  4. English: from a reduced form of Middle English assayer, an agent derivative of assay ‘trial’, ‘test’, Old French essay (from Late Latin exagium, a derivative of exagmināre ‘to weigh’), hence an occupational name for an assayer of metals or a taster of food.
  5. English: occupational name for a maker or seller of say, a type of cloth, from Middle English say + the agent suffix -er. See also Say.
  6. Welsh: occupational name from Welsh saer ‘carpenter’ or from saer maen ‘stonecutter’, i.e. mason.
