Uecker Early Origins



The surname Uecker was first found in Pomerania, where this aristocratic name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. Their ancestral seat and estates in this region can be traced back to 1500. From the 13th century on the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. The family rose to prominence on the banks of the river Uecker, the major river flowing through the territory Uckermark.
