Branch UBAGHS Denmark



According to the story of some descendants a number of brothers from the Ubags-Clement family became engaged in a fight at a fair somewhere in Germany, where possibly someone died. Thereupon the brothers fled, two of them in the direction of Denmark. Where this all happened is not entirely clear. Possibilities are Dingen or Mengede. In Dutch files ( Dingen is mentioned as the birthplace of Arthur grandchild of Joannes Franciscus Ubags. However, on a certificate of Dutch citizenship, issued in 1944 in Heerlen (Bewijs van Nederlanderschap) Mengede is mentioned as the birthplace of Arthur. Both Mengede and Dingen are known to be suburbs of Dortmund, and it was a well-known mining area, so understandable to move there from Limburg, which was also a mining area. We therefore assume that this branch of the Ubaghs family (Max and possibly some brothers) lived near Dortmund for a while. We rule out that the Dingen, a small village (now 680 inhabitants) in Schleswich-Holstein in the Kreis Ditmarschen, close to the Danish border, is the birthplace of Arthur. In any case one of the two brothers founded this Danish branch of Ubaghs. Most likely Pieter Joseph Hendrik is the Heinrich Ubaghs, father Nelly and Peter Ubaghs at the origin of the Danish branch following here below. That the name of Ubags turned to Ubaghs is no surprise; that has happened many times in the history of the Ubachs/Ubaghs family.


CXII.7  Joannes Franciscus UBAGS, born on 07-12-1850 in Klimmen, Province of Limburg in the very south of the Netherlands. Profession shoemaker.

Married on 04-11-1874 in Amstenrade with Maria Helena CLEMENT (witnesses Joannes Leunissen and Hubertina Clement), born on 02-07-1847 in Metman (D), daughter of Jan Hendrik Clement and Maria Catharina Leunissen.

Child (one of several):

5.         Pieter Joseph Hendrik (Heinrich) UBAGS/UBAGHS, born on 16-09-1881 in Amstenrade (witnesses: Martina Angelina Stijpers, Henricus Josephus Clement, Maria Mechtildes Heijnen, Gerardus Petrus Gielen) (see DK-XIII.1).

In a Danish pedigree it is mentioned that Heinrich was born on 12-10-1890 in Dortmund (D), from the parents Johann Ubaghs and Maria Magdalena Clemens. This may be related to the story of fleeing from Dortmund-Germany.

We assume that he is the founder of this Danish branch of UBAGHS.
