Vendel History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The roots of the distinguished German surname Vendel lie in the former duchy of Swabia. The name is derived from the personal names "Wand," "Wend," and "Wendel," which are themselves all derived from the Old High German verb "wandern," meaning "to wander." The original bearer of the surname was most likely the son of one named Wendel.

Early Origins of the Vendel family


The surname Vendel was first found in the duchy of Swabia, where it most likely first emerged. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Hans Wenderl, who was a resident of the town of Weilheim in 1466. The young Vendel family was instrumental in the development of medieval Swabian society, and quickly became one of the prominent families of the region.
