Bissinger Early Origins



The surname Bissinger was first found in Saxony and Anhalt, where the name Bissingen emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. The family von Bissing is believed to have originally come from the Italian region of Savoy, later settling in Meissen at the estate of Seegenstadt. From the 14th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
