Pole History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Dutch , English , French , German


The German surname Pole is of occupational origin, based on the trade or profession of the original bearer. In this instance, the name can be traced to the Old Germanic word 'pol', meaning "a small lake on a tract of land," suggesting that the name would be given to one who farmed such land. The surname may also have originated in a nickname. In this case, it would be a diminutive of the Old German word "bohl" meaning "friend." The suffix 'mann' is very common in surnames of Germanic origin, and was usually used to denote ownership.


Early Origins of the Pole family


The surname Pole was first found in northern Germany, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. An early mention of the name is Petrus Pollmann, who was registered at the University of Cologne in 1637.
