Bents Early Origins



The surname Bents was first found in Basel, where the name Bentz 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 estates in new regions which, combined with their great contributions to society, served to elevate their social status.
