Zedler Early Origins



The surname Zedler was first found in Bohemia, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of this region from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. Chronicles first mention Mitschke Zeitler of Bohemia in 1385, Maczke Czydeler of the Silesian city Liegnitz in 1387, Niclas Czedler of Glatz, Silesia, in 1403, and Pessko Czeydler of Glatz in 1418. In Old-German the name literally referred to the art and science of bee-keeping.
