Pries Early Origins



The surname Pries was first found in Prussia, where the name emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of the region Saxony. The name Preuss came from an ancient Baltic tribe of the name Prüsen, a tribe displaced by the German tribes in the 13th century. 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.
