The dynasty first appears in a document in 1233 with the knight Antonius von Schedingen, when he is mentioned as being in the retinue of the Count of Arnsberg. In the Cologne area, members increasingly appear in the service of witnesses. The Scheidinger family on Scheidingen died out around 1450 and the house of Scheidingen was sold. The last person to appear in 1538 is Johann von Scheidingen, Droste zu Werl, with whom the family seems to have died out. The von Scheding family is also mentioned in documents in Latvia in the 15th century as councillors of Riga and in Livonia in the 16th century. In the Hanseatic St. Peter's Church of Riga, the von Scheden (or von Scheding) had their hereditary burial in the north aisle, which they later bequeathed to the Ulenbrock family, where it was known as the Ulenbrock Chapel. This line became extinct in the second half of the 16th century.
