Burrier Family History
Burrier Name Meaning
Probably an altered spelling of French Bourrier. In eastern France this was an occupational name for a harness maker, from a derivative of Old French bourrel ‘harness’, ‘collar’. In western France burrier denoted a thin wisp of straw, and was probably applied as a metonymic occupational name for a winnower.
