Where did the German Schroth family come from? When did the Schroth family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Schroth family history?The distinguished surname Schroth emerged in the former German province of East Prussia. The name is derived from the Low German verb "schroden," meaning "cut" or "chop," and was most likely originally borne by a wood-cutter, a tailor, or a transporter of beer and wine (known in North Germany as a Shröder).
Spelling variations of this family name include: Schroeder, Schroder, Schroeter, Schroter, Shrout, Shroter, Shrouter, Schröder, Schöter and many more.
First found in the northeastern regions of Germany, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would have prominent effects on the development of European history. The name would later be linked to noble families of great influence, having many distinguished branches, and becoming renowned for their involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
