The name Hedemann has in the USA the variance Hedeman and in Europe as "von Hedemann" and in East-Frisia exists the name Heedemann (Johann Hermann Gerhard Heedemann * 01 Feb 1846 in Großefehn, OFL. The origin of Hedemann/Hedeman/Heedemann started in the village Helle at the Zwischenahner Meer. The name was first mentioned in a document from 1134, the farm Hedemann in the year 1190. The oldest known Hedemann with a first name is Robe Hedemann * ca 1460. His grandfather is named in the "Oldenburger Salbuch" as "Hedemann thor Helle".

von Hedemann is orginated in Hoya with Friedrich Hedemann * ca 1465. Es spricht alles dafür, dass dieser Friedrich von den Hedemanns aus Helle abstammt. In his document I try to explain this thesis:
