Gisler Early Origins



The surname Gisler was first found in Switzerland, where the family came from the estate of Grueningen in the canton of Zurich, 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 and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
