Origin of Surname

Le Mesurier is an ancient Guernsey name. It first appears in Guernsey records in 1274 in the form Mesurier and then about the year 1300 as Le Mesurier or Le Masurier. There are various theories about its original meaning which depend on the way it was spelt before the days of printing. The most persuasive is that it was an occupational name describing a person engaged in measuring land or possibly vessels and boats.
