Ferber. Polish nobility since 1515. In a golden field three black boar heads with silver fangs, placed at 2 and 1; Helmet decoration: a peacock's tail, topped with a boar's head .


Ferber was the name of a German  patrician family  in  Danzig  from the 15th to the 18th century.     

In 1415 the long-distance merchant  Ewerd  Ferber  immigrated to Danzig with his half-brother Govel from  Kalkar  on the Lower Rhine and founded an influential patrician family there. This produced a bishop, six mayors, six councilors, three aldermen and three canons.    

In 1786 the family died out.
