The surname Engelbertz emerged in the ancient German province of Westphalia, which lies between the Rhine and Wesser rivers. Two of the common types of hereditary surnames found in the Westphalia were patronymic surnames, which were derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which were derived from the mother's given name. The surname Engelbertz was derived from various Germanic personal names. The name Engelbertz is a short form of given names such as Engelbert or Engelhard.

Engelbertz Early Origins



The surname Engelbertz was first found in Bremen, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs.

The Great Migration



For many Germans, emigration to North America was an inviting alternative to the trials of life in the old country. From the mid-17th into the present century, thousands of Germans migrated across the Atlantic. They capitalized on the chance to escape poverty and persecution, and to own their own land. After 1650, Germans settled throughout the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also landed in Canada, settling in Ontario or father west on the rich land of the prairies. Among them: Adam Engel, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1754; Christian Engel, who settled in Philadelphia in 1787; Heinrich Engel, age 30; who arrived in New York state in 1877.
