The roots of the distinguished surname Schober lie in the kingdom of Bavaria. The name is derived from the Old Germanic word "schober," a medieval term for a barn or a stretch of land. Thus, the name would have been originally borne by the owner of a "schober."

Schober Early Origins



The surname Schober was first found in the agricultural areas, where tracts of land (schobers) were rented out by ranchers. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Leutolt der Schober, who was living in the Bavarian town of Hohenstein in 1289. The young Schober family was instrumental in the development of early Bavarian society, playing an important role in the medieval history of the region.
