Origin of last name Buchta, country of origin: Germany - Austria

Nobility: Nobles - Knights
Heraldic trace of family: Buchta
Nobility crown Buchta Ancient and Noble German family, with main residence in the land of Saxony but originally from Prussia, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries. The clear nobility of the house is confirmed by the presence of its blazon in the valuable work of J.B. 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. According to what has been handed down, this family, as a reward for valuable services rendered to Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor, was admitted to the "Briefadel" (lit. "letter of nobility"), the so-called new nobility as opposed to "Uradel", a term coined only in modern times, in reference to noble families whose ancestral lineage can be traced back to before the Middle Ages. Moreover, this family, in all ages,... To be continuedalways stood out, thanks 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: Barthel, landowner in Saxony, flourishing in 1489; Ludwing, doctor of law, flourishing in Leipzig, in 1515; Ernst, landowner in Saxony, flourishing in 1526; Friedrich, notary in Leipzig, flourishing in 1555; Wolfgang, militiaman by profession, flourishing in Saxony, in 1581; Hans Ludwig, military doctor, flourishing in Dresden, in 1604; Friedrich, doctor of law, flourishing in Leipzig, in 1618; Barth, landowner in Saxony, flourishing in 1651; Otto, notary, flourishing in Leipzig, in 1669; Sigmund, landowner in Saxony, flourishing in 1702; Adam, jurist, flourishing in Dresden in 1761. A branch of the family moved to Austria and obtained the knighthood on June, 4 1882. In the same country obtained nobility on July, 5 1882. Family names so old, without any doubt, honour not only the families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious persons.
