First, sorry for my english writing. My name is OBENICHE . I live in Paris, France. we did not have lot of information about the origine of our name . I tried these last few years. I found some Obeniche in the center of France . Only 3 of them respond to my questions . One said that we are coming from Czech Republic, with a name Benesh , coming in the vallee du Rhone for the fruit season.
I have found HOBENICHE , OBENICK . The oldest is Benoite Obeniche born in 1621 near clermond Ferrand , center of France and close to Lyon and the Rhone valley.
We are today nearly 50 OBENICHE and 50 Hobeniche. Are we cousins ? sincerely yours. Jean-Marc OBENICHE.
