Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : The Last Name of GESSNER was a locational name of German origin, one who lived on the avenue. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. The first hereditary last names on German soil are found in the second half of the 12th century, slightly later than in England and France. However, it was not until the 16th century that they became stabilized. The practice of adopting hereditary last names started in the southern areas of Germany, and little by little spread northwards during the Middle Ages. Almost every city, town or village existing in the Middle Ages has served to name one or more families. Where a man lived was his means of identification. When a man left his birthplace or village where he had been known, and went elsewhere, people would likely refer to him by the name of his former residence or birthplace, or by the name of the land which he owned. Since the dawn of civilisation the need to communicate has been a prime drive of all higher mankind. The more organized the social structure became, the more exigent the need to name places, objects and situations essential to the survival and existence of the social unit. From this common stem arose the requirements to identify families, tribes and individual members evolving into a pattern in evidence today. In the formation of this history, common usage of customs, trades, locations, patronymic and generic terms were frequently adopted as last names. The demands of bureaucracy formally introduced by feudal lords in the 11th century, to define the boundaries and families within their fiefdoms, solidified the need for personal identification and accountability and last names became in general use from this time onwards. A noble member of the name was Herbert Spencer Gass (1888-1963) the American physiologist, born in Platteville, Wisconsin. He became professor at Washington University in 1916, and at Cornell in 1931. From 1935 he was the director of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research.
