Early Origins of the Guttenberg family


The surname Guttenberg was first found in Hamburg, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. Gude is also connected to several place names in the Holstein region.

A Herman der Guot is on record in Suz in 1236; and a Gerhard de Guden was on record in Kolberg in 1277.
