Niehaus History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The roots of the Niehaus family lie in the German duchy of Westphalia. The surname Niehaus is derived from two words, "nie," a Low German word meaning "new," and "haus," the standard German word for "house." Thus, the name may have been originally given to someone who owned his own house as opposed to being a tenant, or to someone who was connected with a new or important building in the settlement.
Early Origins of the Niehaus family
The surname Niehaus was first found in the farmlands of Westphalia, where it is believed that the name first emerged. There are no reliable written records from this earliest period of the surname's history that show the original bearers, but it is likely that the name was first given to a prominent householder residing in this region.
