The Bumgardner surname means orchard in German, and was probably originally occupational
for someone who worked in an orchard, or topographical for someone who lived in or near an orchard. There are also several villages named for this word.
The surname Bumgardner was first found in East Prussia
, where the name came from noble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status. They are believed to have been of the order of the Teutonic Knights.
