The roots of the distinguished German surname Schabia lie in the former duchy of Swabia. The name is derived from the Middle High German word "schoup," meaning "bundle/wisp of straw." It is likely that the name was initially borne by a miller, or by someone who lived near a mill.

Schabia Early Origins



The surname Schabia was first found in Baden and Swabia, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. The first known bearer of the name was a knight named Schaub, who lived in Strasbourg in 1293.
