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

The old German family name Neubauer is derived from several possible sources, and no doubt different families of this name emerged independently during the era in which surnames first began to be used. The Low German word 'nabur' meant "neighbor," and then came to be used as a surname. There was also a place named Nabern near Kustrin, a river so named in Wurtemburg, as well as a St. Nabor in the Alsace region.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Niebuhr, Niebur, Niebauer, Naber, Nabur, Nabor, Nabermann, Neibaur, Neibauer, Neibuhr, Neibur, Nieburg and many more.

First found in Prussia, where the name emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
