Bruckner History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
In the Holy Roman Empire, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules, and after the 12th century, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. The name Bruckner, is a local surname, derived from a pre-existing place name. There were several places so named, including ones in Silesia, Saxony, Bohemia and Austria. Local names, when coupled with the German preposition "von," which means "from" or "of" originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate, and indicated that the bearer of the name was an aristocrat. Over the years, the "von" has frequently been dropped from surnames.
Early Origins of the Bruckner family
The surname Bruckner was first found in Schwarzburg, where the name Brueckner 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 new estates, often in areas outside the region, which combined with their great contributions to society, succeeded in elevating their social status.
