Burkham Early Origins



The surname Burkham was first found in Swabia, 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 family originated as a branch of the Andlau family and took their name from the castle and village Middle-Berkheim near Strassburg. The family acquired extensive estates and became knights of Swabia in the Neckar-Schwarzwald and Ortenau regions.
