DEPKE Family HistoryThis is a name of Prussian (German) origins, and is recorded under a number of spellings including Deppe, Deppen and Depke. As "Depke" it is also recorded heraldically, in Riestap's "Amorial General" for Europe, the Coat of Arms being a blue field charged with in base a Turkish crescent and in chief three knights' spurs, all gold. This is a blazon which implies victory over the infidel, and therefore a Crusader background, although this is not proven. The name is derived from the Germanic "depp", a nickname for somebody who played practical jokes, or who may have been a professional comedian.
