Multiple Origins for the Surname Peltzer


German


The roots of the distinguished German surname Peltzer lie in the kingdom of Bavaria. The name is derived from the Middle High German "Peltzer," meaning "furrier." During the Middle Ages, it was common practice for a man to be identified by the kind of work that he did; thus, it is likely that the progenitor of the name was a furrier who eventually came to be known as "Peltzer" or "Peltzer."

Peltzer Early Origins



The surname Peltzer was first found in the medieval Duchy of Franconia, where the name is thought to have originated. The first known bearer of the name was recorded simply as Belz, and lived in Franconia in 1293. The young Peltzer family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Bavarian society.
