Cohee History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The German surname Cohee emerged in the lands that formed the powerful German state of Prussia, which at one time was an immense German territory that stretched from France and the Low Countries to the Baltic sea and Poland. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the German territories were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The borders of the Barbarian kingdoms changed frequently, but the region that became known as Prussia was roughly divided between the areas of Brandenburg-Prussia, West Prussia, and East Prussia. West Prussia, where the distinguished surname Cohee was born, was nestled between Brandenburg and East Prussia on the Vistula River. It is famous for its ancient cities, such as Danzig, which is renowned for its culture and fine displays of Renaissance art and architecture.

Early Origins of the Cohee family


The surname Cohee was first found in Anhalt, an ancient principality of Germany, where Cohen emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of the region. In the 13th century the surname has been closely associated with the social and economic advancements of the territory's feudal society.
