The name Van Beneden is thought to be a habitational name, taken on from a place name, perhaps from Niederhausen, in the district of Bad Kreuznach in Rhineland-Palatinate, in western Germany.

Van Beneden Early Origins



The surname Van Beneden was first found in Bavaria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
