The Honschaft Limminghoven was in the Middle Ages and the modern era, a Honschaft in the parish and judicial district forest within the bergischen Office Solingen . It comprised a small part of the Solingen urban area in what is now the districts of Wald , Merscheid and Ohligs .
The honor existed as early as 1220, when Count Engelbert von Berg divided his County of Berg into judicial districts. At that time, the Limminghoven honors were already one of eight honors in the parish of Wald, which also formed a judicial district from that time on. The honors also have their own chapter in the book of the Solingen rent master Wilhelm Waßmann from 1683/84. The Honschaft was still part of the court and parish of Wald towards the end of the 18th century.
During the French occupation at the beginning of the 19th century and the founding of the Grand Duchy of Berg , the Honschaft Limminghoven was initially assigned as a municipality of the Mairie Wald in the canton of Solingen .
At no time did the honor encompass a larger closed area and did not appear in the following years either. The remaining residential areas of the Limminghoven community, including the titular place Limminghofen , were already listed in the Prussian local registers in the first third of the 19th century as residential areas of the neighboring house of Schnittert , in which they were apparently completely absorbed.
