Riemer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Riemer family


The surname Riemer was first found in Austria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times.

The oldest form of the name is "Reinmar" or "Reginmar," which meant literally "famous councillor."
