Origins Available: English, French, Italian


The name Cesar is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of 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.

Cesar Early Origins



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

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Cesars to arrive in North America:
