The surname Trexler was first found in the region of Thuringia, where this particular variation first emerged. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Herman der Drahsil, who was living in Weingarten, a town just beyond the borders of Thuringia, in 1270. The Trexler family was an integral part of a feudal society which would shape modern European history, and played an important role in the development of German society.
