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

The Kaylor family emerged in the ancient duchy of Swabia, which was in the southwest of Germany. Before the late Middle Ages, German people were known only by a single name. However, as populations increased and people began to travel more, it became necessary to adopt a second name. Many people, such as the Kaylor family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. The name Kaylor is derived from the Middle High German word "kelner," which corresponds to the English occupation of steward. The kelner was the manager of the noble household.
