The roots of the distinguished German surname Stegman lie in the former duchy of Swabia, where the name is believed to have first emerged. The name is derived from the Old High German word "steg," meaning "footpath" or "footbridge." It is likely that the name was originally borne by someone living near a narrow pathway or a small bridge.

Stegman Early Origins



The surname Stegman was first found in the duchy of Swabia, where it is believed to have first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Walther Stagemann, who was living in the village of Gollsdorf in 1280. The young Stegman family played an important role during this period, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
