Hess Genealogy & History

Hess is a German name, dating back before the tenth century. One derivation is locational, referring to the German state of Hesse; a second is descriptive/occupational, referring to people who wore or made hoods. Hess literally translates to "hooded people" and could refer to soldiers wearing helmets. As with most ancient names, there are many German, Austrian, Dutch, and Danish variations in Hess genealogy: Esse, Hesler, Hessel, Hesselin, Hessing, Hesso, and Hessung. The coat of arms is a sun on a blue shield, symbolizing glory and loyalty. Hess family history includes two Nobel prize winners. In America, the first Hess immigrant arrived in New York in 1709.
