Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English, Scottish, and Irish: occupational name for a janitor or gatekeeper, Middle English usher (Anglo-Norman French usser, Old French ussier, huissier, from Late Latin ustiarius, a derivative of classical Latin ostium ‘door’, ‘gate’). The term was also used in the Middle Ages of a court official charged with accompanying a person of rank on ceremonial occasions, and this may be a partial souce of the surname.
