Wassermann Early Origins



The surname Wassermann was first found in Silesia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made these territories a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. Chronicles first mention Heincze Wasserman of Liegnitz, Silesia in 1372, Procop Basserman (Wasserman) of Prague, Bohemia in 1377, and Heinel der Wasserman of Eger in Bohemia in 1396.
