The surname Mast is German and Swiss German in origin. It has been found written Mast and Maust. The Mast side of my family originated in Guiggisberg, Canton Berne, Switzerland. Jacob Mast immigrated to America in 1737 aboard the ship 'Charming Nancy'.

HI! my full name is Alexandria Joelle Mast. I wish I had my family tree book with me, but I'd say we are distant cousins. My grandpa tells me that the first mast to come over to America in out family was Jacob Mast. I'd have to get my book out to see how close we are related but I love looking at my family history.

Alex, I would be interested in hearing if we are from the same Jacob Mast, my Jacob was considered the immigrant Jacob and there was another Jacob that was a minister. I hope to hear more from you.

Hello Brenda-
Jacob Mast is also my great, great, great, great, great grandfather. I'm wondering if you have information further back than Hans (Benedict) Mast born 1570? My cousin traced us back to him, but no further. Laureen Snyder you can contact me at laureentreece@hotmail.com
