Schumacher Family History

Recorded as Schaumann, Schaumaker, Schomaker Schumacher, Schuemacher, Schomacher (German), and Shoe, Shoemake, Shoemaker, Schoemaker (English), this is a surname of pre 7th century origins. It derives from the Anglo-Saxon (German) word "schuh" and the Olde English "scoh" meaning shoe and however spelt is job-descriptive for a shoe maker. These early surnames whilst denoting the actual occupation of the namebearer, only became hereditary when a son or grandson followed the original nameholder into the same line of business or skill.
