Arms by Pro Heraldica No. 49771.

The history of the family goes back to the 17th century; the oldest known ancestor Heinrich Hellenthal was born approximately between 1675 and 1690 in Bleibuir which is in the German Eifel.

The origin of the name is connected to the same named town of Hellenthal which lies close to Bleibuir.

As the German Eifel is situated between different border-lines to Belgium, Holland, France, Austria and Switzerland, parts of the family was already connected early to other countries. One of the sons of Heinrich even settled overt to USA, where the family continued to grow and distributed up to Canada.

Later parts of the family settled over to the river Rhine to the city Duesseldorf, but came back to the Eifel and the city of Aachen.

Johann-Paul Hellenthal, born in 1833 was married to Franziska Emilie Chevrolet who was born in France.

Her family origin was from Switzerland, but later they came to France and they owned some cotton spinning factories.

Therefore the armiger chose the wind-rose as a symbol for the distribution of the family in all directions, but also as a leading device back home.

The globe symbolizes the internationality of the family and stands for the travelers of them. But it also reflects the profession of some of the family which has been teachers.

The Southern Cross symbolizes the armiger’s connection to Brazil as his wife, Pollyana Maffra Martins Hellenthal, comes from Brazil. Both live in Brazil and both were founders of the family’s coat of arms.

The colours gold and black reflect those of the German Nations of the Holy Roman Empire, which connects the Latin country Brazil with Germany, as both founders of the coat of arms are Latin and German.

The name “Hellenthal” translated means as much as “bright-valley”. The gold represents the “bright”, and the abased barrulet stands for the “valley”, joining double flanks and forming an “H” for the families’ name.

All symbols in the achievement are nautical, showing the profession of the founder of the coat of arms as a Captain of a worldwide trading ship.
