Coat of arms of those of Syberg

Syberg (also Sieberg, Sieberger, Syburg ) is the name of an old Westphalian noble family that belonged to the ancient nobility of the county of Mark . The name of the sex is derived from the Syberg (today part of Dortmund ), which belongs to their ancestral home Haus Busch ( Hagen ) .


Hohensyburg is a hilltop castle of the Archbishops of Cologne and is related to the state expansion in the 12th century. In 1235 the Lords of Syberg are mentioned for the first time as Cologne ministerials . After the partial destruction in 1287 by Count Eberhard von der Mark , the family withdrew to their property Haus Busch in the county of Limburg .

The lineage of the family begins with the knight Hermann von Syberg , documented in 1377, who sat on the Haus zum Busch an der Lenne. As a name, 'von Syberg zum Busch' was also used. Later the Sybergs sat in Westhofen , Busch House (1369–1827), Wischlingen House (1511–?), Voerde House (1563–1764), Kemnade House (1647–1847), Kliff House (approx. 1650–1681), Burg Blankenstein (1637–1647), Aprath Castle (approx. 1650 – approx. 1750) and Eicks Castle (16th century until today). They also spread to Livonia and Prussia , there also under the name ' von Syburg '.
