maria, 2. Johann George Daniel Hö married? Albrechtin, 4. Johanna Eleonore married ? Klein, and 3. his greatgreat grandfather - Jakob Benjamin Hö. 1790-1841, married ? Engelhard.
Their 5 children were
2. Anna Margarethe married ? Geuss.
3. Johann Georg Hö., ausgew. 1848 USA, (this needs to be followed up as a possible US fam tree.)
4. Eva Elisabeth married ? Pfeifer, 5. Joh. Georg Daniel Hö. 1837-1916 married ? Holzmiller, 1. his great grandfather - Heinrich Hö. 1826-1910 married ? Prediger.
Their 3 children were
1. Ernestine Hö. married ? Huss,
2. Johann Georg Hö 1856-1899 (this requires further research as apossible US family tree) and
3. his grandfather Adam Christian Hö. 1861-1924 married ? Thönissen.
Their 1? child is his father Ino Hö. 1896-1982 married ? Götz.
Their 2 children are
1. Ino Franz Josef Hö. 1923-1940, and
2. self Franz Johann Hö. married ? Jäger.
Their 4 children are 1. Ino Bernard Hö. 2. Kathrin Hö.3. Jasemin Hö.4. Melanie Hö.



DE2 - The Christian Hörchner German Family Tree - from Hohenkirchen near Ohrdruf, showing only the German origin and connection.

Christian Hörchner married Marika Marie Kyler (also known in the USA as Mary Martha), in the village of Hohenkirchen near Ohrdruf.
Their 3? children are
1. Wilhelm Hö. who stayed "home".
2. August Hö.
3. Andreas (Andrew) Frederick Hö. 1860-1941.
August and Andrew migrated from Munich to USA in 1879. Andrew returned to Germany, but stowed away back to USA and landed in New Orleans, 1881. August started up in Baltimore, married Martha Weismann. Andrew married 3 times, 1st. Emma Carlotti Witt, (daughter Irma E. Hö/Tressler) 2nd. Clara E. Tidenberg, (nil) 3rd.

DE6 - The Jacob Reinhold Hörchner German Family Tree,
From information supplied 2003 by Elfriede Hörchner, aus Kleinschmalkalden, obtained from the Church Office, Parish of Kleinschmalkalden, dates are as follows:-
1. Anton Hörchner, 1803, married Eva Catherina Vietsch. Children born in Kleinschmalkalden were
1.1 – Johann David, *13.03.1776 +22.03.1860
1.2 – Johannes, *11.11.1778
1.3 – Konrad, *21.06.1785 +07.11.1867
One of these three had a son named Konrad, *14.01.1815 +08.05.1886, “und Bürgermeister auf Kleinschmalkalden 1850-1875”.
From information by John Horchner, 2003, obtained from the Brisbane State Library, Queensland, Australia. An extract from the index to the Hamburg emigrants 1860-1869 shows a Jacob Reinhold Hörchner arriving on the La Rochelle from Hamburg, Germany, to Brisbane, Australia, in 1863, with 443 other German migrants. Jacob Reinhold was born 1839 at Kleinschmalkalden, Germany, to parents David Hoerchner and Anna Maria KONIG. Jacob Reinhold was married 08.05.1866 to Caroline BAKER who died 08.07.1934.Jacob Reinhold died 27.06.1923. They had 8 children. For further details see under “AU1” in Australian Horchner Family Trees.
If we combine the two above informations, one could reasonably assume that David Hoerchner, the father of Jacob Reinhold, was the son, or grandson, of the Kleinschmalkalden family, David 1776-1860. This is still to be verified independently.

NL1 - The Johann Andreas Hörchner (Hahnstaetten) Dutch Family Tree,
with its five numbered & named branches, NL2-6.

The information presented here was collected by my Aunt Hilde, Amsterdam during the 1960-80’s. The Dutch Horchner family tree starts with the arrival in Holland in 1800 of Johann Andreas Hörchner, from Hahnstaetten, Nassau, Diez. He married his first wife in Amersfoort, Holland and his second wife in Amsterdam where they lived in Dirk van Hasseltsteeg 14. Johann Andreas was a “stroop brander” (lit. “syrup or treacle burner”). One of his sons, (3) Wandert Willem Frederik , lived at Brouwersgracht 183, another son, (4) Johann Andreas, lived at Peperstraat 14. Another son, (5) Johannes Petrus, was a boekdrukker ( printer ), married at Scherpenzeel (1835), and at Meerenberg (1851). He also lived in Dirk van Hasseltsteeg 614, moved to number 608 in November, 1855, moved to G430 Lange Lijnbaansteeg in May, 1857, and to Heerenstraat 225 in February, 1858, and to EE246, Heerenstraat 37. The number (8) son, Johann Frederik, was a sailor, ‘matroos aan boord van ZM Fregat “Prins Alexander der Nederlanden”’, and died in Batavia. The number (9) son, Adolf, was also a “stroop brander” like his father, and Adolf’s son, number (9A), Adolf, was a barber. The number (10) son, Jacob was born at home, in the Dirk van Hasseltsteeg in 1833, became a barber, like his nephew, (9A) Adolf, and in 1873, he “verhuisde naar Hoorn” ( shifted to the town of…..) where some of his descendants live to this day. More of these family anecdotes collected by my Aunt will appear in later pages.

This family tree is of course dedicated to my paternal aunt, Brunhilde Horchner (9ACC below), who had the original foresight and energy, and who stimulated my father and myself to follow in her footsteps. This information was given to my father by her when she visited Australia in 1956, and subsequently in 1968, plus her many letters to my parents and my visit to her in Holland in 1974.
Notes:- * means ‘born’; + means ‘died’; nfi means ‘no further information’; early Dutch male/female first name distinction is usually by the use of Latin gender endings eg -a is female; -es, -us, -is, are male endings; -tje is usually the female diminutive; all surnames shown are bolded. “married#2” means a second marriage.
A check in Feb 2004 into Hilde’s original Stamboek showed a number of transcription errors during the 1960-80 transfer of information from Holland to Australia. These have now been corrected. There are still inconsistencies in the Stamboek where a person’s details on different pages are not the same.
