According to copyrighted information posted by Swyrich Corporation, the Seng name hails from 12th century Bavaria, and is an occupational name referring to a singer. The info is pretty general, but can be found at http://www.houseofnames.com/xq/asp.fc/qx/seng-family-crest.htm#products
On the other hand, Thomas Ridgeway Allen posts in another message in this forum that the name stems from a Chinese lineage, wherein traders from the east established themselves in the Wetschesapel area probably sometime in the 13th or 14th century. See "Re: Origin of Seng family name - Thomas Ridgway Allen 2/10/03" for the full story.
Personally, I'm not sure I'm ready to buy in to the Chinese connection just yet, as intriguing as the story may be. Check out the references and you decide for yourself.
