The Schild surname comes from the Middle High German/Middle Dutch word "schilt," meaning "shield," and it is supposed that the name was originally an occupational name for a maker or painter of shields.

Early Origins of the Schild family


The surname Schild was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in South Holland, a province of Holland, the most crowded province of the Netherlands. The principal cities are Rotterdam, Leyden and Shiedam. Noted is the famed castle of Teilengen where Jacqueline of Bavaria is buried. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
