Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Bomhard family. The Bomhard surname evolved as a local name for a family that lived in Bavaria. In the Middle Ages, the Bomhard family possessed immense lands and became accustomed to the splendors of feudal courts. As members of the landed aristocracy, they played an instrumental role in the social, economic and political development of the Bavarian territories. Their social status was further elevated as many branches of the family obtained estates in distant regions of the German Empire.

Bomhard Early Origins



The surname Bomhard was first found in Bavaria, where the name Bomhard came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates in other areas. This acquisition of new estates combined with their great contributions to society served to enhance their social status.

The Great Migration



Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Bomhard or a variant listed above:
