Kehrer Coat of Arms / Kehrer Family Crest

The name KEHRER was originally derived from the Germanic personal name Carl, meaning Man, which was Latinized as Carolus. The first hereditary surnames on German soil are found in the second half of the 12th century, slightly later than in England and France. However, it was not until the 16th century that they became stabilized. The practice of adopting hereditary surnames began in the southern areas of Germany, and gradually spread northwards during the Middle Ages. In France the name was popular at an early date, due to the fame of the Emperor Charlemagne (742-814). The Old form Charles was briefly introduced to England by the Normans, but was rare during the main period of surname formation. It was introduced more successfully to Scotland in the 16th century by the Stuarts, who had strong ties with France. The name was not in use among the general population in the Scandinavian speaking countries, and was restricted to the nobility. It has now spread widely and has many variant spellings which include KEHRL, KERL, KAROLYI, KARL and KEERL, to name but a few. CHARLES, Emperor of Austria (1916-1918) and King of Hungary (1916-19) was the last of the Habsburg emperors. He proclaimed himself as emperor of Austria as KARL I and king of Hungary as KAROLY IV.

The practice of adopting hereditary surnames began in the southern areas of Germany, and gradually spread northwards during the Middle Ages. The word Heraldry is derived from the German HEER, (a host, an army) and HELD, (champion): the term BLASON, by which the science is denoted in French, English, Italian and German, has most probably its origin in the German word 'BLAZEN' (to blow the horn). Whenever a new knight appeared at a Tournament, the herald sounded the trumpet, and as competitors attended with closed vizors, it was his duty to explain the bearing of the shield or coat-armour belonging to each. Thus, the knowledge of the various devices and symbols was called 'Heraldry'. The Germans transmitted the word to the French, and it reached England after the Norman Conquest of 1066.
