Schendel History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Schendel was born in the beautiful region of Bohemia, which is now part of Czechoslavakia. In the Middle Ages, Bohemia was a part of the Holy Roman Empire, which was characterized by the Feudal System. Before this era, people were known only by a single name. However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Many people, such as the Schendel family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Schendel was an occupational name for a roofer. The name Schendel is derived from the Old German word "schindel," which means "shingle" or "small pebbles."
