The Siefer Hof
The Siefer Hof

Siefer Hof or Siefen is a district in the Asselborn district of Bergisch Gladbach .


The name Siefer Hof is based on the settlement name Siefen , which referred to an early modern yard that is recorded in the original cadastre with Am Häuschen east of Asselborn. The field name Siefen was transferred to the farm in the 19th century and replaced the name Am Häuschen .

Under the French administration between 1806 and 1813, the Porz office was dissolved and the Dürscheid Honschaft , to which Siefen also belonged, was politically assigned to the Mairie Bensberg in the Mülheim am Rhein arrondissement. In 1816 the Prussians converted the Mairie to the mayor's office in Bensberg in the Mülheim am Rhein district . In 1845 Siefen had 10 Catholics.

In the list of the Kingdom of Prussia for the 1885 census, Siefen was listed as the residential area of ​​the rural community of Bensberg in the Mülheim am Rhein district. At that time, two houses with 18 inhabitants were counted.

The place is recorded on the topographical survey of the Rhineland from 1824 without a name and on the Prussian first survey of 1840 as on the house . From the Prussian new entry in 1892, it is regularly recorded as seven on measuring table sheets .

In connection with the regional reform in North Rhine-Westphalia , the place came in 1975 to the city of Bergisch Gladbach. The street was renamed Siefer Hof in 1976 to avoid confusion. The Wupsi stop is still called Siefen . The name is still used as a settlement name in everyday language and on the official TK 25 maps .
