Fredrich Huenergardt "The Merchant"
House of Huenergardt

Huenergardts can trace back to a patriarch Friedrich Huenergardt (1841-1923), "The Merchant", and Anna Trott, a cousin to most the present Huhnergarths of Germany. The House of Huenergardt were mainly Protestant Lutheran. Friedrich Huenergardt was the son of Johann Michael Huenergardt (1813-1886) and Margaret Brauer of Stephan, Russia. Johann Michael Huenergardt was the son of Konrad Huhnergarth and Sophia Darlinger of Cservakovka, Russia. Konrad was the son of Johan Adam Huhnergarth (1771-abt. 1851) and Anna Groh of Russia, a Musketeer involved in the Seven Years' War. Johan Adam was the son of Johannes Huhnergarth, a teacher by profession, Abt (1745-1825) and Anna Steuernagel. Johannes was the son of Johannes Jost Huhnergarth Abt. (1707-1787) and Gertrude Arthe. Johannes Jost was the son of Heinrich Huhnergarth Abt.(1677-1757) and Anna Gemer of Helpershain, Hesse, Germany. Heinrich was the son of Barthell Huhnergarth (1641-1699) and Margaret Dörben of Helpershain, Hesse, Germany. Barthell was the son of Velten Huenergart (1608-Abt. 1688) and Anna Dörben of Helpershain, Hesse, Germany. Velten and his brother were the son of Pastor Johann Hindergarten circa (1580-1660) formerly of Quedlinburg, Germany. Johann Hindergarten (Hyndergarten) son of Pastor Peter Hindergart (Hyndergart) most likely migrated to Hesse area from Saxony due to the Protestant reformation. Johann was most likely related to Hans Hindergarthe, former Mayor of Quedlinburg and Pastor George Hindergarten of Bobenhausen (near to Helpershain Hesse). The family Hindergarthe get their name from Johannes Hyndergart (Hindergart) of Allendorff (auf dem Lumme) and further back from "Hindergart" (Riniken) near to Laufenburg, Switzerland. Due to the Black Death that swept Europe in the 14th century, is most likely why the family migrated from Northern Switzerland to Central Germany. The family name has been found with many variations, in Alsfeld, Buedigen, Bobenhausen II, Stumpertenrod, Helpershain, Frankfurt and all throughout Hesse, Germany. The name is also borne to Franzis von Henigart (De Henigart) and brother Philip von Heyngarten (Hennegarten) of Frankfurt, Prince-Bishop of Sion (1522-1529) related to the Uradel family of "de Hengart" that settled in Laufenburg area from present day Henggart, Switzerland but moved to Frankfurt, Hesse. The religious and pastoral traditions of this family most likely sprouted from Philip von Heyngarten appointed by Otto, Count of Hesse and by Rhein, Duke in Bavaria in 1429. Other relatives, the "Lords of Hengart" of this family were friends of the House of Habsburg. The House of Heyngarten (Amhengart) were from Conches, a Burgundian city in present-day France, like many Burgundians settled in Switzerland and was called as the Comtes de Platea, styled Ducal House, in any case belonging to the "Uradel". It could be concluded that this family were seated as a Ducal House of Amhengart (Heyngarten) under the Kingdom of Burgundy, which is referenced by the Heraldry Institute of Rome and references herein below. According to the Heraldry Institute of Rome the House of Hindergarth were seated nobility and early armigers that date back to "time immemorial". A cadet branch of the family "Lords of Hengart" were represented by a silver coat of arms (depicted herein) with one red stemmed and leafed Rose. "Hin der Garten" meaning "Towards the Gardens" in German references the seat of the House of Heyngarten. Other older ancestors also used other names such as, "am Hengart, Amhengart, De Platea) The Coat of Arms of Amhengart, Gules, a Fleur de lis Argent. The differenced coat of arms depicted in respect to the Huenergardt ancestors, a Fleur de lis counter-changed, Gules and Argent, is the claim of right of the current Head of the House, Archie Huenergardt (1937-present), a grandson of Friedrich Huenergardt.
