The ancestral home of the Schryver family is in the German state of Bavaria. The name Schryver is an occupational hereditary surname, a type of surname that was taken from a word describing or common to the profession of the original bearer. It is a name for a clerk. The name Schryver is derived from the German word "schreiben," which means "to write" and was itself derived from the German word "schriben", and the Old German word "scriban." The Latin word "scribere" also means to write and could be a root word of this distinguished surname.

Schryver Early Origins



The surname Schryver was first found in northern Germany, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later be associated with noble families of great influence, having many distinguished branches, and becoming noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.

Schryver Spelling Variations



Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Schryver include Schreyber, Schreybers, Schreibers, Shriber, Shreyber and many more.

The Great Migration



After 1650, thousands of German settlers came to North America to escape the religious persecution and poverty that wracked Europe and to make the most of the opportunity to own their own land in a new country. They settled across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, and in Canada in Ontario and on the fertile plains of the prairie provinces. Among them:
