Lemke Early Origins



The surname Lemke was first found in Wuerttemberg, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. Chronicles first mention Bertoldus dictus Lempe in 1290 in Esslingen, and Heinrich Lemppi of Freiburg in 1400. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs.
