Bessler Early Origins



The surname Bessler 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, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. The name derives form the designation Baseler, a person from the Swiss city of Basel.
