Devese is a town in the city of Hemmingen in the Hanover region in Lower Saxony . The former farming village experienced great population growth in the second half of the 19th century due to immigration.


Devese is about a kilometer west of Hemmingen-Westerfeld on a small elevation. In the north, the Ihme stream forms a natural border with the Hanoverian district of Wettbergen . In the west there is a small piece of forest, in the south the larger Bürgerholz and the small body of water Ebelings Teich . In the east of the Devese district, beyond arable land and the new B 3, there are industrial areas that extend to the Westerfeld district. In the west is the next neighboring village Ihme-Roloven , in the south Ohlendorf .


Devese is first mentioned in 1183 as "Vevesse" or "Deuesse". In the middle of the 19th century there were 19 farms. At the end of the 19th century, a mineral water spring was discovered in the west of the village, probably near Tonstich , and exploited as mineral water under the brand name Lloydbrunnen until the 1920s .

With the regional reform in Lower Saxony , the previously independent Devese came to Hemmingen on March 1, 1974.

coat of arms

The design of the coat of arms of Devese comes from the heraldist and graphic artist Alfred Brecht , who designed all coats of arms in the Hanover region. In 1962, the Devese municipality commissioned the heraldist to design the coat of arms. At that time, however, the town did not further develop the design or officially introduced it as a coat of arms. The draft was only taken up again after the regional reform on March 1, 1974.

Devese coat of arms
Blazon : "On red three gold- studded silver roses in position one: two, including a vertical, golden whisk with a short stem."
Justification of the coat of arms: The coat of arms is in the national colors red, white / silver and commemorates the extinct Counts of Hallermunt with the three silver instead of red roses and thus draws on the early history, the Warfschüppe says everything about the centuries of diligence of the villagers.

Culture and sights


  • The chapel Devese belongs organizationally presently Lutheran. Trinitatiskirchengemeinde in Hemmingen-Westerfeld, but was assigned to the church in Ronnenberg until December 31, 1978. Presumably it dates from the years after the Thirty Years War , in which the previously existing fortified chapel was destroyed. The bell was cast by the bell caster Ludolf Siegfried in Hanover in 1643 , as evidenced by the inscription: "The common Defess cast the bells for the glory of God in 1643. Ludolf Siefriet me ficit". This is the oldest reference date for the chapel .
  • In 1819, with the approval of the Koldingen Office, a cemetery was laid out and placed under the teacher's administration.

Architectural monuments


  • The Devese e. V., founded in 1965, has around 120 members (2009).
