Briege Early Origins



The surname Briege was first found in Silesia, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever-changing territorial profile. The name is derived from Brieg, a town on the left bank of the Oder river. It was annexed by Austria in 1675, and then by the Prussians in 1742.
