Berndt Early Origins



The surname Berndt was first found in Berne, Switzerland, where the family is considered to have made a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. Founded by Duke Berthold V of Zaehringen (in the Black Forest) in 1191, Berne became a Free City in 1218. Against the invading armies of Rudolph of Habsburg, Berne successfully defended itself and joined the Swiss Confederation in 1353. Berne retains its mediaeval character to this day, and has been the capital of Switzerland since 1848. The majority of its inhabitants speak German and are Protestants, a religious heritage left over from the time of the Reformation. The name comes from the German "Baeren" (bears) and a bear still appears on the city's coat of arms. Other branches bearing this name stemmed from the town Berna in Lusatia. The first individual bearers of this name to be mentioned in ancient chronicles include Bernerus miles de Wil, who was born in Zuerich in 1259.
