Thüdinghausen (Lower Saxony)

Location of Thüdinghausen in Lower Saxony

Thüdinghausen is a district of Moringen in the Northeim district and is 4 km south of the city center. The local coat of arms with plow and ears of corn indicates the agricultural tradition of the district.


Thüdinghausen is considered to be the origin of the knight family of the later Counts of Hardenberg .

The assignment of the mention "in Tubrigowe villam quae dicitur Tutinge " from the years 780–788 to Thüdinghausen, which is often classified as the first documentary mention, is questioned. B. related to Döttingen in Taubergau . Even a mention in 978 as Tutinhusen in Codex Eberhardi is related to other localities by some researchers. According to a theory of the 18th century, the name of the place should have its origin in the name of the Saxon god Tüü . According to recent research, the place name is made up of the ending -inehūsen, which is often used in place names, and a stem * Thud- . The determiner is the stem of a short name that can be traced back to the Old Saxon thiod (a) (people, crowd).

At the time of Abbot Saracho von Rossdorf (1053/56? -1071) the Corvey Monastery in Thüdinghausen owned land. This fell to Heinrich the Lion (1129–1195), was connected to Heinrich's property in Northeim (from the legacy of the Northeim Counts) and then belonged to the castle estate in Moringen. This resulted in two large estates in Thüdinghausen, on the one hand the lordly property belonging to the Moringen Castle, and on the other hand the church property (Diocese of Fulda / Archbishopric Mainz).

The knight of Moringen, who resides at Moringen Castle, came from the family of the Counts of Roden. In 1140 his sons were as fief owner of the ducal land ownership in Thüdinghausen under the name Bernard Hermann and Diedrich of Thuttigehusen on. The sons of Hermann von Thuttigehusen later appeared under the name "von Novalis" on the Vorwerk Großenrode, which also belongs to the Moringer Gutshof , and a generation later the sons of Bernhard von Novalis Günther and Hermann were called "Hardenberg".

Between 1466 and 1486, Thüdinghausen was totally burned down three times in various feuds, and the place was also heavily destroyed in the Thirty Years War . On July 18, 1777, a fire destroyed almost all the houses, including the chapel, which was only built in 1742. In its place, a simple half-timbered hall building was built in 1782, to which a tower made of red sandstone blocks was added on the west side in the neo-Romanesque style .
