Janda Early Origins



The surname Janda was first found in Silesia in East Prussia, where the name Jindra 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 branched to Czechoslovakia.
