Schörren (Wuppertal)

Location of Schörren in Wuppertal

The location of Schörren in the Brill residential area in the Elberfeld-West district of Wuppertal goes back to an old place name.


The place is on the northern side of the Nützenberg . Neighboring locations are In der Beek , Falkenberg , Hackland , Am Schaffstal , Auf dem Nützenberg , Varresbeck , Eskesberg and Dorp .


The origin of the name Schörren is not clear, it could be traced back to the Old High German word 'scorro' (= sudden mountain) or to 'scorra' (= field, clod of earth ).


The place name was first mentioned in 1644. In the map series Topographia Ducatus Montani by Erich Philipp Ploennies from 1715, the place with the name ad Schör is shown. 1815/16 the place had 18 inhabitants. On the topographical survey of the Rhineland from 1824, the place is recorded as Schorren .

In 1832 the Schörren belonged to the Dorper Rotte of the rural outskirts of the parish and the town of Elberfeld . The place, categorized as Kotten according to the statistics and topography of the administrative district of Düsseldorf , was designated as on the Schörre and at that time owned a residential house and two agricultural buildings. At that time there were 20 people living in the village, seven of them Catholic and 13 Protestant.

In the address books of 1850 and 1858, Schörren is entered as auf den Schörren , from 1875 in den Schörren . On the topographical map 1: 25,000 ( Mes table sheet 4708) Schörren was last recorded in 1988, on the map from 1993 the name is no longer explicitly noted on the map.

Historical building fabric is no longer available; according to the topographic map, the courtyard was demolished between 1974 and 1983 and rebuilt after 1993.
