*THE SOURCH: The Name of TISCHBEIN! - Where did the Name appear?

Tone Marie Tischbein spent the time from August 2003 to August 2004 in Australia.
In Cairns, Quensland, she keep in touch with a genalogist who gave the following informations about the Family Tischbein:

The ancient Arms of TISCHBEIN:
Our research has traced the name Tischbein to the agricultural and industrial province of Silesia (In German: Schlesien). The name of this territory probably has its origins in the name "Silinger", a Germanic tribe associated with the Vandals, who settled here between the 2nd and the 6th centuries before moving south during the major period of tribal migration. The Slavic tribe of the Slezanen later occupied the area and joined the Polians to form the first Polish state, of which Silesia become a part of the 11th century. In 1163, after a struggle of successions, The Holy Roman Emperor Fredrick Barbarossa intervened and installed two Piast princes as dukes of Upper and Lower Silesia respectively.
Silesia was then independent, and following the policy of the Royal and Masovian branches, immigration by German craftsmen and settlers was encouraged. The Piasts were allies of the Empire. and German knights under the Duke of Liegnitz (Lower Silesia) fought against the Tatars in 1241. In 1335, Silesia was attached to Bohemia, which was then part of the Empire.
In the mediaeval period bearers of the surname Tischbein were found in Silesia, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. Chronicles first mention Nicolaus Tischer of Liegnitz, Silesia, in 1372, and Hensl Tischer of Iglau, Bohemia, in 1359.
The spelling and pronunciation of a name constantly changes through the centuries, as the name evolves as part of standard usage in many different rgions. During the Middle Ages, very few people could read and write; it was therefore up to the scribes to write down the name for various documents, based only how the name sounded. Since dialects were different between even the smallest regions, variations were frequent. The variations of the name Tischbein include Tischer, Tischle, Tischler, Tisler, Tisle, Tishler, Tishle, Tisher, Tischel, Tishel, Tischner to name a few examples.
By the end of the 14th centuy, the planned emigration was producing the hoped-for prosperity; swamplands were reclaimed, the weaving industry developed, and Breslau, reestablished in 1250 as a German city, became a trading center between East and West. The dukes of Silesia eventually exchanged their allegiance to Poland for that of their neighbor Bohemia, and as the Piast dynasty died out, their lands became crown properties of Bohemia.
Up to the 1500 Silesia was a dependency of Behemia, and as such, eventually came under the control of the house of Habsburg in 1526, who were rulers of the Holy Roman Empires. Silesia, mainly Prostetant fought as an ally of Bohemia in the brutal Thirty Years War. The land was overrun with invading armies and mercenaries, and almost three quarters of the population lost their lives. Silesia did slowly recover from the destruction, and with the support of Charles VI, trade with Austria developed.
During this period of change and development, bearers of the surname Tischbein settled in the region of Meissen and the city of Nuremberg, where they became more enthrenched as one of the notable family names in the region. They established several branch houses of the name and some were not confined to the region. They moved within the great flux of migration in 16th and 17th century Europe. Many migrated to capitaøize on their interests in either religious, military or political service. They were also elevated to the ranks of the nobility during this period and possessed their coat of arms since 1577. Prominent among those with the family name Tischbein during this early period were Hensl Tischer of Iglau (around 1359), who was the oldest recorded member of this family.
In the 18th century,Fredrick the Great of Prussia fought three wars against Empress Maria Theresa in order to wrest Silesia from Austrian dominance. Despite Austria's determined resistance, the Prussian army defeated the Austrians in 1762. After the Prussian defeat of the Russians and the Austrians, Silesia entered a stage of major development as more settlers were encouraged to rebuild the davasted countryside. Silesia developed into an industrial base, supplying raw materials for the expanding Prussian Empire. Its major cities include Breslau, site of a famous university and an uprising against Napoleon in 1813, and Liegnitz, a ducal seat and site of a Baroque castle.
After the defeat of Germany in the Great war, the Treaty of Versailles provided for the re-creation of the Polish state. Following a vote by the mixed Polish and German people, the League of Nations attempted a compromise by granting part of Upper Silesia to Poland. In 1939, all of Upper Silesia was reclaimed by Germany. Following the defeat of the Axis powers in 1945, Silesia was returned to Polish control. Approximately three million Germans were deported and forced to migrate to their homeland withour compensation, a political issue that has yet to be settled to the satisfaction of the respective Polish and Germans goverments.
After 1650, many Germans emigrated from their homeland in order to seek a better life in the New York. In the United States, they settled in groups in the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, California, Illinois, and Texas, while in Canada German settlements were in the regions of Ontario and the Prarie provinces. Among the immigrants bearing the name Tischbein, we found Johann Christian Tischer, who camen to Philadelphia in 1764, and Heinrich Tischler, who came to Texas with his wife and two children in 1857.
In the modern period, bearers of the surname Tischbein achieved prominence, such as Max Tischler (b.1906), who was an American organic and medicinal chemist, the President of the Merck & Co. Research Labs, member of numerous advisory councils and chemistry societies, and winner of many awards the National Medal of Science in 1987.
