Origin of last name Schattschneider, country of origin: GermanyNobility: Nobles
in the public service, in the liberal professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Hermann, landowner in Lower Saxony, flourishing in 1503; Alricus, doctor of law, flourishing in Hamburg, in 1522; Barth, doctor of law, flourishing in Hamburg, in 1546; Friedrich, military doctor, flourishing in Hamburg, in 1574; Ludwig, jurist, flourishing in Lower Saxony, in 1588; Karl Gerard, captain of arms, flourishing in 1602; Wolfgang, landowner in Lower Saxony, flourishing in 1636; Hermann, jurist, flourishing in Hamburg, in 1659; Alexander, canon and apostolic commissioner, flourishing in 1688. from the analysis of colours and symbols of the coat of arms we can have more information about the family virtues. The metal silver (argent) symbolizes purity, tenderness, temperance, mercy, kindness, the desire to win and the talent of eloquence; the pall is an heraldic ordinary, a Y-shaped form joining the points of the shield with its center. A pall on a shield may indicate a connection with the clergy, particularly archbishoprics. The tincture red (gules) is symbol of strength, power, fervent love for God and neighbour. 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.
