The surname Woehlwerth was first found in Swabia and Franconia, where the name appeared as early as the year 1136. Chronicles mention the brothers Eberhard and Otto von Wellenwarte members of a dynasty already long standing in the region. The ancestral castle lay in the Woernitz valley near Homburg, and the founder of the modern lines of the family is usually taken to be Georg I von Woellwarth (1366-1409). The older son of Georg founded the Fachsenfelder line, while the younger son founded the main branch known as the Lauterberger line. They contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into even more houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Woellwarth (Hamburg), Woellwerth, Wollwerth, Woellwurth, Wellenwerte, Wellenwerth, Wollenwerth, Wollenwarth, Wohlwerth, Wohlenwerth, Wohlert, Woehlwerth, Woehlert and many more.
