Prosser family crest

The Welsh surname Prosser is of patronymic origin. The name is an Anglicized form of Welsh ap Rhosier meaning “son of Roger.” The personal name Roger is derived from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements hrod meaning “renown” and gar, ger meaning “spear, or lance,”which was introduced into England and Wales by the Normans in the 11th Century. The surname is first recorded in the latter half of the 13th Century  and can also be found as Roger, Roser, and the patronymics Proger and Prosser.The name is first recorded in the US in 1628 when immigration records record the arrival of Jane Prosser in Virginia.  A notable bearer of the name was the great Welsh rugby player Glyn Prosser (1907-1972.)
