Kreutzer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Kreutzer surname has several possible origins. The "Kreitz" variation of this surname was inspired by the town of Kreitz, which lies near the city of Neuss in northwestern Germany. This type of surname generally arose when an individual moved from one settlement to another, and was then referred to by the name of his place of origin. "Kreitz" may also have been derived from the German word "kreuz," denoting a "cross." The first bearers of the surname might have worked a field or plot of land shaped like a cross, or lived near a prominent cross that served either as a religious symbol or as a boundary-marker (crosses were commonly used for this purpose in the medieval period). It is also thought that the surnames "Kreuz" and "Kreitz" may have come from a sobriquet referring to someone who had served under the banner of the Cross in a Crusade.


Early Origins of the Kreutzer family


The surname Kreutzer was first found in the region of the North Rhine- Westphalia, where members of the Kreutzer family were no doubt integral parts of the Feudal System that became the backbone of early European society.
