Boenn Spelling Variations



Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Boenn include Bohn, Bohen, Boehn, Bohenn, Bohne, Bohene, Bohenne, Boen, Boene, Boenn, Boenne, Boehne and many more.

The Great Migration



German settlers were among the most common to come to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. Poverty and religious persecution drove many Bavarians to make this long trek. tenant farmers were also enticed by the prospect of owning land. From east to west, these German immigrants populated the United States, settling in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada also provided homes to many. Early settlers bearing the Boenn surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Betu Bohn, who, according to immigration lists, was the first Bohn member to arrive in North America, settling in Pennsylvania in 1728; Adam Bohn, aged 27.
