Early Origins of the Volkert family


The surname Volkert 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.
