    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name from Middle English usher ‘usher, doorkeeper’, Old French (le) ussier, huissier, Anglo-Norman French usser, from Late Latin ustiarius, a derivative of classical Latin ostium ‘door, gate’. The term was also used in the Middle Ages of a court official charged with accompanying a person of rank on ceremonial occasions, and this may be a partial source of the surname. This name has been in Ireland since 1302, when John le Ussher was constable of Dublin Castle, and has sometimes been used as an equivalent of Hesson .

    Jewish (from Poland and Ukraine): from a southern Yiddish pronunciation of the Yiddish male personal name Osher (Hebrew Asher ).

    History: Hezekiah Usher (died 1676) is buried in King's Chapel Burying Ground, Boston, MA.
