Lanser History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Lanser family

The surname Lanser was first found in Leicestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

Migration of the Lanser family

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Lanser were among those contributors: Lucien Lancelot, aged 25, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1919; Marie Lancelot, aged 23, who arrived at Ellis Island from France, in 1919; Marie Louise Lancelot, aged 30, who arrived at Ellis Island from France, in 1919.
