The surname Fusilier is generally thought to have been an occupational surname. The origins of the name seem to lie with the Latin element "fusus" which denotes a "small wooden instrument used to spin thread." However, the word "fusil," is the French word for "gun."

Fusilier Early Origins



The surname Fusilier was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where this eminent family held a family seat from very early times.
