Early Origins of the Sage family


The surname Sage was first found in Pomerania, previously composed of the northern German provinces of Brandenburg, Prussia, and Mecklenburg, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in a constantly changing territorial profile. Chronicles first mention Johann Sager of Luebeck in 1307.
