Geographical Origins of the Bremsers and Brömsers

The Brömser family originated in the noble von Rüdesheim family of many generations ago. More recently, many Bremser's are from the Rheinland-Pfalz and Hessen-Nassau areas of Germany, specifically the town of Niedertiefenbach. However, you will find the name scattered across many towns and villages of the region, including Grebenroth, Nassau, and others.

Family tradition placed Heinrich Bremser's birthplace as Nassau or Singhofen, but Church records did not contain his name. After considerable research, we learned his name was actually Philip Gotlieb Elias Bremser, and he was born in Gerbenroth. Henry's wife, Philipina Klein, was born in Burgschwalbach. Their first daughter was born in Hähnstatten. A great many Bremsers are from Niedertiefenbach.
