Origins of surname

This surname, which is found in a wide variety of spellings throughout Europe, is said to be derived from the Roman Caesar, meaning emperor.

Early records

This surname was brought to Jersey by William Cayzer, who married Mary Ann Drillot of Guernsey at St Helier in 1834. Two years later Henry Cayzer, from Plymouth, married Ann Goodwin, of Chatham, at the same church. Although William had a brother Henry, it is not believed to be the Henry who came to Jersey. He, according to one of the trees below, was William's first cousin.

However, the second tree shows a different ancestry for Henry Cayzer and we have not been able to determine which of the two suggested lines is more accurate.
