Zinn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Zinn family

The surname Zinn was first found in Bohemia, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society which played a major role in the early development of Europe. The name became important in local affairs and branched into many houses which played a prominent part in the savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking political status in an unstable territorial profile. Chronicles first mention Bertold Cinner of Eger in Bohemia around 1275.
