What to do if apparently during my move, I was evicted but was never served or notified of the hearing?

Now my landlord won’t let me move my furniture or the rest of my belongings out. I want to know what recourse I have.

Given what you have written you are entitled to get your belongings from the unit you rented immediately. I would call and write the landlord seeking such and if your efforts are rejected, you need to consult with a landlord tenant attorney for assistance in getting the items.
