The ancient roots of the Caesar family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Caesar comes from when the family lived in Yorkshire. The relationship between the famed Julius Caesar and the surname are probably scarce as the name's spelling in say the 13th or 14th centuries was quite different. However, one should consider that the bearer may have assumed the name in honor of the noted Roman.

Caesar Early Origins



The surname Caesar was first found in Kent, where they held a family seat from the Middle Ages.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



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 Caesar arrived in North America very early:
