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

The ancestral home of the Deyoung family is in the German province of Bavaria. Deyoung is a German nickname surname. Such names came from eke-names, or added names, that described their initial bearer through reference to a physical characteristic or other attribute. Deyoung is a name for a young person or the junior member of a family or community, being derived from the German word "jung," which means "young."

Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Deyoung include Jung, Juenger, Jungg, Junge, Jungge, Jungher, Jungblut, Jungbauer, June, Deyoung, Young, Jungbluth, Jungblud, Deshong, Jonker, Junker, Jungling, Jüngling and many more.

First found in Bavaria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. The name "Jung" (English: Young) had the original meaning of "junior," an addition to a name which would reflect the bearer's status or age, as well as distinguish him or her from the father, or "senior."

European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Deyoungs to arrive in North America, and among them were:
