The surname Berstatte is a local name and it is derived from an already existing place name near or in which the original bearer lived or held land. This name is thus a habitation type of name, rather than a topographical name, in which case it would be derived from a nearby physical feature, such as a forest, or stream, or hill. The name Berstatte is derived from the Barony of Berstett, located near Strasbourg, slightly east of Berlin. Many German family names were derived from the names of small villages, royal or noble households, and even large religious dwellings and monasteries.

Berstatte Early Origins



The surname Berst atte was first found in Baden, where the family emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. It is believed that this family was a branch of the ancient Dynasty von Lichtenberg. From the 13th century onwards, the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
