The German surname Setters is an Upper German name with roots in the southern region of Bavaria. The name is derived from the German verb "setzen," meaning "to set," and was probably first borne by someone who worked at a market or fair, setting the prices of merchandise. The Low German variation of the name, Settegast, is even more specific, meaning "one who sets the price of barley."

Setters Early Origins



The surname Setters was first found in Regensburg; the first recorded bearer was Ortlieb der Setters, who lived there in 1290. The young Setters family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Bavarian society.
