Priest is an English occupational surname, likely for someone who worked for a priest or played one as an actor, as clergy were not allowed to have children and thus could not pass down surnames. It comes from the Old English preost, meaning a village elder, and acquired the religious meaning later. Priest family history starts in 963, when Aelfsige Preost was noted in the Hertfordshire English Bynames list. Priest genealogy includes poet and children´┐Żs author Robert Priest and actress Patricia Priest.
