A settlement in the area around Heuerßen can be proven for prehistoric times. In 1891 an Iron Age burial ground with around 40 urns was uncovered, dating back to around 600 BC. Was dated. A 1932 free-laid grave mound proved to be the tomb of a warrior from the Bronze Age . During expansion work on the B 65 in 2015, after previous field inspections , archaeologists discovered the remains of a settlement from the pre-Roman Iron Age , which in northern Germany dates from around 750 to 30 BC. Is dated. The finds include ceramic shards and spindle whorls . The site is east of the Lohhof directly on the main road where Hellweg used to run.

It was first mentioned in a document in 1224 as Hoiersem . The occasion was the transfer of a Hufe Landes to the Bischoperode monastery near Stadthagen . Older documents are described by historians as subsequent forgeries and were burned during the Second World War in 1943 during air raids on Hildesheim . When the old Grafschaft Schaumburg was divided up in 1647/1648, Heuerßen became part of the Lippe part and thus later became the Principality of Schaumburg-Lippe. Here the community belonged to the municipal office of Stadthagen; from 1884 to 1899 then to the district office district Stadthagen-Hagenburg. The district of Stadthagen was responsible from 1899 to April 1948, then the district of Schaumburg-Lippe until July 31, 1977.

From 1871 to 1920 Heuerßen and Reinsen formed a rural community. In 1928 the Lohhof was incorporated. By the end of the 1960s, the place had fewer than 300 inhabitants.

Here too, Kobbensen is referred to as a rural community in 1871.


In 1293 the Lohhof was first mentioned as curiam Lohof . It was on Hellweg , which ran roughly along today's B 65.
