The surname Grossert is derived from the Middle English word "gros," meaning "large," and was originally a nickname for a large man.

Grossert Early Origins



The surname Grossert was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat but we may conclude that it is from some source in Normandy where the name was popular in pre-conquest times. The Grossarts were an ancient French family of Rotterdam.
