    Already in the 13th century the Else was mentioned under the name Elsens von Els (alder) and Ana (river). According to legend, the river takes its name from the beautiful miller's daughter Else, who found her sad end in the floods of the river. Perhaps the numerous alders on its bank gave the Else their name. The origin of the river itself remains a mystery to this day. Probably the best known and at the same time controversial variant is the bifurcation, a river bifurcation. This rare phenomenon divides the water of the Hase and creates two rivers, the Hase and the Else. The natural development of the bifurcation is repeatedly questioned. It could also be just a branch canal that was dug in the 15th or 16th century to connect the Hase with the parallel Uhlenbach. Thus, the Krusemühle and the Osnabrück mills could be driven by the Hase, the water of the Else filled the moat of Gesmold Castle and drove the Gesmold mill on.Source: Herford district
