ROHEL name ( )
Our family thought the Surname was rare and Czech, since our Dad's family came from Paskov (near Ostrava), Moravia, Czech Republic. Imagine our surprise, to find out how many Rohel's exist in the World & how far back the surname goes. ROH = Horn, Corner in Czech and as children in Šternberk (Sternberg), Moravia. *Rohlík "popular Czech bread stick" - was sometimes a nickname given to us in childhood.

ROHEL Name is of Dutch (Netherlands) origin, spelling variations include: ROHELS, ROELLCHEN, ROELLCH, ROEL, ROELLICHS, ROELS, ROHELICHEN, ROHELES, ROHL, ROHLLCHEN, ROLLICKEN, ROLLKEN, and many more..*Reginheim - Heathen sanctuaries; According to the Roman historian Tacitus the Germans worshipped their gods on holy places in nature. From Medieval sources, like the 9th century "Indiculus superstitionem" and the laws to fight heathenism that were created after 775AD by Charlemagne "geni my 7th cousin 50 times removed's wife's sister's husband", we can distinct between three types of holy places: • Hills, rocks and stones; • Flowing rivers, lakes, bog swamps and wells; • Forests and trees. The Netherlands still has quite an amount of sanctuaries that date back to heathen times. Places with the word "Hel" in their names. Research indicates that places with Hel-names in the Netherlands are mostly located near the north side of the nearest building centers. Often there was a water pool there that was seen as the door to Hel (the world of the dead). In Old-Saxon this door was called "helldor". The Germans localized the world of the dead to the North, while this was unimportant in later Christian legends. The name of the constellation Grote Beer/La Grande Casserole/The Plough/The Big Dipper, which the Germans used as orientation to find the north, was "Helwagen". (Hell-wagon) The myths also locate Hel in the north. In heathen grave fields the skeletons are positioned in a North-South direction, something that also points to the belief that the land of the dead was to the north (Christian graves have an East-West direction). Names with the word "Hel" in Frisia are among others: ROHEL near St. Jansga, Augustinusga, Bolsward and Slappeterp, and ROHEL (West Frisian: Reahel, map Skarsterlân, Schoterland, Scharsterlaand) is a small village in in the province Friesland in Netherlands and has around 230 citizens (2004) ..In Rohel there was a transit camp for Jews during World War II. Before the war, it housed unemployed people who worked in the peat bogs.."

ROHEL, variant of the Surname ROCHELLE (English origin). One of the earliest references to the family name Rochelle dates back to 1224. Other variants of the surname are ROTCHELL, ROCKELL, ROCKALL and in France ROCHEL, LAROCHELLE and LAROCHETTE.. *A form of ROACH, is of local origin, deriving from a geographic feature, either natural or man made, near where the initial bearer once resided or held land. In this instance it is derived from the Middle English or Old French "roche" (later replaced in England by "rock", from the Norman by form"rocque"). Therefore, the progenitor of the surname was someone who lived by a rocky crag or outcrop. Some early examples of the Surname derive from various places in Normandy, as for example Les ROCHES in Seine-Maritime, named with this word. In that case, the name would be toponymic in origin, and the progenitor was someone who hailed from a place named La Rochelle, Les Rocehes, etc.

Early ROHEL's found on the internet are: 1) Curtis George ROHEL born 1/21/1093 "source Ernest Self" and 2) Gilbert de ROHEL (The Bickerstaff Story) ..."In the rental of the county for 1226, Alan son of Bernulf was said to be holding Bickerstaffe, paying the customary 5s, and in 1246 Alan de Bickerstath claimed a third of the manor against Adam de Bickerstath, Simon his brother, Gilbert de Rohel, Roger and Walter de Bickerstath.." . ROHEL surname was quite common in 18th century Moravská Ostrava, Přívoz, Mariánské Hory (Lhotka), Vítkovice, Nová Ves, Zábřeh, Czech Republic, throughout the World, most being in France and on Geneanet web site

ROHEL& Napoleon (*geni my 3rd great aunt's sister's husband's 1st cousin's wife's 2nd great uncle) "source Jan B. of Czech Republic: My grandmother was born a ROHEL and had 5 sisters, all of them born in Palkovice (10K from Paskov near Ostrava), Moravia. My grandmother's sister Libuše ( -1999?) told me 7 years ago (1997) a story about my ROHEL ancestor's, as she was interested in genealogy and had a Tree dating back to 1805. Somewhere in Normandy, France lived an old aristocratic's kin. At the beginning of the 19th century when Napoleon assumed power, two ROHEL brothers had to solve a question of life. They were against Napoleon and he gave them a choice. They could join him or he would kill them and confiscate their properties. Not having much of a choice, one brother chose to immigrate to USA and the second escaped to Palkovice. The other ROHEL relatives presently live in Šternberk and Újezd (Olomouc), Moravia." *which one? Šternberk, Moravia (where our dad Miroslav arrived in 1947 from Paskov) or Český Šternberk, Bohemia?

ROHEL Le Conquérant(English)  French 14 vol. Science Fiction books by Pierre Bordage. I asked Pierre, why he chose the name ROHEL? His reply was:

"The ROHEL name of my character, was invented by my self. I was unable to guess, that some people in the world really had this name. ROHEL sounds like angel or archangel name, that's it. It mean's nothing in France. Good luck with your Genealogy. Let me know if you find something interesting with your name.

..............Friendly, Pierre Bordage". 

ROHLE - Town (obec)and Rohelská bouda (south west of Šumperk, Moravia, Czech Republic "..seems to Derive from  the family name ROHEL and is situated on the ROHELNICE river. The first mention of ROHLE is in 1356, but because it was already natural centrum of Dubicky barony?, so called Zalesi (woodland) and already had a church, it was certainly established much earlier. It changed ownership many times. From the beginning, one part belonged to Zábřeh and the second part was not long after attached to close by Castle Brníčko. It was only a matter of time when a union would occur under one owner, and that happened before the year 1447, under the clan Tunklové z Brníčka a na Zábřehu. At that time ROHLE was definitively attached to Zábřehsky barony, where it stayed until 1848.. Average number of residents 626 (1900-1991).."
