The ancestral home of the Auerbache family was in the German state of Bavaria. Auerbache is a local name for a person who lived in several places in Southern Germany having derived from the Old German words Aurochs, a kind of wild bull that is now extinct, and bach, which means stream. The word auerbach can also mean a marshy brook.

The surname Auerbache was first found in Bavaria, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.

In the medieval era, many different cultural groups lived in the German states. There are thus many regional variations of German surnames from that era. Westphalians spoke Low German, which is similar to modern Dutch. Many German names carry suffixes that identify where they came from. Others have phrases attached that identify something about the original bearer. Other variations in German names resulted from the fact that medieval scribes worked without the aid of any spelling rules. The spelling variations of the name Auerbache include Auerbach, Auerback, Auerbacke, Auerbache, Aurbach, Urbach and many more.

Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Auerbache or a variant listed above: Louis Auerbach, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1852.
