NESTOR Family History

Recorded in several forms including Nester, Nestor, Noster, and Nostor (English) Nesterov and Nesterin (Russian) and Nestorovic (Croatian), this is a surname of Ancient Greek origins. It is believed to derive from the word 'neisthai' meaning to return safely, and would seem to have been a 'Crusader' name. That is to say a name which was brought back to Europe from the Middle East in the 12th century and following one of the twelve famous expeditions, known to history as the Crusades. These expeditions were principally based on Greece and Cypus, and their primary aim was to free the Holy Land (Palestine) from the Muslim grip.
