KEYSER Family History

Recorded in various spellings including Keyser, Cayser, Kaysor, Caysor, Cayzer, and Cassar, this very unusual name is English. It is however a development of the early Germanic name and word "Kaiser", itself derived from the Roman imperial title "Caesar", which was originally a family name. Folk etymology in classical times associated the name with the latin word "caesaries", meaning a head of hair, but the orgin is probably Etruscan and possibly a version of the later "Charles". Since Julias Caesar, the word has been adopted as a generic title for imperial rulers.
