Early Origins of the Bodenhausen family
The surname Bodenhausen was first found in Lower Hessen, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation. In later years the family branched into many houses, each of which had a significant role in the local
social and political affairs. The most ancient chronicles claim that the ancestral manor of the family was located in the village of Bodenhausen in Lower Hessen near the border of Brunswick. No trace of this village can be found, but there does exist an estate named Bodenhausen near Ehlen in the Hessian district Wolfshagen, and a region near Goettingen and Fredeland is named the Bodenhausen wasteland.
