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

Medieval Silesia is the birthplace of the noble Stoltz family. The Stoltz surname is derived from the German word "stoltz," which means "proud," and as such, it was most likely originally a nickname, which became a hereditary surname.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Stoltz, Stolz, Stoltze, Stolze, Stolt, Stolte, Stoetzel, Stoltzel, Stolzel, Stolzer and many more.

First found in Silesia, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging province which would later play a role in the national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in local social and political affairs.
