Origins Available: English, French


The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England produced the name of Baise. It was given to a short person. The surname Baise is derived from the Old English words bas and basse, meaning low or short. These words ultimately stem from the Latin word bassus which means thick or heavy-set. The surname Baise may also be a nickname for someone resembling a fish, or it may be a metonymic name for someone holding the occupation of fishmonger.

Early Origins of the Baise family


The surname Baise was first found in Lincolnshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Migration of the Baise family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Baise arrived in North America very early:
