The surname Vandenburg comes from the Middle Dutch word "burch," or "burg," meaning a fortified town. The prefixes "Van" and "den" mean "from" and "the" respectively. Thus this surname means "from the hill". As such, it may have been topographic name for someone who lived by a citadel or walled city; or, it may have been a habitational name, taken on from a place name, such as Burch in South Holland or Burcht in Antwerp province, Belgium.

Vandenburg Early Origins



The surname Vandenburg was first found in Holland, in Utrecht, a city and capital of the province of Utrecht. One old family-branch descends from the counts of Bergh, beginning with Constantius de Monte in the 12th century. There was a separate line of counts Van den Berghs in the 16th century.
