Schmucker Early Origins



The surname Schmucker was first found in Pommerania, where the name Schmucker contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. Over time, the Schmucker family name branched into other houses, where their influence continued to be felt because of the important role they played in the local social and political affairs. The name Schmucker is roughly equivalent to the English name "Small," probably having been given to someone who was short in stature.
