see message for Name Origin posted on 7-28-00.
Want to add to that an article I found among "my stuff". The earliest Clevenger recorded went with William the Conqueror(1027-1087) across the english channel . Clevenger's show in Wales Ireland in the early 1400's. The name Clevenger is derived from the occupation,Clavis, Key and Gerer-to-bear-Key Bearer, would correspond with today a treasurer. They have a Coat of Arms red, blue, gold green. In America, the earliest Clevenger was John who was in New York about 1695.
Hope this information helps. Please respond. We just recently got our computer and we are really excited to look up family history. We live in North Carolina....where are you?

Where did you find this info. I'm very interested. I had a note saying that the Clevengers were "Holders of the Weapons", so any clarification on this would be much appreciated.

John Clevenger, b. 1633 in England, is as far back as anyone has traced the Clevengers in the U.S., last I heard. Please let me know whether anyone has successfully traced back further in England. Thanks.

The surname Klevenz (Klefenz) can be found in the villages of Rauenberg, Malsch and Sankt Leon. These towns are in Baden between Heidelberg and Karlsruhe. Prior to Napoleon they were in the Bishopric of Speyer and thus the residents were mostly Catholic.
Try the Geogen web site for German surnme ditributions.
