The German state of Bavaria is the ancestral home of the Azinger family. Azinger is a local name. Azinger is a name for someone who lived in the manor of Azing, near the city Eggenfelden in southern Bavaria. In Bavaria, the Azinger name was very influential because the family became members of the landed gentry early in the Middle Ages. The Azinger formed numerous alliances with other families under the Feudal System and branched into many houses, which each played an important role in the frequent conflicts among noble families over power and status. The numerous branches of the Azinger family were also extremely involved in the social, political, and economic affairs of the region.

The surname Azinger was first found in Bavaria, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area.

Azinger Spelling Variations



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.

The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Azingers to arrive in North America, and among them were: Casper Asinger, who settled in Missouri in 1840.
