Where did these family last names come from? Countrywise?
- MaxiLv 79 years agoFavorite Answer
These surnames mainly originated from Prussia ( so today's Germany and Hungary etc) and the British Isles....................... however that doesn't mean that is where the people who used those surnames came from....so you would need to research your ancestry to find out about the peoples origins.............

Here's what I know
Schoen: Could be German, Dutch, or Jewish
Page: Most likely Ireland, as it's been established there since the 1600's
Magee: Scottish or Irish
- Joyce BLv 79 years ago
Magees came from England, Ireland, Germany and Canada. Statlers came from Germany, Austria, England, Hungary, Holland, Ireland and France. Pages came from England, Ireland and France. Many Hahs lived in Missouri and the name could be a variant of Haws or Haas.
If you are trying to trace your ancestors, you will have to do the research. Just looking where a name may come from will not tell you where your great great grandparents came from.Source(s): ancestry.com

"Patronymic" is a $14 word that means "from the father", like "Williamson", "Williams" and "Wilson", which all mean "son of William."
