Klug Early Origins



The surname Klug was first found in Austria, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. Chronicles first mention Conrad Kluger of Prague in 1320, and Mertin Kluge of Habelschwerdt in 1397.
