Kumpf History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The Kumpf name is derived from the Middle High German word "kampf," meaning "fight;" thus it may have originally been an occupational name for a successful fighter; or perhaps a nickname for someone known to lose his temper.
Early Origins of the Kumpf family
The surname Kumpf was first found in Swabia, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into many houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs. Individual bearers of the name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Friczsche Kempf of Eger, Bohemia (c.1392,) and Jacob Kempf of Strassburg (c.1295).
