The colorful history of the German region of Silesia provides the setting for oldest origins of the Kärge family surname. The name Kärge comes from the Middle High German word "karc," meaning "cunning," or "sly." As such, the surname was most likely originally a nickname which later became a surname.

Kärge Early Origins



The surname Kärge was first found in Silesia, where this family made important contributions toward the development of this district from ancient times. Always prominent in social and political affairs, the family formed alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. Ancient chronicles first mention Heinczel Kergel of Prague (c.1321,) Nicolaus Karger of Olmuetz (c.1361,) and Wigund Karge of Hessen (c.1265).
