Jurken History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The distinguished surname Jurken is of German origin, meaning "son of George." The name is derived from the Greek "ge ergon," literally meaning "tiller of the soil" or "farmer." Jurken was used as a first name throughout Europe during the Middle Ages due to the legendary dragon-slaying fame of St. George, and eventually came into use as a surname around the 12th century.

Early Origins of the Jurken family


The surname Jurken was first found in various regions of Germany; it is likely that several branches of the family emerged independently when hereditary surnames came into common use. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Everhardus filius Georgi, who was a resident of Hamburg in 1256. Every branch of the young Jurken family was instrumental during this early period, each playing a major role in the development of the society of its particular region.
