Schoenberger History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The surname Schoenberger is a toponymic local name; it is derived from a feature of the physical geography where the original bearer lived or held land. In this case it is derived from the German words schoene, which means beautiful, and berg, which means hill.

Early Origins of the Schoenberger family

The surname Schoenberger was first found in Saxony, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history.

However, we must look to the Netherlands to find the first record of the family. For it is there that Annian de Schonau (d. 1293), was Bishop of St. Asaph, and is said to have been a native of Schoonau in the Netherlands. Another source claims that "Schoonau is in the diocese of Treves, conjectured that he was a native of Schoonhoven in Holland. Anian was a Dominican friar, and is possibly the Friar Anian who preached the crusade in West Wales in 1236." [1]
