Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Gaertner family. The Germans began using hereditary surnames in the 12th century. Gaertner is an occupational name, which was derived from the kind of work done by the original bearer. It is a name for a family whose profession was gardening. The surname Gaertner is derived from the German noun "gartner," which means "gardener."

Gaertner Early Origins



The surname Gaertner was first found in Bavaria, where the family came from noble beginnings as a patrician family of Nuremberg and gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.

The Great Migration

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 Gaertners to arrive in North America, and among them were:
