Bavaria, one of the oldest and largest of the German states, is the birthplace of the Spindler family. After the 12th century, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules. Names derived from occupations were particularly common in this region. Spindler is an occupational surname for maker or user of spindles which is derived from the German word "spindel" of the same meaning.

Migration of the Spindler family to the New World and Oceana


Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Spindler or a variant listed above:
