Where did the German Hall family come from? What is the German Hall family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hall family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hall family history?The distinguished German surname Hall is derived from the Old High German "halla," meaning "hall" or "manor." This name was probably originally borne either by someone who lived near a large house, or by someone who was employed at a hall or manor.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Hall, Halland, Hallandsfar, Hallay, Hallberg, Halle, Hallegg, Hallenaut, Haller, Hallermund, Hallersdorf, Hallerstein, Halletius, Halleux, Hallez, Hallmann and many more.
First found in Baden, where the family was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
