Beyond Swabia

While Storre/ Storrer/Storer/Stohrer/Störer and so forth have thrived in Swabia, some have headed beyond its borders. The web page details some, but hardly all, of those who have moved to the north, northeast and east.

Westernach is north of Schwabisch Hall. Jagsthausen is east of Heideleberg and at the limits of the Roman empire in that region. On the north edge of the Thüringen mountains is Finsterbergen at the end of the road, and in the plains nearby, due south of Gotha, is Schwabhausen. Then to Saxony further east, we find Markneukirchen, tucked in a bit of Germany well south of Leipzig that finds the Czech Republic to the west, to the south, and to the east!.This town is famous for production of musical instruments, examples of which are in the Musical Instrument Museum in nearby Klingenthal.

In northern Germany Storrer has found many spellings as various powers moved into and out of the coastal plans around Rostock.

 Jagsthausen. The Roman ruins are the pride of the town. More interesting, however, to many visitors may be the summer festival held there each year in the yards of the building to the right, the Götzenburg.
