Koegel Early Origins



The surname Koegel was first found in Pomerania, where the family gained a significant reputation for its contributions to the emerging mediaeval society. The name became prominent as many branches of the family founded separate houses and acquired estates in various regions, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. Individual bearers of the name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Alvericus Keghel of Hamburg (c.1293,) and Eler der Kegheler of Bremen (c.1405).
