The German surname Bremme 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. The name Bremme, which is a local surname, reveals that the original bearer of the name once lived, held land, or was born in this beautiful region of Lower Saxony.

Bremme Early Origins



The surname Bremme was first found in the county of Oldenburg, where the name became noted for its many branches with the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the family became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. The name Bremen was applied to people who originated from the Free City of Bremen, first chosen as a residence by the bishop Willehad in 787.
