The ancestral home of the Tegeler family is in the German state of Bavaria. The name Tegeler is an occupational hereditary surname, a type of surname that was taken from a word describing or common to the profession of the original bearer. It is a name for a brick maker. The name Tegeler is derived from the German word "ziegelbrenner," which means "brick maker." Although this name is quite common in Germany, it is most frequently found in the south and south-west of Germany, which are regions that were occupied by the Romans and had a strong house building industry.

Tegeler Early Origins



The surname Tegeler was first found in Bavaria, where they were established in the Middle Ages. They became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some in the Bavarian cities of Noerdlingen, Nuremburg, and Munich, elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. Chronicles first mention Ulreich der Zigler of the city Eger on the border between Bohemia and Bavaria around the year 1340.

Others have phrases attached that identify something about the original bearer. Other variations in German names resulted from the fact that medieval scribes worked without the aid of any spelling rules. The spelling variations of the name Tegeler include Ziegler, Zieglauer, Zigler, Zeigler and many more.

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 Tegeler or a variant listed above:
