Heuer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The surname Heuer, comes from the German word "Heu" meaning "hay." The name is occupational in origin, especially so, when it serves as an element in a compound. Heumaier would refer to the officer who oversaw the delivery of the hay harvest. Heuwemenger is the equivalent of "Heuhändler" meaning hey merchant. The surname Heuer on its own would likely be applied to a hay farmer or cutter.
