Uelsen is a community in the district of Grafschaft Bentheim in Lower Saxony.GeographyThe community of Uelsen lies in westernmost Lower Saxony, on the border with the Kingdom of the Netherlands, roughly 30 km north of Enschede and 15 km northwest of Nordhorn.HistoryAbout 690, the groundwork for the great parish of Uelsen was laid, probably by the missionary Willibrord.In 1131, Uelsen was first mentioned in a document by the Bishop of Utrecht. At that time, Uelsen belonged to Twente (now in the Netherlands), which then belonged to the German Empire, as did Utrecht.About 1300, the castle of the Count ten Tooren or von Thurn stood in Uelsen, whose remains were used in the mid-19th century as a synagogue.In 1312, ownership of Uelsen passed to the Count of Bentheim.From the introduction of the Lutheran creed in Uelsen in 1544, and until 1597, the Reformation was taking place.In 1546, under Emperor Charles V, border crossings were sealed and Uelsen was cut off from the Netherlands.In 1580, there was heavy fighting in the Uelsen woods in the Dutch Revolt between the Spanish and the Dutch.
