The name Nusser reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Nusser family lived in Leicestershire. The name, however, is a reference to Noiers, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Nusser Early Origins



The surname Nusser was first found in Leicestershire where they were Lords of the manor of Knossington, and where they had been granted lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book survey in 1086, the family was shown with several spellings, de Noiers, de Noies, de Nouuers, Noers, Nourse. The first Lord of the manor was Simon de Noers, and he was succeeded by Robert de Nowers, Lord of the manor of Knossington in 1278.

Nusser Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Nusser family name include Nourse, Norse, Nurse, Nowers, Noers, Noies and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Nusser family to immigrate North America:
