**The Springer name originated from Christoph Lewis I who was knighted and made Count Springer of Waldenberg, Silesia (in Austria), by Henry IV of Germany. He was born in 1091, died in 1120, and married Adelfunan in 1109. Three of his grandsons became the progenitors of three lines of Counts - Counts of Waldenberg, Counts of Weldenstein, and the Counts of Scharffeneck. The Scharffeneck branch of the family eventually became extinct while the other two branches eventually became very numerous. From Silesia some of them spread to Bohemia where some married among the peasants and whose descendants finally became serfs. Others in Bohemia preserved their nationality and became distinguished persons. Then they migrated in a northwesterly direction, leaving their trace through the districts of Potsdam, Frankfort, Berlin, Stettin, Stralsund, Mecklenburg, Hamburg, Lubecks, Lauenberg, Holstein, and Schleswig. From there they moved on to Denmark and Sweden. These migrations have been traced by a number of scholars. The branch that went to Sweden divided into three parts with one part coming to the New World (America). The branch that came to America is the branch that gave us some of our ancestors.** source "Jim Webb Kerrville, TX"
