An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Seyler surname is derived from the German word "seil," meaning "rope," and as such it is thought to have originally been an occupational name for a maker of rope.

Seyler Early Origins



The surname Seyler was first found in Switzerland, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. The name emerged in Bale and in Schaffhausen in Switzerland where they became prominent families.
