Heraldic trace of family: Wurlitzer Ancient and noble German family, of clear and ancestral virtue, with main residence in Bavaria, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries, with a strong presence in Brazil, from the first half of the tenth ninth century. According to tradition, 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. Besides, this family, in all ages, always 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: Barth, landowner in Bavaria, flourishing in 1503; Karl, doctor of law, flourishing Erlbach,... To be continuedin 1524; Heinrich, landowner in Bavaria, flourishing in 1549; Johann, Pastor of souls Erlbach, flourishing 1620; Friedrich, military doctor, flourishing in 1649; Wolfgang Friedrich, jurist in Hamburg, flourishing in 1672; Ernst, militiaman by profession, flourishing in Erlbach, in 1683; Hans Klaus, doctor of law, flourishing in Hamburg, in 1703; Friedrich, cavalry general, under the banners of Charles VI. From the analysis of colours and symbols of the coat of arms we can have more information about the family virtues. The tincture azure symbolizes water, the continuity of life, it is a colour of nobility, beauty, chastity and fidelity; the arm in armour means high military rank; the abre (saber) is synonymous with warrior race. 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.
