Where did the earliest Kortings live ?
Radwardus Corting was A.D. 1257 Olderman of the city of Groningen (The Netherlands).
In the same period and location are cited:
  • Hendrik Corting
  • burgomaster Fretheric Cortinghe
  • and Peter Cortingh
They lived in a stinse named the Cortinghe-huis (= arx cortingis), north of the city of Groningen. This fortified brick house was regularly under attack of neighbouring peasants and was finally demolished June 29th 1338. Remains of this settlement have been discovered in february 1919 by J. A. Mulock Houwer, the city-architect of Groningen.
The oldest known ancestor is Stephan Kortzinck, Judge in Törten (Dessau Ger), born before 1530.
How many branches are known?
Recent findings show that not all Kortings have one common ancestor. At least 3 to 4 Korting lines originate in an isolated area, having -- by that time -- no connection to another Korting line. How and when they adopted the name 'Korting' has in some cases been assessed. It is therefore most unlikely that all these families have one common origin.
Certain family lines, which have been investigated in depth, are marked:   e.g.   K-1 Bernardus Korting
