Kroetch Surname History
The surname Kroetch is derived from the original German spelling of the surname KROTSCH. The name is often spelled Kroetsch or Krutch by various family members. The name comes from the region of Bavaria. The name can be found in Radelsdorf as far back as 1690 with the baptism of a Johann Peter Krotsch (umlaut 'o'). With the immigration of Martin Krotsch and his wife Kunigunda Regel, the surname spread throughout Eastern Canada and into the United States. All people with the variations of the surname (Kroetch, Kroetsch, Krutch) are related by this immigrating ancestor.
The Krotsch (also spelled Kroetch, Krutch, Crutch, Kroetsch) family can be traced back to Bavaria, Germany. One branch of the family (Martin and Kunigunda Krotsch) emigrated to Canada (via the United States of America) in the 1840's. We don't know the meaning or origin of the name Krotsch/Kroetch prior to the 1700's. Perhaps German relatives know more and can help by adding information here!
