The roots of the German surname Troxell can be found in the region of Hesse, where the name originated. Troxell may be an occupational name, derived from the Middle High German word "truhsaesee," meaning "leader." In this case, Troxell would be a variation of the German surname Truchsess.

Troxell Early Origins



The surname Troxell was first found in Kempten, where the name first emerged in the early Middle Ages. Hainrich der Truhsaess is the first recorded bearer of the name, living in Kempten in 1287.
