Fiedler is one of the thousands of new names that the Norman Conquest brought to England in 1066. The Fiedler family lived in or near the settlement of Vis-de-lou in Normandy. Over time, the pronunciation of this place-name changed into Fiedler.

Fiedler Early Origins



The surname Fiedler was first found in Surrey where they were granted lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. The personal Norman name, Le Fidelaire, originated from Normandy.

Fiedler Spelling Variations



Multitudes of spelling variations are a hallmark of Anglo Norman names. Most of these names evolved in the 11th and 12th century, in the time after the Normans introduced their own Norman French language into a country where Old and Middle English had no spelling rules and the languages of the court were French and Latin. To make matters worse, medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, so names frequently appeared differently in the various documents in which they were recorded. The name was spelled Fiddler, Fidler, Fiddlar, Fidlar, Fidelow, Fydler and many more.

The Great Migration



Because of this political and religious unrest within English society, many people decided to immigrate to the colonies. Families left for Ireland, North America, and Australia in enormous numbers, traveling at high cost in extremely inhospitable conditions. The New World in particular was a desirable destination, but the long voyage caused many to arrive sick and starving. Those who made it, though, were welcomed by opportunities far greater than they had known at home in England. Many of these families went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Fiedler or a variant listed above:
