Weichardt Early Origins



The surname Weichardt was first found in the county of Meissen in Saxony, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. Early bearers of this name mentioned in ancient chronicles are Wichel von Haselstein of Saxony in 1119, Nicolaus Weycher of Freystadt in 1414, P. Wyker of Liegnitz in Silesia in 1418, A. Weicker of Liegnitz in 1453, M. Weickardt of Liegnitz in 1547, and C. Weickert of Bunzlau in Silesia in 1577.
