The name Althuyzer is derived from the German words "alt," which means "old," and "haus," which means "house." As a surname Althuyzer may have arisen describing someone who resided in an ancient dwelling; or it may come from one of several place in Germany called Althaus.The tradition of adopting hereditary surnames came to Germany after the 12th century, and the names of places where people lived were a primary source. Many of these local names carry the prefix "von," meaning "of" or "from," which originally indicated land ownership, and was sometimes a mark of nobility.

Althuyzer Early Origins



The surname Althuyzer was first found in Muensterland, Westphalia, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. Chronicles first mention Conradus de Oldenhus, a family in Muenster, in 1353.
