Sievert Early Origins



The surname Sievert was first found in northern Germany, in particular Hamburg and Pomerania, where the name gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society in this region. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches in the eastern Baltic, elevating their social status by their great contributions to society through the military and civil services.
