First mentioned in 1586, Buhler, a Mennonite family name in Danzig and Tiegenhof, West Prussia, was originally urban and of Flemish affiliation. It became extinct in West Prussia, but was transplanted to Russia and subsequently to the United States and Canada. Among the better known members of the family were Abraham Buhler, elder of the Grosswerder congregation, 1726-1729; Hans Buhler, elder of the same congregation, 1741-1754; Abraham Buhler, son of Hans, distinguished minister at Rosenort, 1753-1791; Jakob Buhler (d. 1855), minister at Berdyansk, South Russia, friend and early adherent of Pastor Edward Wüst; and Bernhard Buhler, minister at Berdyansk, and after migrating to North America, elder of a church at Buhler, Kansas, which carries the family name. Buler also seems to be a Swiss Mennonite name. Hans Buler, a tailor, emigrated from Bern in 1711.
