Seiberlich History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The German state of Prussia, which reached the zenith of its power in the late 19th century, is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Seiberlich. In the medieval era, after the fall of the Roman Empire, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The borders of the Barbarian kingdoms changed frequently, but the region that became known in Prussia was roughly divided between the areas of Brandenburg-Prussia, West Prussia, and East Prussia. The colorful history of Brandenburg-Prussia, which is essentially the birthplace of modern Germany, provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Seiberlich family.

Early Origins of the Seiberlich family


The surname Seiberlich was first found in the northern regions, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the area. Chronicles trace the name back to Sybrecht in the early Middle Ages, when it was also found in its Latin form Sybertus. Both forms appear in Breslau chronicles of 1320. Another possible origin is "Sigbert." From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory an important contributor to the development of the nation.

Migration of the Seiberlich family to the New World and Oceana


The state of Prussia was a great influence on the shape of modern Germany. After the Second World War, Prussia's land was divided among the Soviet Union, Poland, East Germany and West Germany and the state was abolished. Some Prussians remained in those countries after the war, while many others migrated to North America in search of a new start. Philadelphia was their primary point of entry to the United States, after which many of them moved on to Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. A large number of Prussians also migrated to Ontario and the prairie provinces as United Empire Loyalists. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Seiberlichs to arrive in North America, and among them were:
