Mercer Genealogy & History

Mercer genealogy is British or Scottish, though the name derives from medieval French. It comes from the Old French "mercier," which in turn derives from the Latin "mercarius"; both mean "merchant." Mercer was an occupational surname that denoted a merchant, especially someone who dealt in textile fabrics, particularly expensive fabrics such as silk and velvet. In Britain, the name first appears in Northumberland. Mercer family history in the United States begins at least as early as the twentieth century, with Mercers landing in Barbados, Virginia, and New England as early as the 1630s. Famous Mercers include singer-songwriter Johnny Mercer.
