The colorful history of Saxony provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Birkholz family. In the medieval era, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The ancient dukedom of Saxony derived its name from the Germanic tribe name the Saxons who inhabited the territory after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Early Origins of the Birkholz family


The surname Birkholz was first found in Saxony, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. The Birckholtz ancestral seat was located in the district of Stendal in Altmark. From here members moved to Mittelmark, Neumark, Saxony, Silesia, Pomerania, and Sweden. They acquired a large number of prominent estates in these regions. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
