Where did the German Mattle family come from? What is the German Mattle family crest and coat of arms? When did the Mattle family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Mattle family history?

The name Mattle stems from two sources which were continually mixed up throughout the Middle Ages, so they can no longer be differentiated: one was Matthaeus the Evangelist, who was patron saint of tax collectors, and the other was Mattias ( Hebrew for "gift of the gods"), who was one of the twelve Apostles.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Matt, Matte, Mattlin, Matter, Mattler, Mattner, Mattmann and many more.

First found in Prussia, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in local social and political affairs.
