The German state of Bavariais the ancestral home of the Beutel family. Hereditary surnames began to be used in Germany during the 12th century. Names like Beutel, that came from the name of the job done by their initial bearer, were very popular. Beutel is an occupational name for a cooper or a barrel maker. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the German word Bute, which means cask or wine barrel. In the Middle Ages, the Beutel family was responsible for making the barrels that held ale, beer and wines. In Bavaria, the Beutel family became renowned for its many branches and for the influential role it played in the social, economic and political development of the region.

The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Beutels to arrive in North America, and among them were:
