The name Schubert was born in the beautiful region of Bohemia, which is now part of Czechoslavakia. In the Middle Ages, many of the Bohemian were a part of the Holy Roman Empire, which was characterized by the Feudal System. Before this era, people were known only by a single name. However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Many people, such as the Schubert family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Schubert was an occupational name for a cobbler. Ancient records reveal the name Schubert is derived from the Old German words "schuoch wurhte," and the German "schuowirt," which mean "shoemaker."

Schubert Early Origins



The surname Schubert was first found in Bohemia, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would shape the course of European history. Chronicles mention Waczlab Schubort in the town Dux in 1390, and Close Schubert in Glatz in 1415. They would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted 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: Diligenter et fideliter
Motto Translation: Diligently and faithfully.
