Root Name Origins

As a matter of note, the French branch of the family is 'Orscheid' or often rendered 'Ortscheid'. The root of the the rendering of 'Ort', not to be confused with the Greman word 'Ort' or 'Orte' (Meaning a 'Place' or 'Location'), is derrived from 'Eif' (as in the 'Eifel' and Eifel-gau).
In the Middle East, Historically an 'Arscheid' was an Architect or Temple builder. But it has a Nordic root as well which denotes a Wizard, Sorcerer, Magic man or Spiritual Holy Man.

The surname 'Arscheid' may have a Judean root as well in (Yiddish) Yarscheit or Yarzeit. Considering, the root of 'Christianity', or more correctly the 'Nazaryan' (While, existing long before, Abraham, the made-up religion of Judaism or even before the Torah was written- the Qabalah mathematics existed of which the 'Hebrew' Aleph-Tav ( Alpha-Beta- Alphabet) originated and was derived. ), knew what the Yarzeit (Candle) represented, a Holy Man that reached or attained the 'Flame'- the Living Crown ( Halo, Keter ), the Nazirite passing through the Abyss or Da'at and ascending the Tree of Life.

Although there has been habitation on the territory of present Oirschot, since prehistoric times, written documents relatively late present. At that time Oirschot, was from a Frankish settlement, has already become a place of regional significance. Thus there is the holy Odulfus which about 805 was pastor of Oirschot. There is documents that mention making the worship of Odulfus to Oirschot as early as 1150 and 1270 . However, these are younger copies of older documents, which may be based on forgeries. Archaeological finds confirm other occupation during the 8th and 9th century in the vicinity of St. Mary's Basilica. Also was sure from the beginning of the 13th century chapter eleven canons . From the parish of Oirschot founded the parish churches of Oostelbeers , Middelbeers , Vessem and Wintelre . Some influence of the Abbey of Echternach and the Abbey of St. Truiden will have been there, but this was only a few farms.

In secular sense Oirschot was not insignificant. It was a freedom and capital of Kempenland . They knew a fair . In 1513 , a justice house built that, apart from that in 's-Hertogenbosch , was the only one in the Bailiwick of 's-Hertogenbosch . Mr van Oirschot had two castles: Castle Old Beijsterveld near Oirschot and Kasteel Ten Bergh near Spoordonk . Possibly this glory from Spoordonkse Watermill arise.

The lords of Oirschot also Vught got owned, but gradually lost that when the Duke of Brabant in 1196 his own power center in that environment founded: the city 's-Hertogenbosch. The Duke finally got influence in Peelland and Kempenland in 1232 . Thus, a so-called half Oirschot glory: half of the rights was in the hands of the Duke of Brabant and the other half of the Lord of Oirschot, consisting of powerful noble families has also long existed.

Originally formed the Vrijthof at St. Mary's Church the center of the place, was later built St. Peter's Church and the center eventually moved to the vicinity of the new church. It is possible that the Duke was involved in the construction of St. Peter's Church, to found. A new power center also ecclesiastically

In 1320 the old noble family sold the glory Oirschot Rogier van Leefdaal a confidant of the Duke was. Through inheritance, the glory came to the family Van Merode and through a judicial sale in 1672 to the family Sweerts the Landas , a Protestant family, the Old Castle Beijsterveld to 1831 retained, though the manorial rights ran out of time. After it became a mission monastery.

Around 1600 was Peter Vladeraccus active in Oirschot. He dedicated himself to the Counter-Reformation and performed the guidelines of the Council of Trent by. In 1633 , however, came under military escort, the first Protestants in Oirschot, and the Peace of Westphalia in 1648 the tide turned completely. There followed a period of economic downturn and when the new road from 's-Hertogenbosch to Liège was created at the end of the 18th century this was a good distance from Oirschot. The place was by Eindhoven , and in the 1821 divisional Best , drowned.

In the 20th century it came tourism , while ultimately industrialization occurred, originally consisting of traditional businesses such as furniture , later metal , such as Heras, and a company for portable cabins, The Seagull. The advent of the Wilhelmina Canal ( 1923 ) stimulated industrial activity. The place also expanded rapidly because employees of Major General de Ruyter of Steveninck barracks came to live. Oirschot Oirschot is also present along the highway that connects Eindhoven Tilburg.
