The surname Beidler was derived from Middle High German word "biderbe" which means "honest, upright" and one of the first records of the name was Biderbeman sacerdos [priest] in 1262. The next record of the name was in the 14th century when Duke Leopold de Biderbe was listed. 
The surname Beidler was first found in Switzerland, 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. In later years the name branched into many houses in Switzerland, Austria and Saxony, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs.
