Wenzel Genealogy & History

Wenzel is the germanization of the Czech name Vaclav. This itself came from two elements, vece (greater) and slav (glory), and the name was borne by a tenth-century Duke Wenceslas who fought a revival of paganism in Bohemia. Wenzel family history records many variants of the name including Wensel, Wenzel, Wentsel, Wentzel, Wensell, Ventzke, Ventske, Venceke, and Ventzel. The first recorded spelling of the family name was John Wenzell, dated April 27, 1766, St. Dunstan's, Stepney, London. Adolph Wensel, aged 36, settled in Philadelphia in 1736. Among members of the Wenzel genealogy are American cycling coach Rene Wenzel and Australian character actor Brian Wenzel.
