Kenzler History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The distinguished German surname Kenzler is of two possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from the Middle High German "kanzelaere," meaning "a superior of an office or of a military orderly-room." Alternatively, it is derived from the Latin "cancellarius," meaning "chancellor."

Early Origins of the Kenzler family


The surname Kenzler was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have emerged; the earliest known documents of a variation of the name Kenzler date back to 1209, when Heinr. cognomento Cancellarius was recorded to be living in Worms, in the Rhineland region. The young Kenzler family played a major role in the history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval German society.
