Thuringia, which is located between Hessen and Lower Saxony in the west and Saxony in the east, is the noble birthplace of the name Schwartz. It is derived from the low German word "Schwarze," which means "black," or "swarthy."

 More

The surname Schwartz was first found in the Thuringian region, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System. Chronicles trace the use of "Schwarz" as a name as far back as the seventh century, when two brothers, "der schwarze und der weisse Ewald," worked as missionaries in Westphalia.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Schwartz, Swartz, Schwarz, Schwartze, Schwarte and others.
