Düvels in Belle, Lippe, Germany

Anne Marie Düvels and Joh. Simon Ehlerts

When Anne Marie Düvels married Johann Simon Ehlert in Belle in 1763 she was listed as Anne Marie Düvels of Belle No. 12. There was also a notation "*1730 N- 38.". This indicated her baptismal information. However, this appears to have been an error. Her baptism was "1730, #28" NOT #38. Anne Marie Düvels was also give the designation "No. 12" at the birth of her children, Johann Christoph in 1764, Henriette Marie Friedrike in 1765, Anna Catherine Dorothea Elisabethe in 1769, Heinrich Friedrich Wilhelm in 1771 and Amelia Helene in 1774.

The Duvel family was in Belle from the beginning of the records available through LDS which start in 1691. The first actual record for the name (as copied on microfilm by LDS) was in 1697.

Düvels of No 12, Belle, Having Children Between 1720 and 1746

There were three Duvel families in Belle having children between 1720 and 1746. They were:

  1. Johann Carl Düvels married to Anne Marie Ilsabine (Catherine) Müllenbrock

    These were the parents of Anne Marie Düvels who married Johamm Simon Ehlert.

  2. Johann Hermann Fritz Müherd [Düvels] married to Anne Margerete Düvels

  3. Adolph Düvels married to Anne Marie Ilsabine Nieminjard from Cappel

The records show that all three of these couples had connections to No. 12. Belle
  • Johann Carl's daughter, Anne Marie Lisabeth, was listed at No. 12 Belle at her marriage in 1763.
  • Johann Hermann Fritz had two children baptized at No 12 (in 1741 and 1746).
  • Adolph Düvels had a child baptized at No 12 Belle in 1744.

    8. Death: #62, 1740 8 July Anna Dorothe Dücelings 6 years.

      Note: There was a very high rate of juvenile death with 16 children up to the age of 7 dying in July and August. there must have been some highly contagious and virulent childhood disease going around.

    Death: 1736, 7 June, Belle, Johann Carl Düveling 46 years Text Luc 13.4.5

    "Or those eighteen upon whom the tower fell in Siloe, and slew them: think you, that they also were debtors above all the men that dwelt in Jerusalem?"

    Question: This is a very interesting verse to have chosen. Did something fall on Johann Carl Düvel?

    Note: There were no male children born to this couple, so the Düvel name did not get passed down directly through them.

    Death of Anne Marie Catherine Ilsabien Mollenbrock Düvel:

  2. Johann Hermann Fritz Duvels born Müherd (??), Niedre Belle, No 12, and Anne Margarate Düvel

    Birth: Circa 1703/4. I did NOT find a baptism for him.

    Birth of Anne Margarethe: Circa 1702 per death record. I did not find a birth record for her between 1699 and 1704. She could have been a sibling of Johann Carl Düvel.

    Marriage: 1728 #4 March 30 Joh Hermann Fritz Müherd and Anne Margarethe Düffels von Belle

    "One custom in Lippe that makes genealogy research difficult and sometimes frustrating is when the hereditary of a farm passes to a daughter or widow. The name of the farm is retained, so if the woman marries, her spouse must assume the name of the farm, as do any children produced by them." Fred Richter

    I think that this may be what happened here. There were no children baptized under the name Müherd in the Wobbel/Belle records.

    Based on the estimated year of her birth she was about 26 at the time of her marriage.
