The Stiebel family was a branch of the Swabian family Günzburg, who lived in Frankfurt from around 1560. Their name derived from their family home, the Stiefel. For nearly 200 years after 1590, members of the family lived in the Grüne Tür. The family had two main branches, and retained the old Günzburg family name until 1700.
Family members dealt in hides and textiles, but were mainly involved in the Hanau Public Treasury Lottery. Seligmann Abraham (1756 to 1796), both his sons, and six of his grandsons were lottery collectors.
The doctor Friedrich Stiebel was a descendant of this family.
