Birck Early Origins



The surname Birck was first found in Bohemia, where the name Birken was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. Records show that the name Birken stems originally from the ancient line of Berka which first appeared in Bohemia around 1003. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
