Vester History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Dutch, German


Early Origins of the Vester family


The surname Vester was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Limburg, the smallest, southernmost province of the Netherlands. The capital of the province is Mastricht, noted for its contribution to the modern treaty for the E.E.C. Other notable towns are Crefeld and Breda and Nijmwegan. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. Originally the name was Weesper but by the 15th century had emerged as Vesper and Vest. The family name does not have religious connotations.
