Bavaria, one of the oldest and largest of the German states, is the birthplace of the Schreglin family. After the 12th century, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules. Names derived from occupations were particularly common in this region. Schreglin is an occupational surname for person who was associated with the building of cross-legged stands and tables. In its medieval context, the word "schrage" literally meant "crooked" or "crossed," and it may have been given to those whose profession it was to make and sell tables and stands of this description.

Schreglin Early Origins



The surname Schreglin was first found in Bavaria, where the family rose to prominence early in the mediaeval era. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. Individual bearers of this name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Egelolf Schrage of Wuerttemberg (c.1273,) Marquard Schrage of Luebeck (c.1347,) and one "Schraeglin" of Esslingen (c.1359).

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Schreglin or a variant listed above: Johan Schrage, who settled in Germantown, Pennsylvania in 1693 and Johannes Schrag, who came to Pennsylvania in 1766. A large group of interrelated Swiss Mennonite families, including Andreas, Froni, Franz, and Jacob Schrag came from Russia to the port of New York in 1874. Andreas Schrager emigrated to England and then possibly America in 1709.
