The name Tueringe, which is a local surname, reveals that the original bearer of the name once lived, held land, or was born in this beautiful region of Thuringia. In the Holy Roman Empire, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and, after the 12th century, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. In addition, when coupled with the German preposition von, which means from or of, local names can indicate that the bearer of the name was an aristocrat. However, in modern times, the von is frequently dropped from the surname. The Tueringe family originally lived in Thuringia, which located between Hessen and Lower Saxony in the west and Saxony in the east. This regional name refers to a person who originated in Thuringia and migrated to another German or European state.

Tueringe Early Origins



The surname Tueringe was first found in Thuringia, where the name could be considered to have made a major contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs as early as 760, when Albicus Torringer served the Duke of Bavaria. They branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile. This family is possibly the oldest and one of the most famous noble families of Bavaria.
