About the family association


Background

The family association von Schéele-Bergenheim was formally formed in 1979 by the descendants of the children of the two Sergeant major and farmers Herman von Schéele (1823-1875) at Plönninge and Theodor Bergenheim (1823-1903) in the Fjällaregården, both in Harplinge parish in southern Halland.


Already in 1968, these descendants had begun with joint family meetings. The reason for these relatives' interconnection is that three of von Scheleele's children and three of Bergenheim's children were married to each other; in all, von Schéele had eleven children, of whom there are still living descendants in seven branches, and Bergenheim thirteen children (in two marriages), of whom there are still living descendants in ten branches.


Since there are three "double branches", it can be said that there are fourteen different surviving branches in the net. The Plönninge settlers who bear the name von Schéele constitute the whole of the existing main branch of the Swedish noble family no. 2059 von Schéele. Over the years, some other (and therefore somewhat more distant) relatives in both Schéele and Bergenheim side joined the family association.
