The surname Detwiler was first found in Basel, Switzerland, where the name Detweiler could be seen as having made a major contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. As the name became prominent in local affairs, it branched into many houses which played important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, as each group sought politcal dominance.
