Behrente Early Origins



The surname Behrente was first found in Saxony, where the family became noted for its numerous branches within the region. Many houses acquired a status and influence which rivaled that of the landed aristocracy. Some branches were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they distinguished themselves through their contributions to the social, political, and economic developments of their regions. The most ancient branches can be traced back to Pomerania and the regions on the North and Baltic Seas, from where they moved south into the Mark region and Saxony. "Berndes" was the original form of the name, and ancient chronicles of the city Greifswald first mention one "Henrik Berndes" in the year 1387.
