Harburger Early Origins



The surname Harburger was first found in Silesia, where the family became noted for its many branches within the region, many houses acquiring a status and influence which rivaled that of the landed aristocracy. In their later history some branches were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they distinguished themselves through their contributions to the social, political, and economic developments of the nation. The name is composed of the Old High German words "heri," meaning "army" and "beorg," meaning "shelter." Therefore, it was probably originally given to someone who owned an inn or a farm and gave a place to stay to troops who were passing through.
