Funk Family Name (Funck)

Information we have about the Funk name is from this quote "This Funk line is, according to B. H. Unruh, of origin of the Mennonite Swiss" taken from the writing of Heinrich Goossen, a great grandson of Peter P Funk.

In Robert Guenther's book Passionate Possessions he writes " The Funk Swiss family name has been mentioned in the Danzig area since 1674 and the Thorn area since 1700. One theory believes that the name arrived in the Danzig area from Switzerland by way of South Germany and Moravia. The Funk name was not found earlier in Holland or North Germany so the conclusion is that the West Prussian Funks (Funcks) may have come from the Moravian Hutterites.
