Wimmers Early Origins



The surname Wimmers 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.
