Mikesch Surname History

The Mikesch surname name is from Austria and its royalty. 


My grandfather was born in Austria.  His last name is Mikesch here in America. He moved to Bronx, New York and had a family.  His name was Adolph Mikesch.  I have since learned from someone in Whitehouse, NJ that her maiden name was Mikesch.  Neither this lady nor my grandparents knew each other.  This woman told me that in Austria the name is spelled "Mikes" but pronounced as Mikesch.  So here in the US they ad the "ch" so people say the name correctly as "Mikesch".   The woman also said that the name "Mikes" or Mikesch is in the family of descendents of the royalty of Austria.  For this i can not validate but its a start for someone who can take this further.   The name has been around for at least 200 years or more, if we consider the lineage of royalty.  Interestingly, this woman whose maiden name was Mikesch had a husband who was  in one of the first Olympic games held and won a medal.  I believe it was for running. This is Joy Piper, descendent of Adolph and Francess Mikesch.
