An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The Grothaus surname comes from the Low German words "grot(h)," meaning "large," or "great," and "haus," meaning "house;" thus the name may have been topographic, for someone who lived in or by a large house or farmstead,

Grothaus Early Origins



The surname Grothaus was first found in East Prussia, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status. They were originally seated in Courland and Livonia in the 13th century.
