Bierde Nr. 27
The first cadastral map was created in 1828 and proves that another farm of Carl Dietrich Aumann (1800 +1868) stood previously on the site of today’s farm. Friedrich Aumann’s father Carl Dietrich Aumann married on the farm through his marriage to Anne Sophie Marie Louise Busse (1804 +1853) in 1827.

Construction of Thiemanns Hof
Today’s farm is being contructed by master craftsman Aumann. The farm is commonly known as ‘Thiemanns Hof’ (or Tiemanns Hof). Where exactly the name comes from we could not yet find out, but on a cadastral map of the district Minden-Lübbecke this name is at least once registered and in a document of the Loccum monastery from the year 1664 a Herman Tiehmans is mentioned.
Friedrich Aumann’s son Wilhelm Aumann emigrates to the USA and arrives in New York.
Wedding Willhelm Aumann
Wilhelm Aumann marries Emma Charlotte Stahl in Chicago.
Housing for Displaced Persons
After the end of the war, In Bierde, as in some other villages, Russian and Polish people were accommodated. Locals have to leave their homes and farms to create housing for former forced laborers. Thiemann’s farm is also affected.
Transfer of ownership
The childless Friedrich Aumann transfers the farm to seven-year-old Marie D. from Bierde. Hanna Blomenberg was Marie’s great-grandmother.
Farm rented out
After the war, the farm was rented to German expellees (Heimatvertriebene) and later to a teacher.
Neighbors who’s own farm had burned down are temporarily living at Thiemann’s farm while they rebuild their own farm.
Thiemanns Hof was registered as an architectural monument of the city of Petershagen.
On the ground floor, the work is largely completed and we can finally move in.
