Goetze Early Origins



The surname Goetze was first found in Franconia, later Hessen, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. The family descends from Franconian German Knights who expanded their territories eastwards, eventually acquiring estates in Brandenburg such as Zehlendorf and Zuehlendorf. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
