The ancient German region of the Rhineland was the original home of the ancestors of the Schuett surname. Schuett was a local name, a type of hereditary surname that identified people by the places where they lived. Landowners were the first to use local names, and they often attached the prefix "von", meaning "of" or "from," to the surname. Often, the use of "von" was a mark of aristocratic birth. Local names are by far the most common style of German hereditary surname. Schuett was a name for someone who lived in the region of Schuetz in various areas of Germany.

Schuett Early Origins



The surname Schuett was first found in the Rhineland valley, where this old family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Numerous family members bearing this name were prominent in social affairs. The family, as it spread throughout Germany, played a fundamental role in many regions as they emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System. Chronicles first mention Johann Scuette of Luebeck in 1319 and Woelfel Schuetze of Eger in 1320.

The Great Migration



Hundreds of thousands of Europeans, including many Rhinelanders, made the voyage to North America between the 17th and 20th centuries. It was an escape from religious persecution and poverty and also an opportunity for people to start over and own their own land. Most landed at Ellis Island, off New York before moving on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, and California. Some also landed in Canada and settled in Ontario, while others headed west to the prairie provinces. A study of passenger and immigration lists has shown a number of people bearing the name of Schuett, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early:
