The surname Applebaum was first found in the duchy of Brunswick, where ancestors of today’s bearers of the name Applebaum, were part of the Feudal System that later became the backbone of early European society. One of the earliest records of this name is a document in which reference is made to the name, "curia dicta zume appelbume," in the year 1310.
