Where did the German Buckthalle family come from? What is the German Buckthalle family crest and coat of arms? When did the Buckthalle family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Buckthalle family history?

The colorful history of Germany provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Buckthalle family. The name Buckthalle, which is a local surname, reveals that the original bearer of the name once lived, held land, or was born in this beautiful region. In the Holy Roman Empire, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and after the 12th century, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. When coupled with the German preposition von, which means from or of, local names can indicate that the bearer of the name was an aristocrat. However, in modern times, the von is frequently dropped from the surname.

In the medieval era, many different cultural groups lived in the German states. There are thus many regional variations of German surnames from that era. Westphalians spoke Low German, which is similar to modern Dutch. Many German names carry suffixes that identify where they came from. Others have phrases attached that identify something about the original bearer. Other variations in German names resulted from the fact that medieval scribes worked without the aid of any spelling rules. The spelling variations of the name Buckthalle include Buchthal, Buchthall, Buchthale, Buchtel, Buchtell, Buchtele, Buchthalle, Buchtal, Buchtall, Buchtalle, Buckthal, Buckthale, Buckthall, Buckthalle, Bukkthal, Bukkthale, Bukkthall, Bukkthalle, Beuchthal, Beuchthale, Beuchthall, Beuchthalle, Beuckthal, Beuckthale, Beuckthall, Beuckthalle, Beukkthal, Beukkthale, Beukkthall, Beukkthalle, Buechthal, Buechthall, Buechthale, Buechtel, Buechtell, Buechtele, Bochtel, Buckthal, Buchtel, Becktell, Bechtel, Bechtele, Bechtell and many more.

First found in Schwarzburg-Sondershausen, where the name Buchthal was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society of early European history.
