Sesar is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in Yorkshire. The relationship between the famed Julius Caesar and the surname are probably scarce as the name's spelling in say the 13th or 14th centuries was quite different. However, one should consider that the bearer may have assumed the name in honor of the noted Roman.

Sesar Early Origins



The surname Sesar was first found in Kent, where they held a family seat from the Middle Ages.

Sesar Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Sesar family name include Caesar, Caeser, Sesare, Cesar, Sesar, Caesere and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Sesar surname or a spelling variation of the name include: John Caeser who sailed to Philadelphia in 1856.
