Origins Available: English, German


The roots of the distinguished German surname Keser lie in the former duchy of Swabia. The name is derived from the Middle High German word "kaeser," denoting a person who made and sold cheese.

Keser Early Origins



The surname Keser was first found in Swabia, where it is believed to have first emerged, initially borne by dairy farmers and cheesemongers. The earliest documented instance of the name has been traced to this region, where Arnold Chesere was recorded to have lived in 1246. The young Keser family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Swabian society.
