Lazarus Family HistoryThis is an important European surname, although one of biblical origins. Originally only recorded as a Christian surname, it is one of a major group of such originally Hebrew names which include Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Thomas, Michael and many, many, more, which today form the basis of the surnames lists of the Western hemisphere. These names are known as Crusader surnames. They are Jewish in origin, but were not Jewish when applied in Europe. They were originally introduced into their respective countries and in their individual spellings by returning knights and pilgrims who served on the famous 'Crusades' during the Christian Revival period in the 11th and 12th century.
