Name Meaning

French (northern): variant of Casier (and, in North America, an altered form of this), from casier, a regional form of Old French chasier (from a diminutive of Latin caseus ‘cheese’), a term denoting an openwork basket in which cheese for tasting was displayed; hence by extension an occupational name for a cheesemaker.

History: Philippe Casier from Calais in Pas-de-Calais, France, married Marie Taine in Calais in 1634, died in New York, NY, in 1663.
