The German surname Boettikker emerged in the lands that formed the modern state of Lower Saxony, which is presently bordered by the North Sea, the Hartz mountains and the Elbe and Ems rivers. Lower Saxony was previously a medieval Saxon dukedom. In the Middle Ages, many of the Saxon lands were a part of the Holy Roman Empire, which was characterized by the Feudal System. Before this era, people were known only by a single name. However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Many people, such as the Boettikker family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Boettikker was an occupational name for a cooper. Ancient records reveal the name Boettikker is derived from the German word botecher, which means cooper.

Boettikker Early Origins



The surname Boettikker was first found in Brunswick, where the name Botticher contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. Over time, the family branched into many houses where family members continued to play a significant role in the local, social and political affairs.
