The German state of Bavaria is the ancestral home of the Aschaür family. Aschaür is a local name, first used as a surname for someone who lived near a prominent ash tree. The name Aschaür is derived from the Old German word asc, which means ash tree. The local name originated in Bavaria, a region characterized by feudalism, chivalry, and knighthood. Land proprietorship and management were the sole source of wealth and power in the Middle Ages and the Aschaür family, as noble landowners, became prestigious members of the landed aristocracy.

Aschaür Early Origins



The surname Aschaür was first found in Bavaria, where this family 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



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Aschaürs to arrive in North America, and among them were: Friedrich Aschauer, who landed in Texas in 1846.
