1. INTRODUCTION

This booklet, first published in 1995, provides some information about the history of the Heberle family, based on data available in Australia, the Internet and responses to letters and emails.   Computer translations of an earlier version of this booklet are available in German, French and Portuguese.  Much of the information in this booklet is based on incomplete information, with some guesswork.   Please advise me of omissions and errors; as I may revise/update this booklet from time to time.   This booklet is one of a series intended to culminate in the publication of a Heberle book in 2005.

This booklet has been typed in English.   As such, umlauts (German) and graves (French) are difficult to type.   Most Haberles have an umlaut (“) over the a = (ä) (this is often typed as ae in English) and many French  Heberles have graves(/) over one or both e’s = (é).   In general, umlauts and graves have not been used, but may be inserted in a future revision.

5. ORIGIN OF THE HEBERLE NAME

There are numerous surnames spelt somewhat similarly to Heberle.   The first “e” can be “a” or “ae”.   Some Haberles have an umlaut (“) over the a = (ä) (this is often typed as ae in English) and other Heberles have graves(/) over one or both e’s = (é).   Many surnames have different spellings.   Some family members changed the spelling or pronounciation of their surname, eg by adding an e or deleting the umlaut or graves, due to change of language.   In past times, carelessness and a high degree of illiteracy (many people could not spell their names) compounded the number of ways a name was spelt.   Often government officials spelt the name the way it sounded to them.   In Germany in the early days, people were often more concerned with how a name was pronounced, than how it was spelt.   As a result, surnames were often spelt differently on various documents.

 

The origin of the name Heberle is uncertain:

·       It may be occupational in origin, associated with the Germans and Jews, meaning “one who grew or dealt in oats”, from the early German word “Haber” for oats (Hanks and Hodges, 1988).

·       Its also possible that Heberle comes from “Eber”, which is wild boar in German (source: Gonzales).

·       It could be derived from “Heber” which means a loader or carrier (Jones, 1990).

·       According to Heintze-Cascorbi, Hattu/Hadu which means war in gothic, developed into Hadaperth, Habbert, Habert, Hebert, Heberling, Heberle and other names.

·       Heberle and the related names are difficult to pronounce and spell, so have been pronounced and spelt differently at various times and locations, leading to many variations.

·       I believe that Heberle is pronounced Heb-air-lay in German   (He as in bet); Haberle is pronounced Har-bair-lay in German   (ar as in art); Häberle is pronounced Hair-bair-lay in German   (air as in air); Haeberle is the same as Häberle, ie Hair-bair-lay; Héberlé is pronounced Air-bear-lay in French   (H is silent).   Different pronunciation led to different spelling.

·       The first hereditary surnames were used in Germany around 1150 and by about 1450 virtually everyone had one (Hanks and Hodges, 1988).   Prior to then, families had no set surnames.  In France the surname’s transmission from father to son was established in 1539.   Surname changing was common until between 1670 and 1800, when it was stopped by laws in the various German States.   Until then it was common for families to add or delete letters or suffixes such as “l”, “e” and “in” at the end of the surname eg Heber, Heberl, Heberle, Heberlin, Heberlein.

·       According to Hanks and Hodges (1988), hypocoristic (pet name) suffixes -le and -len are characteristic of Swabia (south western Germany, now Baden Wurttemburg); -l is characteristic of Bavaria; -i, -li and -lin are characteristic of Switzerland and Alsace and -ing and -er patronymic (derived from father) suffixes characteristic of Westphalia.

 

Haber/Heber/Eber group names closely and not closely related to Heberle

In my opinion, Heberle is one of a number of surnames derived from Haber, Heber and/or Eber.

·       Family tree data back to 1550 shows that Heberle/Haberle evolved from a number of names, including Eberle, Heberlein, Heberlin, Haberle, Hebeler, Heberlig, Haberling and that a number of names evolved from Heberle/Haberle, including Heberly, Haberly, Heverly, Haverly, Hebrlee.

·       There is evidence that Heberle/Haberle also evolved from or into or is related to names such as Haber, Haberl, Heber, Heberl, Aber, Aberl, Eber, Eberl, Epperlein, Eberlini, Ebirlein, Eberlinus, Hepperle, Erbele.

·       Names such as Heberlee, Heberlie, Heberley, Habberley, Hebley, Heaberle, Haberley as found in Great Britain, USA, Australia and New Zealand are almost certainly anglicised versions of Heberle/Haberle etc.

·       There are a number of Haber/Heber/Eber type names which may not be closely related to Heberle.   These include Eberhart, Heberhart, Ebur, Epp, Eppen, Epple, Eple, Haberer, Haberar, Haberma, Haberman, Habermann, Havermann.

·       Hebert is a common name, perhaps originating from France and probably not closely related to Heberle (it may be related to Herbert).   The same can be said of Ebert.  

·       Some of the Hebers and Hubers are British or Jewish origin and not related to Heberle.  

 

6. WHEN DID THE HEBERLE NAME ORIGINATE ?

The surname Haber was possibly first used from about 1200.   Heberlin, Heberlein and similar names were possibly first used in the 1350s and Heberle first used about 1550.  Bahlow (1985), writing in German, refers to a Cunrad der Heberle of Eger ? in 1357, (Heberlein/Haberlein).   This probably means that the first recorded Heberlein/Haberlein surnames were recorded in 1357 and Heberle was later derived from them.   Brechenmacher (1960) also writing in German, refers to Hainrich der Haberli in 1346, (Haber/Haberle-in/Heberle).   Various “Haber/Heber/Eber group surnames” were in use in the 1200-1600s as listed below.

8. HEBERLE COATS OF ARMS

There are numerous coats of arms for various families within the “Haber group of surnames”.   Below are 16 coats of arms from V & H Rolland’s Illustrations to the armorial general by J.B.Rietstap” (1967), one from (Erard-Heggenzi 1926), one from Wappen Archiv Stuttgart (1983), one from Heberlein 1991 and two from Roberto Heberle of Brazil.

9. HEBERLES IN THE WORLD

Appendix 1 shows the names and addresses of the heads of each of some 1100 Heberle families derived mainly from telephone lists.   Appendix 2 shows on maps, places where Heberles lived in 1994.

Appendix 3A lists names some 90 names probably related to Heberle and estimates of the number of people involved (190000).

This includes data from "Generations World Name Index", “The World book of Heberles” (1997) and “World book of Haberles” (1994).

 

How common are Heberles ?

The following table shows that Heberles are uncommon virtually everywhere, with the exceptions of the Alsace-Lorraine area of France, the Baden-Wurttemburg State in Germany and the State of Montana U.S.A., where Heberles are over 50 per 1,000,000 of the population (over 0.05%).

* Above data based on Appendix 1.   Data in appendix 1 is continually updated and may vary from above table.

 

Languages spoken by Heberles

Estimates of the main languages spoken by Heberles are presented in appendix 1.

Based on that data, about 48% speak German, 20% English, 18% French, 10% Portuguese and 4% other languages.

 

Why are there so few Heberles ?

·       The Heberle/Haberle surname may be relatively recent in origin as it may have evolved from Haber/Heber, Heberl/Haberl and Heberlin, Heberlein, Haberlin, Haberlein; possibly not before about 1500.   The first record of a Heberle that I am aware of is for 1538.

·       Numerous variations of the Haber/Heber/Eber surname have developed, meaning that most of the versions are uncommon.   As Heberle and some similar names are difficult to spell and pronounce, many variations have developed.   By contrast there are very few spelling variations for the very common British surnames Smith and Jones.

·       Some individuals were lost from the family when some Heberles anglicised and changed their names (eg to Heberley) after migrating to USA and other English speaking countries.   Similarly some Heberles possibly changed their names after migrating to other countries eg Heberle to Heberlein ? in Switzerland and Heberli ? in Italy.

·       The Heberle name appears to have originated in the south and west of Germany and the adjoining Alsace and Lorraine area of France.   This area has been hit by numerous disasters over the years eg the Plague in the 1347-51 period which killed some 1/3 of the population, the 30 years war of 1618-48 which reduced the population in many areas by 3/4 and numerous other wars, including World Wars I and II.

 

How many Heberles have there been in the past ?

If the Mormon’s IGI (International Genealogical Index) database is ever completed we may be able to establish the number of Heberles in the 1500s to early 1900s.   At this time we can only guess.   My latest very rough estimate is about 22000, as shown below, based on data in “Heberle family trees 1500-2002”.   Some family tree data is available for c12000  (54%).

Branches of the Heberle family

According to Hanks and Hodges (1988), the places where a surname is most common now, is often where the name originated, or geographically very close to those places.   Very few surnames are evenly distributed throughout a nation.   At present there are large numbers of Heberles in the west and south west of Germany and in the adjoining north-eastern part of France, previously called Alsace and Lorraine, which was once part of Germany.   The Heberle name was probably adopted in a number of places, over a period, ie it is polygenetic, rather than monogenetic (derived from one person).  Branches currently thought to be represented in Germany, France and elsewhere (mainly America) are shown below.  This data is not reliable.  Much more work is required.

Appendix 4 shows possible areas of origin of Heberle family branches.   This data is not reliable.   Much more work is required.

 

How many Heberles have migrated from Europe since 1700 ?   My guess is that some 300 Heberles have emigrated from Germany and eastern Europe, including possibly up to 20 during the 1700s, some 200 in the 1800s (mainly in the 1850-1880s) and about 80 since 1900.   Some of these Heberles changed their names and been lost from the Heberle family.   This estimate is loosely based on the current proportion of Heberles in Germany (19 per 1,000,000), multiplied by the number of Germanic emigrants (some 10,000,000).   This includes some 20 Heberles migrants from Alsace and Lorraine and a few from the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria and Hungary.
