I am researching the Kneissler families in Europe. If Kneissler is spoken the German and heard he American way, it sounds Knisley. I trace back to Thomas Kneissler in Prague about 1750.
The meaning of the word is anything like knot, nut, anything that is hard and rough.
Gnaeus Tarquinius was the 5th king of Ancient Rome. There are at least 5 other famous Romans with the name Gnaeus.
Knut is the nordic Version of that name.
Chnuz was a noble Alleman around 771.
Gneuss is a noble family from 1100 to 1600 in now Austria and Germany.
Knaus is a common name in Austria, Switzerland and southern Germany.
Can you tell me, who was the first Knisley of your branch and from where in Europe did he come?
