Schumann History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The origin of the proud surname Schumann can be traced to the historic kingdom of Bohemia, which is now part of Czechoslovakia. 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 Schumann 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 Schumann was an occupational name for a cobbler. The name Schumann is derived from the Old German words "schuoch" and the suffix "mann," which means shoe maker.
