The German state of Bavaria is the ancestral home of the Reindl family. Reindl is a local name, first used as a surname for someone who lived in Bavaria, where they rose to prominence through their involvement in the social and cultural affairs of the area. The root form of this name is thought to be "Reindl" and "Reinl," which began as short forms for "Reinhard" or "Reinhold." There is a town called Rendel, in the Wetterau region of Hessen, to which the family may have lent its name, or from which the family name may come.

Reindl Early Origins



The surname Reindl was first found in Bavaria, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into many houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs. The root name for all variations is thought to be "Reindl" and "Reinl," which began as short forms for "Reinhard" or "Reinhold." Individual bearers of the name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Conrad Rendelere of Hessen, who lived around 1316.

The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Reindls to arrive in North America, and among them were:
