Where did the German Weingart family come from? What is the German Weingart family crest and coat of arms? When did the Weingart family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Weingart family history?


Spelling variations of this family name include: Weingard, Weingart, Weingardt, Weingarden, Weingarten, Weingartz, Wingert, Weingartner and many more.

First found in Austria, where the name Weingart 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. In their later history, bearers of the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. The origin of the name Weingart is somewhat uncertain. It most likely comes from the German words "wein," meaning "wine" and "garten," meaning "enclosure," therefore referring to a vineyard, but it is impossible to know whether the name was given to its first bearer because he worked at a vineyard, owned one, or merely lived near one.
