The distinguished surname Schroyer emerged in the former German province of East Prussia. The name is derived from the Low German verb "schroden," meaning "cut" or "chop," and was most likely originally borne by a wood-cutter, a tailor, or a transporter of beer and wine (known in North Germany as a Shröder).

Schroyer Early Origins



The surname Schroyer was first found in the northeastern regions of Germany, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would have prominent effects on the development of European history. The name would later be linked to noble families of great influence, having many distinguished branches, and becoming renowned for their involvement in social, economic and political affairs.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Allein beim Christus den ewigen freiheit
Motto Translation: Christ alone for eternal freedom
