Name Meaning

North German (Schröder): occupational name for a cloth cutter or tailor, from an agent derivative of Middle Low German schrōden, schrōden ‘to cut’. The same term was occasionally used to denote a gristmiller as well as a shoemaker, whose work included cutting leather, and also a drayman, one who delivered beer and wine in bulk to customers; in some instances the surname may have been acquired in either of these senses. This name is widespread throughout central and eastern Europe.
