Looking for any connections or information. Ernest and Ottilie Hansche, came from Germany to New York. Ernest was born 1844 in Germany. Married Ottilie Lange in New York 1875. They had 11 children-Anna Traulsen, William, Bertha Blaikie, Mary Reilly, Ernest, Nellie Brinkerhoff, Hattie Nelson, Margaret Fischer, Julia Brown and Ruth. They lived in New York, Mass. and then Jersey City and Bayonne. Ernest and Ottilie died in 1925 and 1919 in New Jersey. I wonder if Ernest could be related to any of the Wisconsin Hansche's?
The Hansche's were in the copper business in Germany. Ernest's father was Wilhelm Ludwig Hansche.

I am one of the Racine Hansche decendants. William Hansche, b 1827 Prussia Germany He immigrated from Germany in 1840 and moved to Wisconsin in 1845. William married a Mary Heck, also of Germany, in 1860. I have record of William and Mary having four children: William Jacob, Fred, Louis and Katie. As Ernest was born in Germany 4 years after William Hansche immigrated, they may be cousins.
I am decended from William Jacob.
Hansche is not a common name. Also, I have a book on Racine & Kenosha counties. In those books these ancestors' names are spelled 'Hensche'.
I hope this helps.
Sincerley,

Thanks for replying. I have never been in contact with any Wisconsin Hansche's and have always wondered if there was a connection. Wilhelm Ludwig Hansche is Ernest Wilhelm Hugo Hansche's father. I have been told these Hansche's had a copper business in Berlin. Also when Ernest came over in 1869, some uncles came with him. Some of them went to the midwest to grow wheat and one stayed in Brooklyn and opened a copper shop.No proof , just stories. Ernest was in the German Navy before coming to US, and after that is always listed as seaman, or boatman. If you ever come across these names in your Hansche research, I'd really appreciate hearing from you. I'd be glad to share information anytime. Thanks, Christine

I am Rosalee (Hanzsche) Rodkey. I am not sure there is any connection with my direct family but it is interesting that my ancestor John Godfrey Hanzsche came to the U.S. in the 1830s from Hanover Germany. He was a book printer and came to Baltimore Maryland where he married Henrietta Charlotte Hall. They then moved to Cincinnati Ohio.
The name is not that common and although some branches of the family have dropped the "z" it maybe that there is some connection.
If you find some thread or are curious, please contact me at

I have just posted two baptismal certificates that were printed by Johann T. and Johann Godfrey Hanzsche in my son in laws tree. Would appreciate any information on the parents of these two ancestors before coming to America.

Do the baptism records have information as to where these two Johann Hanzsche(s) were born? I have 3 books on the Hansche (Hunsche originally)families from around the Lienen, Germany area. They are written in German and, unfortunately, I don't read or speak German but I can kind of muddle through some things by knowing a few important words in German like born and died, etc.

If you are still out there Rosalee.........re: yours from 2005....
I have been searching for info on Henrietta Charlotte Hall for years. Might you have a birth date, or know where she was born? I know of a sister (Dobell), but have no info on her parents either. I am a decendant of her daughter Margaret Virginia who married Samuel Bailey in Cincinnati.
Thanks

Did your Hansche family come from the little town of Lienen in Germany? There are several books by Fredrick Hunsche (the original spelling of Hansche) regarding the Hansche/Hunsche families from Lienen. Unfortunately for us who neither speak nor write German, they are, in fact, written in that language.
