An old German citizen family of the 15th century, a native from the province of Brandenburg.

It is documented, that in the year 1652 the landowner and farmer Wilhelm Friedrich Kornrumpf was decorated with the family seal and the great Coat of Arms in parchment paper from the Prussian royal government for his best works for his fatherland.

During the 30 years battles (Swedish Wars) W.F. Kornrumpf has given large parts of land all the hungry and needy people without money. For these works W.F. Kornrumpf was honored and decorated from the Prussian King-House.

Descendants emigrated in the following generations to Netherlands and North America.
