The following information is taken from a document from The Historical Research Center:
The German surname Ziegelmeyer is occupational in origin, being one of those names based on the type of work a man once did or the profession he pursued. In this case the name is derived from "ziegel", brick, and "meier" or "mayer", overseer and simply denotes one who worked as an overseer in a brick making industry. Ziegelmeyer seems to have been an official title and may have been granted, in appointment, by the municipal government. As every community relied on the availability of brick for expansion the position of the Ziegelmeyer was obviously a responsible one.
(Note: It has been pointed out to me that in Germany the word "brick" means a roof tile. )
Early instances of the name include reference to one Berchtolt Ziegelmair who lived in Augsburg in 1924 ( Allgauer Heimatbucher X1, 42). One Hans Ziegelmair who lived in Luchen near Munich in 1497 is also on record. (Monumenta Boica XVIII, 635).
