Knauer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The roots of the distinguished German surname Knauer lie in the province of Silesia. The name is of several different possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from "Knau," the name of a city located in Thuringia; in this instance, it is likely that the name was originally borne by a native of Knau who had moved to another city. Alternatively, the name is derived from the Middle High German word "knur," which was used to denote a "rude person;" in this case, the name would most likely have been bestowed on a farmhand or laborer as a nickname by a city person.

Early Origins of the Knauer family


The surname Knauer was first found in the regions of Bavaria, Saxony, and Silesia. The first known instance of the name was recorded in Bavaria, where one called Knur was living in 1138. The young Knauer family was instrumental in the development of medieval German society, and played an important role in the history of the region.
