HISTORY OF THE SPINDLER NAME (Source www.surnamedb.com)
This is a surname which is exactly the same in both spelling and meaning in English and German. It is of pre medieval origins, and derives from a 7th century word "spinel", which describes a spindle upon which wool was spun.
A spindler however was not a spinner of textiles, but a maker of the actual spinning frames. Occupational surnames were often not hereditary, they only became so after about the 14th century, when a son continued in his fathers business or occupation. If for some reason he did not, he would sometimes be called by both his occupation and that of his father as well!
