Division of the town
The municipality Ostbevern consists of the village Ostbevern, the district Brock and the surrounding farming land.
In 1088 Bevern was first mentioned in an official document under the name Beverne. Presumably in the 12th century the parish Bevern was split into Ostbevern and Westbevern (which is now part of Telgte).
During the Napoleonic Wars the municipality first fell to Prussia, then to Berg. Since 1810 it then belonged to the French Empire, until Ostbevern was assigned to prussia again at the Congress of Vienna. Since World War II Ostbevern lies in North Rhine-Westphalia.
