Scheirer Early Origins



The surname Scheirer 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.
