Thies History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Thies family

The surname Thies was first found in Germany, where the name Tasman came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.
