History

Anglicised surname Prosser is considered to be a Welsh surname. The name originated as an Anglicisation of the Welsh-language ap Rhosier, or ap Rosser, both meaning son of Roger. The English-language personal name Roger is derived from the Old French personal name Roger, Rogier. 

Originally, Prosser is thought to have come from Germany where many thousands of people still have the surname in the Bavaria region, however the associated names above are popular wherever Welsh families have migrated, especially USA.
