Rexrode History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The ancestral home of the ancient Rexrode family lies in the very heart of Central Germany, in the region of Thuringia. The name Rexrode is derived from "Rexerode," the name of a now-abandoned city in Thuringia. "Rexrode" is made up of two elements: the Latin "rex," meaning "king," and the Lower German "rod," meaning "marshland."

Early Origins of the Rexrode family

The surname Rexrode was first found in Thuringia, where the ancient city of Rexerode was located. It is likely that the progenitor of the surname was a native of Rexerode who had moved to another city, and was thus referred to by the name of his hometown. The young Rexrode family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Thuringian society.
