Grimm Genealogy & History

Grimm has many spellings, including Grimar, Grimek, Grimme, and Grimbach. It stems from the eighth-century Norse Viking name Grimr, meaning the fierce one. Religious and political problems led some Grimms to move to America. The first known Grimm to settle in American were Elsie Jam Grimm and Otto Grimm, in 1664. Grimm family history is first recorded with Hugo Grim in the charters of the town of Ursberg, in Germany, in 1171. Noteworthy Grimm genealogy members are American farmer Wendelin Grimm, authors and linguists Jacob and Wihelm Grimm (the Brothers Grimm of fairy-tale fame), and slalom canoeist Alexander Grimm.
