Postal history

historical postmark from Bevern

Bevern already had its post office before 1790. It is assumed that it was set up as early as 1743 with the establishment of the driving post from Braunschweig to Holzminden. Letters from this period have a handwritten place note.

The later Bevern post-expedition also existed in the time of the Kingdom of Westphalia . The single-line local postmark "Bevern" is known from this time, around 1812.

After the expulsion of the French, the now Brunswick Post continued with the same stamp. Since 1836 the date has been handwritten in numerals. In 1833 a post office was given for Bevern. In 1852 the postman Friedrich Mönkemeyer (1833–1850) died. His successor was foreman August Uhden as postal expedition (1850–1873), as reported in the Post General Circular. In 1852 the post in Bevern was given the status of a post expedition. In 1854 Bevern received a two-line rectangular stamp. Since 1856 the postage stamps have also been canceled with the grate stamp "3".

The Reichspost called the Post-Expedition in 1870 a Post-Expedition II. Classe and converted it into a postal agency in 1874. Post agent was still August Uhden until 1879, or was that now the son? Hugo Uhden followed him until 1892 and Albert Stuckenberg. Some of the surrounding villages were supplied by the country mailman. Country mail carriers were: Warnecke (1869–1879), Heinrich Jäger (1874–1891), Hartung (1893), August Wächter (1895–1898), August Piepenschneider (1899–1902); Heinrich Steding (1902–1908), Ernst Kippenberg (1909–1915), Gustav, Wilhelm (1909–1913), August Preuss, (1916). In addition to the postal agency , Bevern had a horse station. Postholders were Hartung (1892), Friedrich Fischer until 1895 and Heinrich Steding until 1899, nothing more could be found in the address books.
