laubach History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The German surname laubach emerged in the lands that form the modern state of Lower Saxony, which is presently bordered by the North Sea, the Hartz mountains and the Elbe and Ems rivers. Lower Saxony was previously a medieval dukedom. In the Middle Ages, many of the Saxon lands were a part of the Holy Roman Empire, which was characterized by the Feudal System. Before this era, people were known only by a single name. However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Many people, such as the laubach family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname laubach was an occupational name for a baker. The root of this distinguished surname is the word laib, which in the Middle Ages referred to a baker.
Early Origins of the laubach family
The surname laubach was first found in Brunswick, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. Chronicles first mention Hans Laybel in Nickolsberg in 1414, and Peter Loeublin of Reutlingen in 1390.
