The Esterhazy family name is thought to be habitational, deriving from the name of a now-lost settlement called Esterháza near Dunajská Streda in present day Slovakia.

Esterhazy Early Origins



The surname Esterhazy was first found in southwestern Slovakia, part of the Kingdom of Hungary at the time, where they were low gentry. From 1421 on, they were the owners of a property in Galanta, and Ferenc Zerházy (1563-1594) was elevated to the title of Baron of Galántha. The family further rose in prominence under Count Nikolaus Esterházy (1583-1645) and his son, Prince Paul Esterházy (1635-1713).
