Where did the German Hoover family come from? What is the German Hoover family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hoover family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hoover family history?The roots of the distinguished German surname Hoover lie in the kingdom of Bavaria. The name is derived from the Middle High German word "huober," meaning "owner of a patch of farmland." The term "Hube" was used to denote a 40-acre hide of farmland. It is likely that the original bearer of this name was someone who owned such a farm.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Huber, Huberr, Hubere, Hueber, Huebere, Hubner, Huebner, Huben, Hueben, Hubener, Huebener, Hubel, Huebel, Hubeln, Huebeln and many more.
First found in Bavaria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the province. Always prominent in social affairs, the name Huber became an integral part of the region's affairs as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System. The earliest known bearer of the name was Ulrich Miles dictus Huobaere, a resident of the town of Utlenheim in the Tyrol region of Austria in 1224.
