Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Eddelman family. The Eddelman surname evolved as a local name. It is a name for a family that lived in Bavaria, where their name Eddelman derives from the German words, edel, which means noble, and mann, which means man. This name literally translates to nobleman, which indicates their rank between the knightly and the general classes of the population.

The surname Eddelman was first found in Bavaria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.

The Great Migration



Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Eddelman or a variant listed above: Anna Maria Edelman, age 54, who was on record in Philadelphia in 1733; David Edelman, age 49, also on record in Philadelphia in 1733; Jacob Edelmann, age 38, who came to New York state in 1875.
