Billrod Early Origins



The surname Billrod was first found in Thuringia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century on the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. The surname name most likely derives from (or lent itself to) the town of Billrotha in Thuringia, and from there the family spread to various parts of Germany.
