The surname Wimer was first found in Austria
, where the name could be considered to have made a great early contribution to the feudal
society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name became prominent in local
affairs, particularly in Vienna
, and branched into many houses, playing important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, as rival groups sought power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.
