Given that Heinrich settled in an area of Germanic immigrants and all of his children have Germanic names the origins of the family is likely German. Although recorded on entry as "Faber" probably a misspelling since FABER is a common German name and Heinrich rapidly used the spelling FAUVER for himself and children in church records, that is likely the proper spelling. Currently in Europe Fauver families are found in England and the Isle of Jersey and Mann. There are Fauverque families in the area Pal De Calis. Some WWII veterans reported that there were Fauver families in the area of Normandy and along the Maginal Line. I have found records of Fauvers in the areas of Zweibueken and Wuertheim in Germany is the mid 1600's. I'm afraid that the break may come from outside of the Fauver family in determining exactly where Heinrich immigrated from. Unlikely that the family fled South to Germany only to journey back to the Netherlands to leave for America.
