The ancient roots of the Aschaues family are found in the German state of Bavaria. Aschaues was a local name, for someone who lived near a prominent ash tree. The name Aschaues is derived from the Old German word asc, which means ash tree. The local name originated in Bavaria, a region characterized by feudalism, chivalry, and knighthood. Land proprietorship and management were the sole source of wealth and power in the Middle Ages and the Aschaues family, as noble landowners, became prestigious members of the landed aristocracy.

Aschaues Early Origins



The surname Aschaues was first found in Bavaria, where this family became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always 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 and the nation.

Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound.

From east to west, these German immigrants populated the United States, settling in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada also provided homes to many.
