Zeissler History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



There are a few possible derivations for the Zeissler surname. In some instances, it may have evolved from the Middle High German word "zeisen" meaning "to pick," in which case it may have been an occupational name, or perhaps used figuratively as a nickname which later became a surname. Or, Zeissler may come from the Middle High German word "zeiz" meaning "graceful, tender or gentle."

Early Origins of the Zeissler family


The surname Zeissler was first found in Wuerttemberg, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. Chronicles first mention Konrad Zeisolf of Mannheim in 1307, Ebelin Zeizolf of the ancient imperial city of Worms in 1234, and there is a town in Wuerttemberg called Zeizolfswiler.
