Peelor Early Origins



The surname Peelor was first found in Silesia, where the name became noted for its many branches within the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into a most influential family. The name may originate from (or have lent itelf to) the town Bielau in Silesia and Bielen in Thuringia.
