Origin of last name Elbing, country of origin: Germany

Nobility: Nobles
Heraldrys of family: Elbing
Nobility crown Elbing Ancient and very noble family of Bavaria, one of the sixteen federal states of Germany, of clear and ancestral virtue, known as Elbing or Elbing of Unterschönfelt, which has spread, over the centuries, in different regions of Europe. The clear nobility of the house is confirmed by the presence of its blazon in the valuable work of JB Rietstap (12 May 1828–24 December 1891), a dutch heraldist and genealogist, "The Armorial General", a monumental work that contains the blazons of the coats of arms of more than 130,000 European families. Moreover, this family, in all ages, always stands out, thanks... To be continued

to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in the liberal professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Karl, Bavarian land-owner, flourishing in 1502; Feodor, lawyer, flourishing in Nuremberg, in 1524; Barthel, Bavarian land-owner, flourishing in 1542; Dagobert, advisor in Monaco, flourishing in 1582; Hans, soldier by profession, flourishing in 1604; Lucas, doctor of law, flourishing in Nuremberg, in 1623; Karl Hans, lawyer, flourishing in Augusta, in 1672; Ludwig, landowner and lover of literature, flourishing in 1702; Igor, a skilled soldier to the services of Charles VI. From the analysis of colors and elements of the coat of arms we can have some information on the family virtues. Red ("gules") is the symbol of strength, power but also fervent love for God and neighbor; the tincture azure symbolizes water, the continuity of life, it is a color of nobility, beauty, chastity and fidelity; the unicorn symbolizes strength and generous victory; the arm in armour is a symbol of high military rank. Family names so old, without any doubt honour not only families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy the living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious members.
