Knepp Early Origins



The surname Knepp was first found in Belgium and Luxemburg, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Luxemburg, a Grand Duchy of Erope and a province of Belgium. The House of Luxemburg is descended from Count Conrad who died 1086. Towns of the area include Viesalm, Herbeumont, Bertrix, Marche and Bastogne. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into a most influential family.
