    A farm at “Burnheim” was already mentioned in a property register of Aemilius von O (u) we from 1234. This Fronhof was an unpaved, agriculturally used facility, which was later protected against attackers with strong walls. It was evidently a fiefdom of the Electorate of Cologne, because Heinrich von Bourheim fought in the Battle of Worringen in 1288 on the side of Archbishop Siegfried von Westerburg of Cologne. The main building was a two-storey building on a rectangular floor plan measuring around 12.5 × 9 meters and dates from the 15th century.
