Rodebaugh History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The roots of the distinguished German surname Rodebaugh lie in the northern province of Schleswig-Holstein. The name is derived from "Rodenbach," the name of several places in Germany, which is itself derived from the Old High German "roden," meaning "to clear," and "bach," meaning "stream." It is likely that the progenitor of the surname was a native of the town of Rodenbach who had moved to another city and was therefore referred to as "Rodebaugh."

Early Origins of the Rodebaugh family


The surname Rodebaugh was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the name was most common, particularly in the city of Hamburg. The earliest known bearer of the name was Herman Rodenbeke, who was a resident of the city of Greifswald in 1330. The young Rodebaugh family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of the medieval society of Schleswig-Holstein.
