Absher Early Origins



The surname Absher was first found in Switzerland, where in early times the name Habich came from humble beginnings but later gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the territory's medieval society. It became more prominent as several branches of the family acquired distant estates thereby elevating their social status and position within society.
