OFFICER Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Norman French origin, and has two possible sources. Firstly, the surname may derive from the Anglo-Norman French "officer", officer, an agent derivative of the Old French "office", duty, service, from the Latin "officium", service, task, and would have been an occupational name for the holder of any office. Secondly, the surname may be an occupational name for a sewer of gold embroidery, from the Anglo-Norman French "orfroiser", an agent derivative of the Old French "orfrois", Late Latin "auriphyrigium", Phrygian gold; the Phrygians being famed in antiquity for their gold embroidery.
