Clement History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English-Alt , English , French , German , Italian


German surnames developed at a time when most of the German provinces were states of the Holy Roman Empire. At first people used only a single name, but as the population grew and people began to travel, they began to find it necessary to take on an additional name to differentiate themselves. Fairly general principles guided the development of hereditary surnames in Germany. Two of the common types of family names found in Germany are patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and matronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name.


Early Origins of the Clement family


The surname Clement was first found in Saxony, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into many houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs. The name refers back to St. Clemens, the patron saint of sailors. Individual bearers of this name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Nicolas Clemmenter (1332) of Bohemia.
