Where did the German Teschke family come from? What is the German Teschke family crest and coat of arms? When did the Teschke family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Teschke family history?

The German surname Teschke is believed by etymologists to have formed independent from various sources. In some instances, the surname was of toponymic origin, from the place named Teschen in Schlesien and East Prussia. The surname was likely also derived from the German word "tasche," meaning "an overhang, angle and corner," and would have been originally born by someone living near such a geographic feature. Alternatively, Teschke was of occupational origin, from the German word "tasche" meaning "purse," and thus referring to a maker of purses. There was also a Slavic personal name Tesmar, which may have given rise to Teschke as a patronymic name.
