Scheibel Early Origins



The surname Scheibel was first found in northern Germany, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century on the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the five hundred-year process of developing the German nation. Chronicles first mention descendents of the northern German families who early on moved deep into the south. Listed are Hainrich "aus der Scheiben" of Tirol in 1369, Hensel Scheybel in 1379, and E. Schyblin of Wuerttemberg in 1450.

Scheibel Spelling Variations



Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Scheibel include Scheibler, Scheiber, Scheybe, Scheibe, Scheyber, Schiber and many more.

The Great Migration



The state of Prussia was a great influence on the shape of modern Germany. After the Second World War, Prussia's land was divided among the Soviet Union, Poland, East Germany and West Germany and the state was abolished. Some Prussians remained in those countries after the war, while many others migrated to North America in search of a new start. Philadelphia was their primary point of entry to the United States, after which many of them moved on to Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. A large number of Prussians also migrated to Ontario and the prairie provinces as United Empire Loyalists. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Scheibels to arrive in North America, and among them were:
