The surname Saucier was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where this distinguished family held a family seat at Le Saussaye in Eure in the arrondissement of Louviers, in the canton of Amfreville-La-Campagne. Anschetil was the ancestor of this great aristocratic family of Saussaye. La Saussaye was a fief of the Norman branch of the Harcourts. In the registers of Philip Augustus in 1212 they were listed as sub-infeudated fees (vassal of a feudal lord) of Breteuil.

One can encounter great variation in the spelling of French surnames; in part, as spelling, and the spelling names was not yet standardized during the early development of the written French language. Later, there was much branching and movement of families, and spellings would change according to region. Variations of the name Saucier include Saucey, Saucy, Saussay, Saussaye, Saucier and others.
