The German state of Bavariais the ancestral home of the Beutler family. Hereditary surnames began to be used in Germany during the 12th century. Names like Beutler, that came from the name of the job done by their initial bearer, were very popular. Beutler 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 Beutler family was responsible for making the barrels that held ale, beer and wines. In Bavaria, the Beutler family became renowned for its many branches and for the influential role it played in the social, economic and political development of the region.

Beutler Early Origins



The surname Beutler was first found in Bavaria, where the name Buttner became noted for its many branches within the region where each house acquired a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. Over time, the family became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility.

The Great Migration



The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from Bavaria who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. For many Bavarian tenant farmers, the chance to own their own land was a major incentive. So the widespread colonization of the United States began in 1650, when many immigrants from Germany settled in pockets in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. In Canada, German settlement centered in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were:
