Early Origins of the Banel family

The surname Banel was first found in East Prussia and Silesia, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society.

Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.
