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

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.

First found in the farmlands of Westphalia, where it is believed that the name first emerged.
