KRUGER Family History

This is an ancient surname of international reputation and Germanic origins. Recorded in many spellings including Kroger, Kruger, Krug, Kroge, Krogmann, Krochmann, and Krugmann, it has two possible origins both occupational. The first is or rather was, in medieval times, a descriptive surname for a manufacturer or merchant of glass and pottery, and in particular mugs, pitchers and jugs. This is from the pre 7th century High German word "kruog". The second possible origin derives from the Middle German word "krug" meaning an inn or tavern, and hence describes an innkeeper. Occupational surnames were often the first to be used, but they usually only became hereditary when a son or perhaps a grandson of the founder, continued in the same trade or profession...
