Hugo Early Origins



The surname Hugo was first found in Basel, (or Bale) a city in present day Switzerland on the Rhine river; it was a Gaelic stronghold and later a Roman town. It was in this region that the name Hugo made a great contribution to the feudal society of early Europe. The name Hugo became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile. The family has a long line of knights to their credit including: Hugo de Spitzemberg a noted Baron in 1537, Hugo zu Seelze from Hambourg who was confirmed as a Knight of St-Empire on Dec 29th, 1732; and Hugo de Raveshot of Flanders.
