The ancestral home of the ancestors of the Strobel surname is the German province of Bavaria. The Strobel surname is derived from the Old High German "strub, " equivalent to the Latin "strobilus," meaning "unkempt." As such, it was probably originally a nickname for someone who appeared scruffy-haired. Nickname surnames came from eke-names, or added names, that described their initial bearer through reference to a physical characteristic or other attribute. There are also instances of this surname that are habitational; that is, they derive any of the several places named Ströbel.

Strobel Early Origins



The surname Strobel was first found in Bavaria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became a vital part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Strobel or a variant listed above:
