Schönfeldt History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The German state of Silesia is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Schönfeldt. In the medieval era, Germany was fragmented and inhabited by numerous Barbarian tribes, who fought amongst themselves for control of the land. The ancient dukedom of Silesia derived its name from the Germanic tribe named the Silingers, who occupied Silesia between the 2nd and the 6th centuries.
