Kuhnert Early Origins



The surname Kuhnert was first found in Schleswig, where the family was anciently associated with the political and religious conflicts of the area. The name was most likely formed from Kunrat, the popular first name of a number of medieval German Kaisers. Individual bearers of this name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Hans Kunat of Goerlitz (c.1417,) and P. Kunet of Liegnitz (c.1491).
