The House first appears in the year 1233 with the knight Antonius von Schedingen, when he is described as being in the court of the Count of Arnsberg. Members increasingly appeared in religious ministries in the Cologne region. The Scheidingen family died out around 1450 in Scheidingen and the House of Scheidingen was sold. The last person to appear with the name was Johann von Scheidingen, Droste zu Werl, in 1538 with whom the family seems to have died out. The von Scheding family is also documented in the 15th century in Latvia as councillors of Riga and in the 16th century in Livonia. The von Scheden (or von Scheding) family was buried in a family tomb the north aisle of the Hanseatic St. Peter’s Church in Riga, which was later passed on to the Ulenbrock family, and which was referred to there as Ulenbrock’s Chapel. This line disappeared in the second half of the 16th century.
