The history of the Bart family name begins in the German province of Bavaria. Bart is a nickname surname, a class of German names derived from "eke-names," or added names, that described people by a personal characteristic or other attribute. Bart is a name for a bearded person, derived from the old German word "Bardo," which means "bearded one." Barthe, a variant of the name, is a French local name for someone who lived on a piece of land overgrown with bushes or shrub.

The Great Migration



The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from Bavaria who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. For many Bavarian tenant farmers, the chance to own their own land was a major incentive. So the widespread colonization of the United States began in 1650, when many immigrants from Germany settled in pockets in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. In Canada, German settlement centered in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were:
