Schaub History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The roots of the distinguished German surname Schaub 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.
