The roots of the distinguished German surname Monsche lie in the region of the Rhineland. The name is derived from the Low German words "Münk" or "Mönk," meaning "monk." Monsche was probably first used as a surname by a former member of a monastery, who passed the name down to his descendants.

Monsche Early Origins



The surname Monsche was first found in the Rhineland, where this family was a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always influential in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it forged alliances with other families within the region and the nation. The first known bearer of the name was the farmer Albrecht Münch, who lived at the southern edge of the Rhineland in 1204.
